First look at Jim Lee’s variant cover for Detective Comics #27

2014 is a big year for the Bat, marking the 75th anniversary of the Dark Knight Detective, and DC Entertainment will be marking the occasion with a special 96-page issue of Detective Comics, which just so happens to have reached the very same issue number as Batman’s first appearance way back in 1939. Detective Comics #27 is set to feature an all-star roster of creative talent; we’ve already seen a variant cover from Frank Miller, and now it’s the turn of Jim Lee…

DC Entertainment presents this mega-sized issue featuring an all-star roster of Batman creators past and present!
Don’t miss a modern-day retelling of The Dark Knight’s origin by the incredible team of writer Brad Meltzer and artist Bryan Hitch! Plus, all-new stories by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy, Peter J. Tomasi and Guillem March, Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen, Gregg Hurwitz and Neal Adams, new art by legendary Batman writer/artist Frank Miller and more!

Also in this issue, John Layman and Jason Fabok kick off the new storyline “GOTHTOPIA”! It’s a bright, shiny, happy place where dreams come true…as long as you don’t look at things too closely.


Detective Comics #27 is on sale from January 8th.
