It's the birthday Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

Everyone's favorite rich guy dressed as a bat is celebrating his 80th birthday this month! The very first appearance of the Caped Crusader dates all the way back to March 1939, where he showed up in Detective Comics #27.

Over the years, he's become one of the most iconic pop culture figures ever, making his mark on comics, film, TV, video games, and even a pretty underrated Prince album. So naturally, we've got to do something to mark the occasion.

Well, Muse Comics and Games in Missoula is doing just that: they'll be celebrating Batman's birthday on Saturday, March 30th with a store-wide sale on everything Batman. That means 20% off on all Batman and Detective Comics graphic novels, and they'll have some limited edition merchandise on hand while supplies last.

So, Batfans of Missoula, will you be checking this out?
