As one of the world’s best known superheroes, Batman has touched the lives of several generations of readers in the realm of comics, graphic novels and beyond. Promoting these comics and the other outstanding offerings available from DC is also a great way to bring in comic book fans who might not normally frequent the library. What better way to celebrate Batman Day than by giving your readers two of these phenomenal stories of the caped crusader.
