The US Postal Service confirmed a set of Batman stamps will be released October 9 in time for New York Comic Con 2014.
“Batman is the quintessential American superhero,” said U.S. Postal Service Executive Director of Stamp Services Susan McGowan. “What better way to introduce stamp collecting as an educational hobby the entire family can enjoy. A great way to get started is to visit the American Philatelic Society’s (APS) website — stamps.org. With nearly 32,000 members among more than 110 countries, it’s a perfect source for getting involved in stamp collecting.”
DC Comics was first to unveil images of the set.
Showcasing eight unique designs in a pane of 20 stamps, this new issuance from the U.S. Postal Service® celebrates the 75th anniversary of Batman. Four versions of the iconic DC Comics Super Hero are depicted from four eras of comic book history. In addition, there are four incarnations of the Bat emblems. The Batman Stamp Set Collection of eight limited-edition Forever Stamps celebrates Batman’s Evolution in Comics.
