Interesting. I assumed they would cancel her book while Tom King's Batman/Catwoman maxiseries is running.

Then again, I have no idea when that will be solicited.

Comics' Best Storytellers Honor Batman in Detective Comics #1027!

DETECTIVE COMICS #1027 CELEBRATES THE LEGACY OF BATMAN!

144-Page Issue Honors Batman’s first appearance in Detective Comics #27


Quote:
Light the Bat-signal, because Detective Comics #1027 is headed your way this September 15! In honor of Batman’s first appearance in Detective Comics #27 on March 30, 1939, this special 144-page celebration is poised to truly spotlight the “Detective” in Detective Comics. Batman and his allies will have a mountain of mysteries to solve, taking them from the seediest corners of Gotham City to the farthest reaches of the DC universe, plus a few early hints at what’s in store for the future of the Caped Crusader!

A book of this magnitude deserves the best storytellers in comics and a must-read lineup of DC’s most prolific writers and artists are rising to meet the challenge, including 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!”

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.

Detective Comics #1027 arrives at open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers beginning Tuesday, September 15, 2020. This must-have collectible sells for $9.99.

Yeah, I'll get it and probably enjoy it. I just find it funny that they add an anniversary they already celebrated (DC #1000) to another they already celebrated (the 80th of Batman's premier) and just invent another.

Seems like Punchline might be getting her own book.

The tweet the article cites seems to have been deleted as I saw it earlier in the morning but now can't find it.

GET A FREE COMMEMORATIVE PLAYING CARD WITH EACH ISSUE OF BATMAN: THE THREE JOKERS!

In celebration of the highly anticipated Batman: The Three Jokers prestige miniseries, DC and participating comic book stores are dealing fans the ultimate wild card by offering a free with purchase souvenir playing card for each of the three issues of the series, while supplies last.

Featuring breathtaking new artwork by series artist Jason Fabok, each issue of the Geoff Johns-penned series will feature a different card, spotlighting the Clown Prince of Crime and his three major adversaries – Batman, Batgirl and Jason Todd.

Batman: The Three Jokers reexamines the myth of who, or what The Joker is, and what’s at the heart of not just his eternal struggle with Batman, but how his horrific treatment of Barbara Gordon and Jason Todd has affected them. Arriving at open and operating comic book stores on Tuesday, August 25, the series will carry DC’s “Black Label” content descriptor, identifying the series a appropriate for readers 17+.

Thoughts on Three Jokers? Other than the padding (raccoon/trucking sequence was unnecessarily long), I was pretty pleased with it. Excellent art and colors, though the writing was up and down (Bullock was awful, most everything else was either fair or great).

^It read (and looked) well. I was intrigued to get to the end and to read the next issue, but Johns’ retcons (i.e. the title concept) irk me some.
I don’t know that I like the idea that the Joker who shot Barbara isn’t the Joker who killed Jason and isn’t (presumably) the original. That said, I’m conflicted, because I did love what Jason did.

I'm actually reading a little Batman these days. It was only a matter of time... LOL

With everything going on in and around Joker War, it looks to me like they're setting up another anti-hero similar to Jason Todd with this new Clownhunter kid. And I dig it, especially if Three Jokers leads into what was teased from the first and second issue with Jason Todd.

And I dig the metallic Batman suit from Batman #100. It's a nice change, but I'll bet money now that it's the suit Luke Fox will eventually wear as Batman when that happens.

But for F***'S SAKE... can we just get Batman Inc back on it's feet? There's getting to be too many side-characters for Gotham alone and there's nearly enough for 2 heroes for every neighborhood. Just off of the top of my head...

Batman, Nightwing, Batgirl/Oracle, Robin, Red Hood, Spoiler, Orphan, Drake/Red Robin, Batwoman, Batwing, Harley Quinn, Huntress, Clownhunter, Signal [can we just call him Lark already?], Azrael, and that's not including other notable allies of Bats like Black Canary, the Outsiders, and other Batman Inc squad members.

AND SPEAKING OF NEW HEROES!?!?!

Thoughts on Ghost Maker? Another rival of Bruce's in the martial arts scene, I think he's got a cool look [sorta like a character from Destiny so I'm game] but at first glance he reminds me of the Ducard/Nobody character from a few years back. And I'm getting burnt out on enemies with swords.

While I enjoyed both Dark Designs and most of Joker War, I have to say the final issue was a disappointment.

Punchline should either be dead or in Blackgate, not under fucking house arrest. Clownhunter being alive I could tolerate better if he at least privately resolved to go to Leslie Thompkins without the "WHEN I'M DONE!" bullshit quip. Harley should have shot to kill like she promised she would (way to undermine yourself there).

I'll check out the forthcoming issues to see if Ghost-Maker is any good but if I'm not thrilled then I'm dropping it. Which would be a shame because I was very satisfied with the previous material that Tynion was putting out.

Yeah, that was a bit of a stretch.

I think they should follow up with an issue where Batman finds the kid was shot to death by Joker gang guys and found with one of his guns in his hand showing that Batman left him defenseless when he disabled his weapons.

No, that would be twisting the knife merely for the sake of it. Clownhunter should have been one of those "walking the line but it's difficult and growing more so" characters after Batman told him to seek counseling, where we can get an exploration of his psyche as he struggles with his thirst for vengeance with others genuinely trying to help him understand he's only worsening things in the long run for a short-term benefit. Angst and drama it might be, but it would be better than thumbing his nose like a little jerk.

Read Dark Multiverse: Hush.

I actually rather enjoyed it.

Art was very good, story was solid and covered a lot of the different angles of the Bat-verse. It even made Batman somewhat scary (I feel sorry for Alfred in that setting).

I dunno how many of the others I'll pick up (WW: War of the Gods probably, maybe even Judas Contract, but I doubt many or if any other than that).
