To celebrate the first year of It’s A Stampede!, every day for 365 days I am presenting a totally informative, yet totally useless fact under the banner heading: ‘On this day in geekdom’.

Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

December 16th – On this day in 2009, DC Comics publishes Batman: 80-Page Giant issue #1. The Comixology preview reads: “The BATMAN 80-PAGE GIANT features can’t-miss action from some of today’s premiere up-and-coming talent working on your favourite characters! It’s the biggest blizzard of the year, and everyone in Gotham City is doing what they can to help. Find out what Batman, Robin, Alfred, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Veil, Poison Ivy and more get up to when snow brings Gotham City to a standstill!”

More tomorrow…
