    NYCC: USPS Issues Batman 75th Anniversary "Forever" Stamps - IGN

    The U.S. Postal Service is teaming up with DC Comics to produce a series of limited edition collector stamps in honor of Batman's 75th anniversary this year.

    The collectors set follows in the tradition of last year's Superman anniversary stamps, but this time they're only available in the U.S. The stamps include the artwork of several iconic Batman artists from his past seven-and-a-half decades of existence -- including designs by Jim Lee (Modern Age), Neal Adams (Bronze Age), Dick Sprang (Silver Age), and Bob Kane (Golden Age).

    The set comes in a frame that showcases eight classic character designs, four incarnations of bat-symbols and a total of 20 stamps.

    DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee spoke on the timelessness of Batman, saying how through television, film, and video games, the character is now "more relevant than ever." The superstar artist also expressed his confidence that the Caped Crusader will affect generations for another 75 years, and beyond.
