A decade-by-decade celebration…
One of the coolest parts of DC’s Action Comics #1000 celebration was the issue’s decade-by-decade variant covers by some of the industry’s top talents.
Naturally, Detective Comics #1000 — due in March — is following suit.
Check these out:
Some terrific work there, though the 1960s one looks nothing like the 1960s, which is too bad.
Other than that, it’s a solid selection.
DC also announced the creative teams for the various stories in the issue, including:
— Kevin Smith and Jim Lee
— Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev
— Warren Ellis and Becky Cloonan
— Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen
— Denny O’Neil and Steve Epting (a sequel to O’Neil’s 1976 classic There’s No Hope in Crime Alley!)
— Christopher Priest and Neal Adams
— Geoff Johns and Kelley Jones
— Tom King, Tony Daniel and Joëlle Jones
— Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
— James Tynion IV and Alvaro Martinez
As previously noted, the issue will also feature the in-continuity debut of the video-game character Arkham Knight, for those who are into such things.
