In this action-packed adventure set in the universe of The Resistance, Gregg Hurwitz (Legends of the Dark Knight, Vengeance of Moon Knight), Mark Texeira (Ghost Rider, Wolverine), and Brian Reber (X-Men: Legacy, Spider-Man/Deadpool) introduce a masked vigilante for the 21st Century. Bob RyDee is a hapless bureaucrat whose bad luck streak comes to a crescendo when he accidentally kills the city’s masked vigilante, The Knight. Oops. Now, Bob is forced to take on the mantle of the legendary hero before the city descends into chaos. Good thing he’s got The Knight’s former butler/assistant to show him the ropes.

Review: Detective Comics #27

detective comics 27 coveredBatman is one of the most iconic superheroes of all time. He made is landmark first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. The incredible influence of The Dark Knight has transformed the comics industry through the decades, and Batman is just as relevant and beloved by fans today as he was when he was firs introduced 75 years ago.

To kick off the celebration of his 75th year, DC Comics assembled an all-star roster of writers and artists to contribute to this special issue of the latest volume’s Detective Comics #27 that clocks in at almost 100 pages.

The issue is a celebration of the character and spans the past, present and future giving us many looks at the character throughout the ages and it’s all very solid. With so many different creators and so many different styles, you’d expect some variance in quality, but here everything is a great read.

The issue also kicks off John Layman and Jason Fabok’s new storyline for the series Gothtopia. It’s a bright, shiny, happy place where dreams come true… as long as you don’t look at things too closely. This first part of the story is a little odd in the fact that we were presented with so many different versions of Batman, at first I thought this was just a different version. After a while I caught on and it’s a cool story so far that has me wanting to check it out further, though maybe not the many tie-ins.

Overall, the issue is a celebration and comes off as such with an amazing line-up of creators. You can see why  he’s so popular and with so many versions shown of him, he really is a character that can fit any age and time. This is a definite buy for fans of Batman and worth checking out if you just want to dive in and check him out.

NYCC 2013: DC Announces Weekly Batman Eternal and Detective Comics #27 Details

DTC_Cv27Launching next spring, Batman Eternal is an all-new weekly series that comes to you from “showrunner” and Batman writer, Scott Snyder, along with writers James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, and Tim Seeley, and artist Jason Fabok.

Snyder in a release gave some details about Batman Eternal will “set the stage for a new Gotham and new characters and a new set of stories that will take Batman into 2015.

We want this to be a place where you get to tell a story about anything you want in Gotham, so long as we’re also moving this big story forward in the background. You’ll see bombastic arcs as well but there’ll be plenty of room for Ray to explore some of the darker, more mystical aspects of Gotham that he loves or Tim to explore some of the crime we haven’t seen before. We’re five guys doing our best to give you an exciting Gotham that’s changing under the feet of its characters.

But Batman Eternal is not the only Batman news revealed this morning. DC Comics also announced that next year’s Detective Comics #27 will be a mega-sized anniversary spectacular! Spanning 104 pages, Detective Comics #27 serves as an homage to the original Detective Comics #27, which marked Batman’s comic debut in 1939, and features an all-star roster of Batman creators past and present!

In stores January 8, the issue includes a modern-day retelling of the Dark Knight’s origin by the incredible team of writer Brad Meltzer and artist Bryan Hitch! Plus, all-new stories by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy, Peter J. Tomasi and Guillem March, Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen, Gregg Hurwitz and Neal Adams, new art by legendary Batman writer/artist Frank Miller, and more! This issue – which will include variant covers by Neal Adams, Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, Chris Burnham, Kelley Jones, Patrick Gleason and Mike Allred – also includes John Layman and Jason Fabok’s final storyline, “Gothtopia,” before the new creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato take over writing duties for the series in the spring.

Manupal said about their plans:

We want to bring him closer to his roots and be more of a street-level type of hero. His superheroics will still be present, but the investigative part of Batman will be at the forefront …We’ve always written stories about hope, and it will be very interesting to see what comes out when we walk through the sullen streets of Gotham City.

Buccellato added:

Stylistically, we will use the tools in our toolbox to capture what we think the Bat-universe looks and feels like. Gotham won’t look like Central City, so you won’t be seeing all the bright reds, oranges and yellows that defined Flash’s world.
