This Day in History: Detective Comics #27 - the 1st appearance of Batman!


Is today, April 25, 1939, the date that DC published Detective Comics #27?  There is a general thought that it is.  Why?  There is the confusion...you see Batman #1 was published the following year on April 25, 1940.  There are some that think it was out on April 18th 1939, rather than the 25th.  Dc Comics has utilized the April 25th date in the past, so thats what we'll go with here at the Legion!  Happy Bat-Day!
