Every day until the start of Comic-Con, we’re bringing you something cool to help you count down the days to the start of the big show. Last week we debuted our new Comic-Con print ads. For this week, we reached out to some of our favorite writers and artists to ask them what they enjoy most about San Diego Comic-Con.
This fall, JUSTICE LEAGUE #13 will introduce a legendary villain to DC COMICS-THE NEW 52: The Cheetah. The first of a two-issue chapter, the story comes to you from the creative team of writer Geoff Johns and guest artist Tony S. Daniel.
The Joker has gone missing from Arkham Asylum, but not even Batman can comprehend the grisly evidence the notorious madman left behind. Something strange and terrible is happening in Gotham City, and it all seems to revolve around a new villain known as Dollmaker.
With anticipation for May’s “The Night of the Owls” crossover building across the extended Bat-family, DETECTIVE COMICS will also now be part of the greater battle for Gotham City. Written by Tony S. Daniel and illustrated by Daniel and Sandu Florea, the issue finds the sinister secret society targeting one of Gotham’s most iconic institutions. “In DETECTIVE #9, Batman finds himself in the unlikeliest of situations—saving Arkham Asylum administrator Jeremiah Arkham from a mysterious Talon assailant,” said Mike Marts, BATMAN Series editor.
DETECTIVE COMICS #5 will feature a one-shot back-up story, highlighting an alternate, gutter-level view of the Penguin’s plot against Gotham. Written by Tony S. Daniel (writer/artist of DETECTIVE COMICS) and drawn by Szymon Kudranski, the eight-page story will offer another perspective on the unfolding events of the series, tying back to DETECTIVE COMICS’ primary arc – and will also feature a surprise guest appearance by another Gotham regular.
DETECTIVE COMICS #1, by writer/artist Tony S. Daniel, will be going back to press for its fourth printing. This makes DETECTIVE COMICS the second title from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 to reach four printings, following JUSTICE LEAGUE.
Check out what the people saying about the series so far:
"Detective Comics is head-spinningly spectacular from top to bottom.” – MTV Geek

DETECTIVE COMICS #1, by Tony S. Daniel and Ryan Winn, and SWAMP THING #1, by Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette, two of the most critically acclaimed and fan adorned titles in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, are heading back to press for third printings.
DETECTIVE COMICS #1 and SWAMP THING #1 join the ranks of the previously announced ACTION COMICS #1, BATGIRL #1 and JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 as titles to receive third printings (JUSTICE LEAGUE is already in its fourth printing).
