The Caped Crusader celebrates his 75th anniversary this year, a feat which will be celebrated with special events all year long, including Batman Day on Wednesday, July 23.
DC Entertainment is partnering with thousands of comic book retailers, bookstores, and libraries on Batman Day to commemorate the Dark Knight’s influence in popular culture.
The Iowa City Public Library will celebrate Batman Day with a costume contest and a free screening of “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.” Don your best Caped Crusader apparel and enjoy an animated film in which we Batman is investigating the murders of several prominent gangsters at the same time his ex-fiancée is back in Gotham City.
Comic book artist Eric Gapstur will draw Batman sketches for anyone who wants one during the movie.
After the film, you’re invited to show us how much you know about Bruce Wayne’s Alter Ego in our Batman Trivia Challenge.
The celebration begins at 2 p.m. in Meeting Room A. It is free and open to all ages.
