After 80 years, it's here-the one thousandth issue of DETECTIVE COMICS, the title that literally defines DC! This 96-page issue is stacked with an unbelievable lineup of talent that will take you on a journey through Batman's past, present and future...plus a sensation epilogue that features the first-ever DC Universe appearance of the deadly Arkham Knight! But who is under the mask? And why do they want Batman dead? The incredible future of Batman adventures begins here! When DC relaunched Batman with Rebirth, they brought on a writer who truly made the series his - Tom King! Tom's run is incredible, and he will write 100 issues of Batman before leaving the book, and he's past the halfway point! But how could you have Detective #1000 without having a Tom King story? And why not celebrate the 80th Anniversary Celebration on Detective with our Elite Gold Signature Series! FINAL COVER MAY VARY. ALLOCATIONS MAY OCCUR.
