Batman Day is in a few days, September 26th. No really, it is. But it’s being celebrated early in comic shops around the country today. Because … Saturday.

 

In honor of previous September marketing ploys celebrating the Dark Knight, a few years ago I started an annual tradition of writing about the Caped Crusader. (I think it takes doing something at least three times to call something a tradition, so this post is the required third thing. Nailed it.)

I’ve been meaning to post some of my thoughts on the in-production reboot of the cinematic¬†Hellboy.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, Hellboy is the creation of comic book artist/writer Mike Mignola. He’s a big red demon. A heroic one.

Well, something must have told me, since I’m writing this blog post.

Me am Miles Manners, reporter.

Today, my Twitter feed was a buzz with it being #NationalSuperheroDay. Right on! If I had realized this earlier, I’d have prepared something more meaningful. So now I’m on notice for next year.

Hey, I sometimes talk about comic books or movies/television based on comic books here on my blog, because I enjoy reading comics (or graphic novels if my saying comic books makes you roll your eyes. )

Yes, I’m a grown-ass man, but there seems in general to be less of a stigma for people to talk about enjoying stories presented in a serialized, visual format. Or at least, I thought so. But October had some weird news relating to comics, and I thought I’d kick some of that around.

Happy Batman Day!¬†I didn’t even know Batman Day was a thing until last year, when it had already passed (but I wrote up a long post about Batman after the fact and promised I’d try to keeping having something timely about the Caped Crusader going forward.)

Straight up, I thought Batman Day was going to happen later this month, so I was surprised when I visited my favorite comic shop this week and discovered that Batman Day, like Batman does, had snuck up on me. But I’d made a promise to write about Batman, so here it is.

This post might seem a bit random and rambly, but so do the ones I plan out months in advance, to be honest.

2015Daredevil_Marvel_Press_090315

Way back when, I wrote something about Netflix’s new series Daredevil. It had just started, I hadn’t seen much of it, so I talked a bit about Daredevil from the comics, how it was influential on other things I read, etc.
