He protects Gotham City as the caped crusader. He lends a hand to the Justice League in keeping the whole universe safe. Now, Batman will protect your mail as it travels through the US Postal Service.
Yes, Batman stamps are coming on October 9, 2014, in conjunction with this year’s New York Comic Con. The stamps will feature four eras of Batman, from the original 1939 design to the modern day. They’ll be sold in sheets of 20 as Forever stamps priced at the current 49 cents each (but will be usable even as rates rise). A fifth Bat-symbol stamp is also in the mix.
Susan McGowan, director of stamp services and corporate licensing for the USPS, told USAToday that Batman is the “quintessential American superhero,” and calls the new set “thrilling.” DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee calls the limited edition stamps “an honor.”
