New logo for “Detective Comics” revealed, along with a first look at “Batman: Last Knight on Earth”

Detective Comics #1000 may have debuted this week, but the celebration of Batman’s 80th birthday doesn’t stop there.  The party raged on during day one of WonderCon, and DC Comics brought plenty of Batman goodness to share. The biggest news was that, starting with issue 1001, Detective Comics will have a brand new title logo. It’s very retro, with shades of the old Batman and the Outsiders logo in there. After a few hours I can safely say I dig it, and can’t wait to see it on the title going forward.

In addition to unveiling the logo, DC also shared some preview pages from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman: Last Knight on Earth, which they’ve pitched as their last Batman story. It has a Batsuit made of a straitjacket and Joker’s head in some sort of lantern, so I think it’s safe to say that this will be a pretty straightforward story without any surprises whatsoever. Check it out below.

Stay tuned for more news from WonderCon as we hear it.
