Detective Comics Celebrates #950 this February
It’s a major milestone for Detective Comics this February when issue #950 hits the shelves. From the first appearance of the World’s Greatest Detective until now, the past and present are united in one of the greatest, and longest lasting comic books in history. A love letter to your favorite Caped Crusader, Detective Comics #950 is an extra-large issue filled with Batman Family action and will serve as a prologue to an exciting new story arc, “League of Shadows,” which begins late February from writer James Tynion IV.
The lead story puts Cassandra Cain in sharp focus, setting the stage for the next epic spring storyline, “The League of Shadows,” with art by the phenomenal Marcio Takara. There are a lot of questions left unanswered about Orphan—her past, her mind and her silence. They’re going to start answering them here, and opening up a whole new world of questions that will open up all sorts of new, exciting stories.
But that wasn’t enough. This issue celebrates this landmark with the artists who have defined the Rebirth run of Detective…all in the same single issue, for the first time. There’s a Batwing/Azrael story by Alvaro Martinez and Raul Fernandez, which really introduces Jean-Paul Valley into the fold of the series, setting the stage for some tremendous threats emerging from his past…and a third story by Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira that’s so secret DC can’t even hint at what you might find in it. It is a short that sets the stage for the next year of Batman stories, not just in Detective, but for the entire line.
Detective Comics #950 is out February 8th.
