Warner Bros. Discovery to put on pop-up Batman comic book giveaways

New York, New York – March 30, 2024 – Warner Bros.

Created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, Batman was introduced in 1939’s comic book Detective Comics #27 and since then the Dark Knight has stood as a symbol of determination, courage, and justice to generations of fans for over 85 years.

Today, Batman is recognized across the globe thanks to his portrayal in universally beloved comics, TV shows, animation and movies.

Through it all, Batman’s continued adventures through the pages of DC’s comics reaches readers around the globe every month. Batman has inspired countless writers and artists to tell stories of heroism and perseverance. He is vengeance. He is the night. He is Batman.
