Welcome back to the podcast! We have been covering comic movies that had been coming out over the last few weeks that we had to put this review on the back burner.
There is a 1 week delay before the next big comic movie (more on that next week) so this week we review a landmark comic event – the publication of the 2nd comic to hit 1000 issues!! The comic that gave DC it’s name – Detective Comics had it’s #1000 issue published a few weeks ago and we go over it in this week’s podcast.
Here are a few of the many variant covers. Starting in the upper left corner going clockwise: Alex Ross, Paul Dini, Frank Miller and Brian Bolland.
Similar to Action Comics #1000, the comic is a celebration of Batman and his extended family. The oversized comic has multiple stories by Batman writers past and present like Scott Snyder, Tom King, Dennis O’Neil, Warren Ellis, current scribe Peter Tomasi and more! We review some of our favorite stories from this issue.
This is also a great jumping on point for any new readers that have never read a Batman story before. The stories review Bruce Wayne/Batman’s past and his relationship with the Bat Family and villains. The comic ends with the introduction of a brand new villain, The Arkham Knight.
We highly recommend you pick this up.
Your comics pal,
