USPS releases new Batman stamps

Posted on

BATMAN STAMP 03
USPS

Holy collectible postage stamps, Batman. To honor the Caped Crusader’s 75th birthday—he first appeared in a May 1939 issue of Detective Comics—the United States Postal Service released eight different stamps commemorating the hero on Thursday. USPS teamed up with DC Entertainment to produce the stamps and has debuted them at New York Comic Con 2014.

Just the latest move to suggest we may be reaching “peak Batman,” the sheets of stamps include four different depictions of Batman from over the years, as well as four different interpretations of the Bat-Signal logo. These stamps will bear the words Batman Forever; we only hope they’ll do better than the last time those words were used together.
