NANA NANA NANA NANA ... BATMAN!

HAPPY BATMAN DAY!! So....what's Batman Day, you ask?

The internet says, "Batman Day is an annual event organized by DC Entertainment to celebrate and promote Batman. The first Batman Day was July 23, 2014. This was the year of the 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Batman in Detective Comics in 1939."

Woo hoo! So.....why does From The Bronx care about Batman Day, you ask?

We care because Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in The Bronx! We even made a little trivia card for it. (Original Art: Lee Bermejo)
