Batman to Replace Alfred With Canine Labor? Detective Comics #1009 [Preview]

Detective Comics #1009 hits stores next week, by Peter Tomasi and Christian Duce. And over the next few days, DC Comics will provide EX-X-XCLUSIVE previews of Detective Comics and all their other comics to compliant media partner websites. Bleeding Cool, unfortunately, is neither compliant nor a partner. Some might argue we’re hardly even media.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
