New Batman Stamps from USPS
On October 9th, the US Post Office will issue its contribution to the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader : a limited edition set of 8 different stamps, showcasing Batman's representation across the "ages". A special round stamp with the iconic Batman logo will complete the set.
The stamps will be presented at New York Comic Con with a first-day-of-issue ceremony.
I for one am wondering whether this set will be able to compete with Canada Post's Superman issue of 2013. If the Super Heroes sets the USPS put out some years ago are anything to go by, that is seriously doubtful. But at last the typography of these new issues is of better quality. And I love the pun on "Forever"...
