Ram V & Rafael Albuquerque Taking Over Detective Comics


This July, a new ongoing creative team is taking over the storied Detective Comics, with writer Ram V (Catwoman, The Many Deaths of Laila Starr) and artist Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire, Superman/Batman).


Starting with Detective Comics #1062, on sale July 26, Batman finds himself in a strange, dark Gotham City as he’s pulled into a high Gothic story like nothing he’s seen, or heard, before.



The story starts with “Gotham Nocturne” part 1 of 4: “Overture.” Something is terribly wrong with Batman. No matter the tests Bruce takes, nor the numbers he counts, the greatest detective in the world can’t pin down the source of this creeping dread—of his own inner demons and a looming mortality. He’s not alone in the grips of this terror, as it seems real demons are creeping through the shadows of Gotham City, answering the clarion call of a strange melody that’s haunting Gotham…and seems to be turning its denizens into something else.


The curtains are rising on a new, terrifying mystery as Batman tries to figure out what’s happening to both the city he protects and his own mind in this lush, operatic mystery.


Occasional Bleeding Fool contributor Wes Daugherity of Thinking Critical is encouraged by this announcement had the following to say.
