As part of DC’s year-long global celebration of Batman’s 80thanniversary, DC is publishing Detective Comics #1000 on March 27, 2019. It includes all-new stories plus a wraparound cover from the Jim Lee, Scott Williams and colorist Alex Sinclair which you may have seen a bit of elsewhere. Here’s the full thing.

Detective Comics #1000 starts with a new story by regular team Peter J. Tomasi and artist Doug Mahnke that launches a new story arc and introduces a new version of the Arkham Knight to DC comics canon. Tomasi wrote his video game origins in 2015’s Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis miniseries. And here he is.

Detective Comics#1000 also features a two-page spread spotlighting the current state of the Batman universe by Jason Fabok, plus these fine folks.

  • 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 ComicsS 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

Variant covers – and retailer variants – will be by the likes of Steve Rude, Michael Cho, Jim Steranko, Bernie Wrightson, Frank Miller, Tim Sale, Jock and Greg Capullo with a homage to Jerry Robinson’s cover of November 1942’s Detective Comics #69 by Bruce Timm.

This 96-page oversize collector’s edition issue will be available at comics retailers and digitally on March 27, 2019, for $9.99.
