Batman Day Returns 9-17-16

When it comes to my two youngest sons, it's usually a toss up between Free Comic Book Day and Batman Day for the best trip to our local comic book store.  Well, DC kind of sealed the deal with this year's FCBD selections to the point where my youngest asked me when Batman Day was after we left the store.  Well, now I can tell him, and you that Batman Day is happening on September 17th this year and I can't wait.  Here is the official press release...
