We are gearing up for possibly the most iconic issue in DC history… oh, let’s say it. In COMIC BOOK history. We’re celebrating 80 years of Batman and 1,000 issues of Detective Comics!
No matter what you say about comic books and superheroes, Batman is the beacon that lights up their sky! And this is the celebration of all comic book celebrations: An EXCLUSIVE DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 GIVEAWAY!!
Previously in DC Comics…
When Action Comics hit the big 1000, DC brought together its favorite artists to produce a range of variant covers. Some of the variant covers were offered exclusively at various stores as part of their celebrations. And while I was lucky enough to do my happy dance at Kings Comics with a signed Nicola Scott/Annette Kwok cover, I knew there were many fans around the world who were missing out.
I swore the next time would be different.
Batman Looks Good For 80
Nicola Scott is doing it again. Nicola has teamed up with Annette, DC Comics, and Kings Comics to produce another gorgeous variant cover to celebrate 1000 issues of the Batman. Just like Superman’s cover, Batman gets to show off his most memorable costumes from over his 80-year history. It’s a great tribute to the long history. This special variant cover is available exclusively to Kings Comics.
… And one lucky GeekMom reader.
That’s right, folks! The team at Kings Comics have generously offered up ONE (1) SIGNED COPY of the Nicola Scott/Annette Kwok variant cover for Detective Comics #1000. This includes postage worldwide.
Competition is now CLOSED.
Thanks to everyone who entered. The Winner is Denise M. from Burbank, California (USA)!!
Pre-Orders Are Open
If you missed out on the competition, you can still pre-order the exclusive variant cover directly from Kings Comics–they even have special pre-order discounts available. Detective Comics #1000 is available for AUD$29.95 / USD$22 (plus postage). Or you can by both Detective Comics #1000 AND Action Comics #1000 (Exclusive Nicola Scott Var Ed) for AUD $57.95 / USD $42 (plus postage).

Psst!! I heard whispers of a matching Wonder Woman picture, available on Nicola’s personal art website. Let’s see who scores the trifecta: https://www.nicolascottart.com/
I said I couldn’t do the fellas without completing the Trinity so just for fun here’s a tease of my (never going to happen) Sensation cover. pic.twitter.com/5Q1Qzt0rOl
