Also announced today by DC is the news that issue #27 of Detective Comics will be a special anniversary edition, and will feature work from a number of creators including Frank Miller, Scott Snyder, Paul Dini, Neal Adams, Francesco Francavilla, Sean Murphy and more.
There will also be a story from the new creative team who’ll be taking over Detective Comics – Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.
So before we go any further, let me just announce that I will be trademarking the word BATMANAPUL.
Out in January, the issue will be over 100 pages long and will feature variant covers from artists including Jim Lee, Mike Allred, Kelley Jones, Patrick Gleeson and Chris Burnham.
The original issue #27 of Detective Comics was the first comic to feature Batman – so with 2014 being the 75th anniversary of the character, it appears this will be the first of several celebratory issues from DC over the course of the year, most likely.
