Artist Jim Lee has revealed his cover for issue 1000 of Detective Comics.
What’s in a Cover?
This is yet another great Lee-style Batman pose. Beyond that, it appears that Lee is evoking a more fun version of the Dark Knight. We see Batman with the Joker, Riddler, Killer Croc, and Scarecrow tied up in the Batcave. In the back, Alfred is serving post-fight snacks with Nightwing impishly snagging a cookie.
More interestingly, Lee’s art style seems more streamlined and has less cross-hatching. This maybe to invoke a more light-hearted tone for the comic.
Issue 1000 Creative Teams
Current creative team Peter Tomasi and Doug Mahnke are scheduled to deliver the main story for issue 1000. Additionally, other top comic creators will contribute to too. Among them are Geoff Johns, Brian Michael Bendis, Paul Dini, Neal Adams, Dustin Nguyen, Christopher Priest, Kelley Jones, and Alex Maleev.
The special anniversary issue boasts 96 pages of material.
Detective Comics #1000 will be released in March.
