by Greg Belfrage

DC Entertainment is celebrating the 75 anniversary of Batman in grand fashion! Batman first appeared in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics (#27).

A new anniversary animation has been released titled, Batman: Strange Days . The short was produced by Bruce Timm, the creator of Batman: The Animated Series .

Timm went back to Batman's roots by presenting the Dark Knight much as he first appeared in 1939. The short has a beautiful film-noir quality and features Batman battling Hugo Strange.

There will be a flood of special edition comic books, animated features, television shows, video games and fan contests to celebrate Batman's 75th anniversary. They've also created a special website for the anniversary, Batman75.com
