Err, the right side looks kinda weird since it no longer forms the shape of a bat and all that.

Nice, but does every DC fan page of Facebook need to post this. Go to Wonder Woman's page and see batman.

Isn't this just everyday at DC?

And watch them do nothing for Wonder Woman.

Yes, but this time at least they have an excuse.

I have a rare case of extreme symmetricity obsessive compulsive disorder, and this logo just made me lose my mind. Thanks DC.

Just another excuse for DC to hype Batman even more than what is usual.

Meanwhile Teen Titans will celebrate their 50th anniversary this year with a cancelled book and the equal of a footnote mention from DC, most likely.

You people act like the market is clamoring for less Batman and more of *insert your favorite hero* here.

Wonder Woman's anniversary is 2016.

@outside_85: Maybe, if we're lucky, they'll relaunch the series with a better writer.

@maddpanda531: Well, rumor has it that the wife of David Finch the artist is going to be the one that takes over from Brian Azzarello on Wonder Woman, if that rumor proves to be true, it means DC will hand over it's best written title to someone who has written only 1 comic book. I will have to see the improvement before I believe it.

I always thought it looked more like Stewie Griffin's Darth Vader.

@outside_85: Um. I was talking about Teen Titans, in a purely speculative sense.

Also, they'd better not do that...

DC isn't going to just stop promoting their cash cow. Batman sells too bad for them he's pretty much the only thing that sells. If they would just put him in every single book they would increase their sales.

@lone_wolf_and_cub: Wtf, they did the same thing for superman, so it's not like he's the only one getting a celebration.

Come on man it's Batman 75th Anniversary, why do you have to ruin it by hating, gtfo

@i3io_hazard: I'm not hating on him. It makes sense for DC to sell more Batman.

i wouldn't be surprised if the commemorative free book was a reprint of the first appearance. In either case though, it is a cool time to be a bat fan right now :)

I am honestly kind of underwhelmed with logo, yeah i know it's just a damn logo but it's freaking batman's 75th, you couldn't try to do something a little better DC?

@maddpanda531: My point was that DC hasn't been very good at picking writers as of late :)

It's 2016 and she's appearing in Batman vs Superman. So she will have a big anniversary.

Oh yeah and Happy 75 (Technically its in May but...) Batman keep on bringing Justice to Gotham City.

What's this for? I mean I don't follow the logic- "It's Batman's 75th anniversary, so to celebrate, we're going to make a variant of his logo." Or am I missing something? Does this make sense to anyone else?

@outside_85: That is most definitely true. (In most cases, at least)

@maddpanda531: (And about 10 min after I wrote that, I learned Jeff Lemire is writing Teen Titans: Earth One with the Dodson's on art)
