Just the other day DC announced that it was canceling all orders for a variant cover for the extra big sized DETECTIVE #27 by Frank Miller. Since
Miller hasn’t been seen around too much lately this wasn’t too surprising, but since the book had already gone through FOC, it was a pain for retailers who had already ordered it:
In a new update on Detective Comics #27, DC Entertainment has announced that the Frank Miller Cover for this special issue has been reinstated as Cover B. (Chris Burnham cover shown here.)
This remains an open-to-buy cover under item code ￼OCT138238; all previous orders have been restored. It is scheduled to arrive in stores on January 8.
Please Note: This will be a wraparound cover.
Feeling like detectives ourselves, we reached out to DC for any further explanation but they declined to comment.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
As mentioned, the above Miler-esque cover is by Chris Burnham.
