It’s Wednesday, July 30, and that means that Biff Bam Pop! is halfway through it’s first week celebrating Batman’s 75th birthday. We’re calling it Batman @ 75. Clever aren’t we?
But Wednesday, July 30th also means new comics have arrived at your local shop! So, I’m left straddling the line of highlighting a cool new comic book release – whilst also keeping the Dark Knight’s birthday in mind.
Now, I don’t have to do that, but I am anyway. This time, I’m doing it for the kids.
Follow me after the jump for the 4-1-1 on DC Comics Presents: Batman Adventures #1.

If there’s one thing I miss about my childhood, it’s cartoons. Whether it was Saturday morning or after school during the week, cartoons were where it was at.
Sure, there are some good ones today and I’m still interested and entertained by the art form – but the magic isn’t quite the same now as it was then. That said, I like to think that those Batman-flavoured cartoons of late still enthrall the kids watching them like the animated episodes of various superheroes did when I was young(er). They kind of have that feeling about them, don’t they?
So, what better way for a kid to celebrate Batman’s 75th anniversary then to read a comic book based on the Batman cartoon they’re currently watching?
DC Comics Presents: Batman Adventures is a 96-page compilation for a low price of $7.99. It features some of the best all-ages Batman stories ever published including Batman Adventures #2 and #27 as well as Batman: Gotham Adventures #2 and #4 and Adventures in the DC Universe #3. Here, alongside our birthday bat, you’ll find some of his most notorious villains in Catwoman, the Joker, Two-Face and more!
Believe me when I say that some of batman’s top storytellers are found in this compilation including Paul Dini, Ty Templeton, Kelley Puckett, Bruce Timm and Terry Beatty.
Make the run to your local comic book shop today and pick up DC Comics Presents: Batman Adventures. Celebrate Batman’s 75th birthday with a young kid – or the young kid in you!
