Who said you need to have superpowers to be a superhero? Take a look at Batman and you know that being a superhero goes above and beyond the ability to release spider webs from your wrist or shoot laser beam from eyes. The DC Comics character which first made his appearance in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939 as the Batman, went on to become one of the most popular superhero character of all time. Also known as the Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader or by his secret identity Bruce Wayne, the legendary hero has touched many of our lives; sometimes alone, sometimes as a team player in Justice League. And now, he is here to inspire us again, this time to write.
Montegrappa pens have introduced a new line of limited edition pens in their Cult series. Inspired and dedicated to Batman, the Batman pen series captures the spirit of the Caped Crusader, created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. A product of the partnership between Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Montegrappa pens, there will only be 1939 Batman fountain pens and 1939 Batman rollerball pens; which is appropriate given that the number signifies the year of the superhero’s first introduction. According Montegrappa’s CEO Giuseppe Aquila, “Montegrappa’s Batman Limited Edition encapsulates the Dark Knight’s legacy for the joy of our fellow collectors, as well as for the legions of comic book aficionados around the globe.”
The pen itself is detailed to the T in terms of capturing the essence of Batman. The body which is built of aluminum has a black anodized finish that lends the dark grey hue that is reminiscent of Batman’s original costume as seen in the DC comic. The entire body surface is engraved with several bats that seem to be in flight mode. The cap band is embezzled with the Bat-signal logo that will remind many of the famous introductory bat-logo that loomed over the sky of Gotham city in the beginning of every Batman episode. Right below it is the Montegrappa logo.
The clip is a stylized shape of Batman, which is made of black ruthenium plated brass. The Batman fountain pen is fitted with a white 18k gold nib which is chiseled with the famous oval bat logo in a contrasting color. Along with the 1939 pieces of Batman rollerball and fountain pen, Montegrappa is also releasing 500 sets that include Batman wristwatch and cufflinks.
Montegrappa Batman pen is your opportunity to relive the unmatched legend of the superhero. The pens come in a fantastic keepsake packaging, which features a large bat symbol on the lid and a detailed sketch of Gotham city at night on the inside. Snatch one for yourself or gift it to an avid Batman fan. Do you hear the music yet? Batman is ready to fight crimes, are you?
