BATMAN DAY 75TH ANNIVERSARY SATURDAY 26TH OF JULY



This week sees the date DC has set in place to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of one of comics and pop culture's most enduring and iconic legend, The Caped Crusader, The Dark Knight, The Batman.
It is truly a monumental milestone event and with your help we'd like to celebrate Batman's birthday in style with prizes, party treats, party games and of course YOU! Of course since Batman wants for nothing, YOU GET ALL THE PRESENTS!!!

For starters how does the gift of 15% OFF any full price BATMAN TRADE PAPERBACKS sound? Pretty good, huh?!


Secondly, DC is providing us with a FREE copy of DETECTIVE COMICS #27 SPECIAL EDITION to give away. The issue is a reimagining of the 1939 Bob Kane/Bill Finger original comic book, designed by Chip Kidd with a script by The New York Times #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer. Any Standing Order customers that currently have Batman on their list will automatically get a copy of this, the remainer will be available to people to pick up on the day at the counter with a limit of one per person, while stocks last.

DC has also been kind enough to create four different limited edition Paper Masks, capturing four very different eras of Batman. Detective #27 Batman, Batman '66, Dark Knight Returns Batman and New DC 52 Batman masks will be available for customers to choose from at a limit of one mask per person, while stocks last.


Of course it would be nice if you could do a little something to help turn old Batsie's scowl upside down on his special day! Seeing how this character inspires and influences people so much, our thought is to create the biggest group Birthday Card to Batman we can by you telling us "What is great about Batman? Who is he and what does he mean to YOU?"

You can submit your thoughts either by email at all.star.comics@hotmail.com or private message the store Facebook page. We'll collect everyone's pieces and put them together as one big post here as well as on our Facebook page on Saturday evening for the world to see. As a reward, anyone that takes the time to send us well wishes for Batman will receive a copy of the Free DETECTIVE COMICS #27 Special Edition, one of each of the four limited edition Batman masks and the extremely EXCLUSIVE Special Edition All Star Batman Incorporated Business Card we are making especially to celebrate the day.

As an EXTRA bonus the piece we like best will also receive a $100 All Star Gift Voucher!


Still want more?! Well of course, any birthday party worth attenting needs games but Batman doesn't really DO games. Instead he prefers to spend time hitting the streets of Gotham in his sweet, sweet ride and now you can too! That's right, we'll have a scale Batman "89 Batmobile and a Batman Begins Tumbler SLOT CARS on hand for you to race against either a GCPD Squad Car or the Joker's Nascar, kindly supplied from Slot Cars Alive. You'll be able to take the car of your choice for a spin or enter our BEST LAP TIME COMP if you are up for a challenge!



Oh and what's a Birthday Party without party food? We have that covered too but can't promise there will be any left if you don't get in early enough! :D

So it's a big day planned to celebrate the creation of the larger than life mythos that is BATMAN, in this his 75th year of existence! We sincerely hope you can join us for the fun on the day! :D

New Comics For Wednesday 23rd of July


So last week we strung the news that Cazz from Nerd Burger was joining our team and we hosted a shotgun launch for stellar local books Falling Star #2 and Velocity Volume 4. This week, we've got BATMAN DAY antics planned for Saturday to celebrate the Dark Knight's 75th anniversary and the boys from RADIOACTIVE LOUNGE are back on Friday night from 6pm to cover all things Batman! Also there could be an Eisner nomination in there too. Big couple of weeks! Oh, not to forget this massive week with some absolute amazing titles!

Getting a new tale of one of the X-families favourite heroes in STORM #1. More BATMAN titles than you can poke a stick at! Origin stories of Harley and Green Arrow in SECRET ORIGINS #4. The very best and worst of barbarians in GROO VS CONAN #1. Walt Simonson has another swing at Norse legend with RAGNAROK #1. 80's cartoon have never looked more 60's in TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #1. Warren Ellis has a crack at reviving another classic Image title with SUPREME BLUE ROSE #1. Two separate series for two different Doctors with DOCTOR WHO 10TH #1 and DOCTOR WHO 11TH #1. The conclusion to the Death of Archie in LIFE WITH ARCHIE COMIC #37. Bone and Rasl creator Jeff Smith sneaks out a new one with TUKI SAVE THE HUMANS #1.That movie that we all loved but didn't do that well behind the scenes in DREDD ILLUS MOVIE SCRIPT & VISUALS GN. Next in the series of Jeff Brown Vader parenting books, GOODNIGHT DARTH VADER HC.  Lapham's heartbreaking and gut wrenching honesty of people's lives who are on the edge in MURDER ME DEAD TP. WALKING DEAD TP VOL 21 ALL OUT WAR PT 2 is always a crowd pleaser! Get on board with Emily Carroll's indie internet horror wonder wit her collected works, THROUGH THE WOODS GN/HC. What Lucas would have done with SW if he had carte blanche right back at the beginning with STAR WARS LUCAS DRAFT TP. Perfectly timed for the new Guardians film's release is the awesome series that set up the current book in GOTG BY ABNETT AND LANNING COMPLETE COLL TP VOL 01.
We could go on but I think we are starting to bore you. ;)
If there is anything else you need, just let us know! :D
