A lot of good stuff here, but less cohesive than I might have liked, with a lot of talented creators doing fun stuff that feels a lot like a movie trailer or a series of unrelated vignettes. I liked it better than Action #1000, though.Matthew's Thoughts
Just a great issue! Some of the best Batman artist’s and storytellers come together to celebrate Detective Comics #1000. Totally worth the $10.Stephen's Thoughts
