Exclusive: DETECTIVE COMICS #28 Preview


by on February 3, 2014

Don’t let the phrase “Gothtopia” turn you off of Detective Comics #28; Batman isn’t going to start moping around, hanging around the mall food court, and sullenly listening to Sisters of Mercy and KMFDM. Rather, the Scarecrow has seized control of the city and is keeping everyone happy…well, sort of. Anyway, poor Bats is in the custody of some of his most sinister foes, and it’s not looking good for the Caped Crusader. Take a closer look at what’s in store this week in our exclusive preview of John Layman and Aaron Lopresti’s Detective Comics #28 from our friends at DC Comics.
