DC Comics Celebrates 75th Year

This 2010, DC Comics  commemorates 75 years of world-renowned comic book characters and their adventures with consumer events and new film, television and DVD content releasing throughout the year.

This world-wide celebration of such a momentous event is so fitting for a giant like DC. Through out the years,  DC Comics characters have inspired blockbuster movies, classic television shows, engaging video games, exciting theme park attractions, and an array of consumer products for fans of all ages, worldwide. These are the characters that have shaped our notion of heroes, and created a modern mythology for every generation, across all media.

As part of its 75th year celebration, DC Comics invites everyone to join the DC Comics 75th Year Power Up! Super Heroes Challenge this June 19 and 20 at the SM Mega Mall Events Center. The activity camp will feature extreme outdoor activities, which will be set up indoors for the first time in its scale. This Father’s Day weekend, kids and parents alike can bring out the superhero in themselves through activities such as the Tyrolean Traverse, Two-Line Tight Rope, and the Zip Line.

The camp site will also feature a DC Comics Mini Museum where limited edition and toy collections from DC Comics, Toy Kingdom, collectors and fans will be on display. Everyone can expect an array of Batman, Superman, and Justice League toys and figurines.

To register, simply buy PhP500 worth of DC Comics products from the SM Department Store Character Shop and Boys Teens Wear departments between May 22 to June 20, 2010 to get a free DC Comics 75th Year bag tag. Use this as your event pass on June 19 and 20, to register at the DC Comics 75th Year Power Up! Super Heroes Challenge in the SM Megamall Building A Events Center. One bag tag entitles one participant to go through the course once.

You may also present any Batman or Superman personal care product by Master Kids at the registration booth to claim one bag tag to use as an entry pass to the DC Comics 75th Year Power Up! Super Heroes Challenge.

DC Comics 75th Anniversary will be the main theme of this year’s Toy Convention to be held on June 19 and 20 at the SM Mega Trade Halls 2 and 3. This year’s Toy Convention will include DC Comics- themed competitions and activities. Everyone is invited to come in a superhero or comic book character costume as Collectors Unlimited will attempt to gather the most number of people in superhero costumes in one location.

DC Comics is inviting Filipino comics artists who have rendered work for DC Comics to autograph your DC Comics collectibles in the Toy Convention and Toy Kingdom, SM Megamall. There will also be a special auction of limited edition DC Comics Encyclopedias to participants who purchase DC Comics licensed products from the DC Comics booth in the Toy Convention.
