Detective Comics #27 Will Be A Special Anniversary Edition Featuring Frank Miller, Paul Dini, Neal Adams And More

The original issue #27 of Detective Comics was the first comic book to feature Batman – so with 2014 being the 75th anniversary of the iconic character, it only makes sense that DC will celebrate the second coming of this key issue with a special anniversary edition.

The 100 page comic will feature work from a number of creators including Frank Miller, Scott Snyder, Paul Dini, Neal Adams, Francesco Francavilla, Sean Murphy and more.

There will also be a story from the new creative team who’ll be taking over Detective Comics – Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.

The issue will be released on January 15, 2013 and will have a number of variant covers from artists including Jim Lee, Mike Allred, Kelley Jones, Patrick Gleeson and Chris Burnham.
