This March, comic book history will be made as “Detective Comics” reaches its milestone 1000th issue. As you all know, this is the title that gave us “The Batman” way back in May of 1939 and before I get into the cover visuals, I wanted to share that classic issue with you all. Remember, Batman didn’t appear in the first issue of that comic but instead in its 27th.

Marvel Announces “Captain America” #1 (Coming July 2018)

Here’s the scoop on the just announced “Captain America” title. Marvel’s Sentinel Of Liberty is going to reach 700 issues for his currently running title soon enough and I am guessing we shall also see him in action on the big screen once more when “Avengers: Infinity War” opens this April.

New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this July with CAPT AIN AMERICA #1!

“I think it’s a really exciting time to be writing Captain America right now,” said Coates. “The country is in an interesting place, and I look forward to inhabiting Steve Rogers’ character – this guy who has been a sort of awkward fit for the world, out of time as people say. I hope fans are excited to see something different, and I think there are some really compelling villains old school Captain America fans and Marvel fans will be familiar with.”
