Wednesday is 75th anniversary of Batman


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --   Kalamazoo isn’t GothamCity, but Batman got a shout-out from the City Commission last night, with the declaration that this Wednesday will be the “Day of the Bat” in town. 

Warner Brothers picked Wednesday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the first Batman comic because the date coincides with the first day of Comic-Con in California.  \

A comic featuring a bat winged vigilante actually first hit shelves in the spring of 1939.

Last night the Caped Crusader was honored for his civic contributions, for being an inspiration, and always putting the city first.

The point is we can all be a little like Batman, even without the utility belt.
