AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #45: “DARK MARVEL” VARIANT by DOALY
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!
A few days ago I shared the variant covers that span the years that “Action Comics” has been on the stands. These clever editions took a decade each to showcase the adventures of Superman, the Man Of Steel. Hopefully you saw that post and if not, just click HERE for the overview. You’re going to need this when you visit your local comic book retailer next month when issue #1000 hits the stands. In addition to those variants, many of the retailers will have their own exclusive editions and I’ve secured a stockpile of images for you to peruse. I’ve named the retailer and the artist involved in the variant cover and I’ve started with the two popular comic retail giants of our own Metropolis and then the rest are in alphabetical order. Check it out.
Welcome back my friends to the posts that never seemed to end about the 2014 edition of NY Comic Con. You have safely arrived at the second chapter of our Day Four coverage and I am afraid that this is our very last from the adventures. I’ll admit that I am slightly slagged today after three days at Con already along with three Metal concerts on top of them but here I am just the same looking to bring you some visuals that I hope spark your interest. Let’s get on down to it with this Cosplay of a character I didn’t know offhand and thought was The Scourge from Marvel Comics. It was not.
