DC Comics knows how to celebrate an anniversary. In recent years both Action Comics and Detective Comics have celebrated landmark 1000th issues. The Dark Knight himself, Batman, has celebrated his 80th birthday and most recently Wonder Woman celebrated its 750th issue.

Coming up in 2020 we have the 80th anniversaries for two of Batman’s biggest foes: The Joker and Catwoman. Both characters are celebrating their anniversary with 100-page spectacular’s and now DC has debuted artwork for character masks which will be available in comic book stores for both characters.
