Detective Comics #1027 from DC Comics, to be published on September 15th will make for a sequel of sorts to Detective Comics #1000. Famously Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939 and now its a thousand issues later.
A special 144-page $10 issue will attempt to highlight the "Detective" in Detective Comics as Batman and his allies will have seven times the space to fill with mysteries to solve, taking them from the seediest corners of Gotham City to the farthest reaches of the DC universe, as well a few early hints at what's in store for Batman's future.
Creative teams for Detective Comics #1027 will include creative teams Greg Rucka/Eduardo Risso, Grant Morrison/Chris Burnham, Tom King/Walt Simonson, James Tynion IV/Riley Rossmo, Peter J. Tomasi/Brad Walker, Dan Jurgens, Marv Wolfman/Emanuela Lupacchino and Bill Sienkiewicz, Brian Michael Bendis/David Marquez, Mariko Tamaki/Dan Mora, Scott Snyder/Ivan Reis, Kelly Sue DeConnick/John Romita Jr and Klaus Janson, and Matt Fraction/Chip Zdarsky.
"Detective #1027 has been a massive undertaking, and I'm really excited for fans to see what editors Paul Kaminski and Dave Wielgosz have in store come September," said Ben Abernathy, Batman Group Editor. "A great combination of writers and artists are putting in their best work on the book and fans should pay close attention to these stories, since some of them will plant the seeds for both Batman's future and that of the DC universe. Which stories? You'll have to wait until September 15 to find out!"
No mention of John Ridley so no 5G Batman then…
Detective Comics #1027 also includes "tribute" art from fan-favorite artists, including José Luis García-López, Jamal Campbell, Lee Bermejo and Jorge Jiménez, among others. An extensive variant cover program is planned for this landmark issue, including a series of ten variants spotlighting both friends and foes of Batman, and an extensive program of retailer-exclusive variant covers.
