Detective Comics #1001

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Penciler: Brad Walker
Inker: Andrew Hennessy
Colorist: Nathan Fairbairn
Letterer: Rob Leigh

I mentioned the finale of Detective Comics #1000, was little more than a teaser to bring casual readers back for issue #1001. Well, it must have worked, because here I am. Not exactly eager, but cautiously curious as only a long time non-Bat-reader can be.

The story opens with Commissioner Gordon making a phone call from a playground littered with hundreds of dead bats. The news doesn’t surprise Batman, as the same thing seems to have occurred in the Bat-Cave.

Ever since Hanna-Barbera penned the new deal to let DC play in their sandbox there have been a bunch of random, odd, crossover specials, just as there was with Looney Toons before this. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s usually weird. Some of the crossovers have used iterations of the Hanna-Barbera character that are appearing in their own reboot series, Like Johnny Quest and Space Ghost from the Future Quest series.
