More Detective Comics #1000 exclusive retailer variants popping out. To follow the ones we ran hereherehere and here.

Stanley 'Artgerm' Lau will be doing this cover for someone…

Lee Bermejo is doing this cover for Midtown Comics.

Or something very close to it. They say,

Featuring the Caped Crusader and his greatest foes in a masterful, iconic pose, Batman has never looked better. Pay attention to the intricate detailing of Batman's cape to find Catwoman, Joker, Two-Face, and Penguin hidden amongst the folds. Watch as dawn breaks behind the Dark Knight, highlighting an army of bats mid-flight. With angelic beauty, this piece has us floored and shows exactly what has made Batman such a legendary hero over his 80 year history.

We see the full cover by Lucio Parillo for Scorpion Comics.

And as for that Jay Anacleto cover fuss, Unknown Comics has this to say…

True inspiration behind our #detectivecomics1000 #detective1000from @jayanacletoart We wanted something different from the traditional. We went with an awesome photo shoot style cover with BATMAN and a few of the woman that are a part of his bat family. #truth #dontoverthinkit#batmanonthecover

More to come when we have them…
