DETECTIVE COMICS #1047 delivers CHAPTER 1 of “THE TOWER”, a bold new story arc that encompasses the entire BAT-FAMILY and reinvents ARKHAM ASYLUM as we know it… a must-read!

Third Eye Faithful: we love a GREAT Batman story, and very much in the vein of classics like NO MAN’S LAND, ARKHAM ASYLUM A SERIOUS ON HOUSE ON SERIOUS EARTH, CATACLYSM, and many other very dark, very epic takes on THE DARK KNIGHT — THE TOWER is shaping up to be just that!

The 12-part weekly Detective Comics event starts here. Arkham Asylum has fallen, and in its place, Arkham Tower has risen in the heart of the city, a pitch made by the mysterious Dr. Wear.

Unlike the Asylum, Dr. Wear promises his methods and drug treatments will heal Gotham’s criminally inclined for good—a claim that skeptics like Deb Donovan and the Bat-Family don’t believe.

There’s something wrong with the tower, with Dr. Wear’s methods—and with Batman away from Gotham City, the rest of the Bat-Family is going to find out what…but not before everything explodes.

Written by critically acclaimed author Mariko Tamaki, continuing her incredible Detective Comics run, and drawn by DC Comics legend Ivan Reis! Backup: “House of Gotham” begins!

For a long time two houses have overlooked Gotham City, beckoning its broken: Wayne Manor and Arkham Asylum. In this epic 12-part backup story, writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Fernando Blanco will explore the impact that Batman and Arkham Asylum have had on the city…through the eyes of a boy whose life was changed forever by The Joker one dreadful night early in the Dark Knight’s career!

Bylines in Blood is a gritty new detective story about seeking the truth against all odds!

The future. The very concept of truth has died. Politicians invent their own facts, and independent newspapers no longer exist. In this world, private detectives serve as ronin, searching out the hard truths that people are desperate to keep hidden.

The best of these is Satya, known as Lady Dick, a former journalist turned gumshoe who runs every lead to ground. But Satya has just received her hardest case yet: her old editor has been murdered. Someone wanted him silenced, and the trail points toward the highest bastions of power. To find jus-tice for her friend, she’ll have to put everything – and everyone – she knows at risk.

A prophetic neo-noir thriller with unexpected twists at every turn, THE CLARION is co-created by Ringo Award nominated writer Erica Schultz (M3, Forgotten Home, Strange Tails) and comic writer and for-mer newspaper crime reporter Van Jensen (Two Dead, Cryptocracy, Superman: Man of Tomorrow), aided and abetted by Spanish art sensation Aneke (DC Comics Bombshells, Legenderry: Red Sonja).
