Description

As part of DC’s year-long global celebration of Batman’s 80th anniversary, DC is publishing a momentous 1,000th issue of DETECTIVE COMICS.

The series that introduced the world’s most popular Super Hero and the title from which the DC brand was born. This must-have collector’s item debuts March 27, 2019 and includes all-new stories plus a wraparound cover from the powerhouse art team of fan favourite artist Jim Lee, inker Scott Williams and colorist Alex Sinclair.

DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 is highlighted by an original story from the team of writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Doug Mahnke that not only launches a new story arc but introduces a new version of the Arkham Knight to DC comics canon.

Tomasi is no stranger to this character, having written his video game origins in 2015’s BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT, GENESIS miniseries.

DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 also features a two-page spread spotlighting the current state of the Batman universe by Jason Fabok, plus a treasure trove of original stories from a who’s who of comic writers and artists, all honouring the milestone anniversary of The World’s Greatest Detective, including:

  • Kevin Smith and Jim Lee

  • Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev

  • Warren Ellis and Becky Cloonan

  • Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen

  • Denny O’Neil and Steve Epting (a sequel to O’Neil’s 1976 DETECTIVE COMICS story “There’s No Hope in Crime Alley”)

  • Christopher Priest and Neal Adams

  • Geoff Johns and Kelley Jones

  • Tom King, Tony Daniel and Joëlle Jones

  • Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo

  • James Tynion IV and Alvaro Martinez
