Forbidden Planet has a new retailer exclusive cover from Brian Bolland for Batman: The Detective #1 by Tom Taylor and Andy Kubert, coming in three versions.
Set in London, the cover chooses to feature the Liver Building in Liverpool, one of three buildings next to each other known as the Three Graces, and recently used for filming in the forthcoming Batman movie which made the national press. The cover is also a reference to Brian Bolland's own Batman #445 cover, set in Moscow.
What are the odds that the Forbidden Planet store that will sell the most copies will be in Liverpool. Might even help that Tom Taylor is a massive Liverpool FC fan.
The comic goes on sale on the 14th of April – the same week that comic stores in England will be able to fully open up again. Handy that. And Forbidden Planet will be using the exclusive cover variant as part of their promotions for the Liverpool's Forbidden Planet reopening.
