Detective Comics #1000, breaking new records every month on Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Back in 1937, National Allied Publlications brought out a new comic ostensibly about Detectives. Within a few years, they introduced the most acclaimed “Super” hero of all time in issue #27, the Batman, which was 80 years ago with a May cover date. The same year, the company’s founder started a second company called Detective Comics Inc, which soon purchased National, and  thereafter they introduced the famous “DC” “bullet”. Action Comics reached #1000 last year, on the 80th Anniversary of Superman’s First appearance, but it went weekly for a while to run the numbers up and move ahead. For Detective #1000, there is a ‘standard’ cover, one cover for each decade from the 30’s to the 2010’s, a sketch blank, and the special “Midnight Release” cover, making a total of 12. We also have Action #1009, Batgirl, Dial H for Hero #1 (do the kids know what “Dial” means?), Flash, Heroes in Crisis, Justice League Odyssey, Shazam, Terrifics, and Wonder Woman.

Marvel brought us Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers No Road, Black Panther, Black Widow, Daredevil, Dr Strange, Fantastic Four,  Hulkverines, Hulk #181 reprint, Invaders, Marvel Rising #1, Presents #3, Moon Girl, and Star Wars Dr Aphra, Vader and Adventures.

The rest of the world brought us Alien 3, Black Hammer, Duck Tales, Fight Club, Go-Bots, Invader Zim, Isola, Jim Henson Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, League of Ex. Gentlemen Tempest, Man Eaters, MMPR, Outcast, Rags #1 3rd prt, Sabrina Teenage Witch, Sharkey Bounty Hunter, Spawn, Rick & Morty, Umbrella Academy, and Transformers. 

Of course, the complete list is much longer –  Check it out below.  And Previews and all the attendant order forms are still here this week. I know there are many of you that ignore ahem follow this blog carefully, so I need to say that I lost 3 of the 5 images to go here and it’s just too late to start over on the last 2. Sorry to all of you, the thousands of faithful that read these words every week and what you do with it is a mystery to me.
