AAHH! Say it ain’t so! Thanks to our good friends at DC, we recently received a preview for Detective Comics #934, the very first issue of Detective Comics in the new, pleasantly refreshed and brazenly unashamed DC REBIRTH universe. Besides its new direction and REBIRTH designation, Detective Comics #934 also marks a return to the legendary series’ original numbering. Yep, it’s been around a good long while and believe it or not, that’s a good thing; it’s not the sales-stifling, marketing nightmare implying inaccessibility through swollen history, it’s a testament to continuity and a celebration of legacy. So, Detective Comics is here, and with it a bold new entry into the infinite Batman narrative. The Dark Knight’s latest mystery? Well, it appears there’s someone who looks very much like him, a violent “twin” beating the holy hell out of dangerous threats and, unfortunately, Batman’s trusted allies. Check out the following finished, interior pages below!
According to the official press release-
