Alpha Comics Spotlight


Detective Comics 1000

Leading into Batman’s big 80th celebration, DC announced the World’s Greatest Detective is being honored with two milestone book releases available now at Alpha Comics & Games.  DETECTIVE COMICS: 80 YEARS OF BATMAN THE DELUXE EDITION is a spectacular oversize hardcover book, and DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 is a collector’s edition of the 1,000th issue of the periodical comic that launched the high-flying adventures of the world’s most popular Super Hero. 

Since his debut in DETECTIVE COMICS #27 in March 1939, Batman has been the most popular DC Super Hero in the world, resulting in repeated waves of pop culture “Bat-mania” for many generations of fans. Whether known as the Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader or simply Batman, his appeal is global, and he has headlined comic books consistently since  1940, representing thousands of comics titles that have regularly been  industry best-sellers no matter the comic book era.

“The enduring popularity of Batman over the past 80 years speaks to  the character’s multi-generational appeal,” said DC Publishers Jim Lee  and Dan DiDio. “We’re proud to celebrate Batman’s cultural impact with these special releases and look forward to a year of commemorating this milestone anniversary with fans across the globe.”

These two special publishing exclusives are now available at Alpha Comics & Games and are certain to become collector’s items as part of DC’s yearlong  plans to honor 80 years of Batman storytelling.
