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.
But we do have 3 pages from Detective Comics #1009 ahead of its EX-X-XCLUSIVE debut, courtesy of a Mysterious Benefactor, in which we find Alfred Pennyworth filing the closest thing possible to an HR complaint in the Batman organization…
Are you telling us that Waynetech hasn't bothered to create the DC Universe equivalent of the Apple calendar app? In any case, Batman isn't exactly a guy who takes criticism well…
And in response to Alfred's nagging, Batman is considering hiring a replacement… Ace the Bat-Hound?!
This isn't going to fly with the butlers union.
Detective Comics #1009 hits stores next Wednesday.

"Take Your Shot" begins! Deadshot has returned to Gotham City following a long stint with the Suicide Squad, and Batman fears that without the oversight of AmandaWaller, Floyd Lawton will go back to his old ways. Meanwhile, after taking Lex Luthor's offer, Mr. Freeze begins taking action to get exactly what he wants and killing anyone who stands in his way.
