How great was the first Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III issue of DETECTIVE COMICS? Wonderful characterization, beautiful, mind-blowing art and a frightening new villain in Gotham. Well, there’s more.
Michael Siglain here. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m one of the editors here at DC. More specifically, I’m one of the Bat-editors, and am currently responsible for Detective Comics, Outsiders, Batgirl, Vigilante and Booster Gold, among other comic book greatness. I’m here today to give you a peek behind the editorial iron curtain, so get ready to feast your eyes...
Seems like people like Gotham's newest citizen, huh?
DETECTIVE COMICS #854, by writer Greg Rucka and artist J.H. Williams III, has sold and is going back to press for a new, second printing. As most of you know, DETECTIVE COMICS also features a snazzy co-feature by Rucka, with art by Cully Hamner.
And though you probably don't need any added incentive to check out the book, we've still got the mind-blowing new printing cover by Mr. Williams and Dave Stewart right here. Enjoy.
You just saw the first four pages from DETECTIVE COMICS #853 over at IGN, but why stop there? It's Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling novelist, winner of more awards than we can list and one of the true trailblazing creators in the industry. Artist extraordinaire Andy Kubert. Batman. Here, for your continued reading pleasure, are two more pages from the issue -- which concludes the two-part "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" story -- picking up where IGN left off.
Batwoman isn't the only lady trying to fill the void left by Batman's disappearance in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS -- Rene Montoya, i.e. The Question, joins the series as an ongoing co-feature starting this June in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS #854, from writer Greg Rucka and artist Cully Hamner. Until now, we've only seen a few of Cully's design sketches. But we've got a few inked pages to show off his work right here.
