Today is the day when we celebrate heroes with scream whispers and complicated relationships with their parents (and butler). It’s Batman Day! And here is how you can celebrate the bat-day in Los Angeles.

Free bat-comics

Batman Endgame Special Edition No. 1 will be available for free at comic shops, book stores and various libraries. This includes Hot Topic, Best Buy, FYE and Gamestop, but you should probably call ahead.

Can’t make it to a signing? Or not particularly interested in leaving your bat-cave? We got you. Celebrate your housebound self with this free Batman activity book that includes coloring pages, cut-out masks and puzzles, all batman themed.

Free bat-cakes

The first 100 customers who go into a Sprinkles cupcake shop dressed like Batman (now you see what the Batman activity cut -out book was for) get free Dark Knight cupcakes. Because when we think of Batman, we always think of cupcakes.

May the bat be with you.
