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.
About The Issue: After 80 years, it’s here—the 1,000th 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 sensational 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!
The Press Release:
DC Entertainment celebrates 1000 issues of Action Comics with an all-star lineup of top talent as they pay tribute to the comic that started it all! Now, DC unveils the art for seven out of the eight variant covers, each designed to reflect a decade in the history of the Man of Steel! (I’ve started this presentation with the main cover for this particular issue for good measure – The variants will follow down after that one).

Now that the monthly solicitations have been shared from the Marvel Comics side of the fence, its time to share the news about one of the exciting events happening in a few months – I’m speaking of course of the 700th issue of that star-spangled Avenger Captain America. Check out the press release below.
The Press Release:
This spring, OUT OF TIME will culminate with the release of CAPTAIN AMERICA’s milestone 700th issue, concluding the arc in an oversized story from creators Mark Waid and Chris Samnee!
Frozen in time, awakened in a decimated future and once again a man out of his era, there is only one way for Steve Rogers to restore order and rebuild civilization—and that’s to rule it as King Captain America!
“No dream, no hoax, no lie, this IS Cap and this IS happening!” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Guest-starring the Thing and the Hulk (or as much as is left of them), it’s a celebration of 700 issues of star-spangled adventure! Plus, Mark Waid delivers an untold tale from Captain America’s past, featuring the classic artwork of Jack Kirby!” Continue reading Marvel’s Captain America Reaches a Milestone With 700th Issue!→
Yesterday, New York City hosted the Big Apple Comic Con over at the Penn Plaza Pavilion and this fun-filled comic book convention is the brainchild of the one and only Mike Carbo. I spent a few hours at the Con shooting photos of both the vendors and the wonderfully creative cosplayers and here is a batch of my visuals. Enjoy. I’ll start off my presentation with a few pics of the great Neal Adams who had a large number of tables downstairs on the lower level. It’s always great to see Neal and the family.
Hello readers and welcome back to the continuing presentations from my recent visit to the NY Comic Con of 2013; I am still hard at work delivering all the wondrous findings and visuals from the second day of the convention and if you are just joining us on the program, please know that I have broken down my images into fifty per posting. Let’s get a move on shall we….
I don’t really like starting off a chapter with a Cosplay that I do not immediately recognize but the Manga stuff is too hard to follow. This young lady had an impressive battle stance and hence gets the honor just the same.
