Detective Comics 1000

May 1, 2019

We got there in the end. Despite supposedly finishing at issue No 881 in October 2011 I’ve finally got a copy of Detective Comics No 1000 in my hands. As usual it’s been issued with multiple (far too many) variant covers. Detective Comics No 1 appeared cover dated March 1937 although Batman’s first appearance within its pages was No 27 cover dated May 1939. Action Comics No 1 (featuring Superman) was cover dated  June 1938 and yet it still reached issue 1000 almost a year before Detective Comics did. Welcome to the wacky world of comics.

I just wish the contents were more like this particular “homage to the 1950s” variant cover.
