DETECTIVE COMICS #1000...
As everyone and their granny will know, DETECTIVE COMICS reached its 1000th issue recently, celebrating 80 years of The BATMAN. I ordered the BERNIE WRIGHTSON variant cover, but I was unaware until now that ALEX ROSS had also illustrated one, a homage to BOB KANE's cover to the mag's 27th issue in which Batman first appeared. It's currently demanding huge prices on ebay, the highest I've seen so far being £381.98, but I don't think I'll bother. I'll wait until the hardcover deluxe version which will include all the variant covers (33 I think) comes out and buy that instead. I haven't yet read there'll be such a release, but they did it with the 1000th issue of ACTION COMICS so there's bound to be one (I hope).
Did you buy this ish, Criv-ites? If so, what cover did you plump for - and why?
And below is my Wrightson issue, which arrived this morning. Great, innit?
