Third Eye Faithful, there’s some things in comics that are just plain special, and one of those things is the legacy of DETECTIVE COMICS.
Detective Comics did something pretty darn special: it introduced us to what is easily comics most popular character of all-time (yes, we’ll even say he beats the Man of Steel) — BATMAN!
And, when a comic this important hits its landmark 1000th issue… well, you know damn well, Third Eye Faithful, that we’ve got to do a TON of major stuff to help celebrate that fact!
So, not only have we put together an epic day-long celebration for the release of DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 on Wednesday 3/27/19, but we’ve also put together a very special MIDNIGHT release event for DETECTIVE #1000 on Tuesday 3/26/19, so you can be one of the very first to get your copy of DETECTIVE and dig into what is arguably the biggest thing to hit BATMAN in 2019!

Collect ALL the DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 covers at Third Eye with our special pre-order bundles!
