To celebrate the 75th anniversary of DC's Batman comics, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Entertainment have taken the wraps off a special new Batman logo for the occasion.

The new black-and-white logo, shown above, merges the familiar Bat symbol associated with the superhero with the number 75, and will be used on Batman-related promotions, products and initiatives throughout the year.

The logo comes as part of a year-long '75 years of Batman' celebration, which, in addition to the commemorative logo, will include a "Cape/Cowl/Create" art exhibition at San Diego Comic-Con International in July featuring 20 artists' interpretations of The Dark Knight's cowl headpiece and cape.
