Today is International Batman Day

Well, I love Batman, and I have since 1971.  Not the goofy “pow” Batman of the 1960s TV series, but the dark and brooding Batman of Denny O’Neill, Neal Adams, Jim Aparo, Len Wein, Frank Miller, Bruce Timm, Matt Wagner, Paul Pope, Chuck Dixon, and so many others.

Batman is, to my mind, the greatest hero of post-rural America, a Natty Bumppo and Huck Finn for an urbanized republic.

Happy International Batman Day.
