Detective Comics #1027 - Celebrating the 1000? Appearance of Batman

Once again, DC proving that their math is not the best, they are releasing an extravagant Detective Comics #1027 to celebrate the 1000th appearance of Batman on the book. In reality, this would be the 1003rd appearance as there was a #0 and #1,000,000 issue, but if we went by the numbering starting with issue #27, this would still be the 1001st appearance of him on the book.

I'll be posting the variant covers in this thread as they become available

Re: Detective Comics #1027 - Celebrating the 1000? Appearance of Batman

The wording on the promotional material above says "Celebrating 1000 issues since the Dark Knight's first appearance". Since he first appeared in Detective Comics #27, than 1,000 issues since that appearance would be #1027. That is of course if we are ignoring the goofy numbered issues like 0, -1, 1,000,000, etc. Technically #1026 likely wouldn't be his 1,000 appearance because I'm sure Batman, the Bruce Wayne version, didn't appear in every issue. I haven't read the issues so I'm not 100% positive, but there was the time when Batman broke his back and Azrael took over, so Bruce Wayne's batman was not in them. I'm sure there are others as well where it may have been some other character that was featured in the issue in place of Batman/Bruce Wayne. Maybe the one issue with Batwoman on the cover or some that featured only Dick Grayson, etc.

Issue 1027 would still be 1001 issues since his first appearance if we took out the #0 and the other ones like the million issue. They did the same back on issue #627, so the math has been funky since back then

Since everyone knows that Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27, they're celebrating the 1000th issue with #1027 because #1026 wouldn't look right to most people.

Yes, people are that dense.

If he first appeared in issue #27, 1,000 issues after that would be #1027. 27+1000=1027. So the 1,000 issues would be #'s 28-1027. Those are the issues that have come out since #27.
If we do 1,001 issues since his first appearance, we would have 27+1001=1028

This is ignoring the goofy numbered issues and just counting the regular numbered issues.

Some are marking it as the 1000th appearance, which even if we went with #1026, it wouldn't be correct because there were some issues like the ones in the #850's-860's that featured Batwoman and Batman never made an appearance. (again ignoring the goofy numbered issues)

Honestly, I was more psyched when it hit #1000.

Me too. This is a complete cash grab, but I'm a sucker for these type of books too. Great covers, great art, fun stories.

And to throw another thought in the mix of we count all the other titles and crossovers etc then 1000 was a long long time ago.

I just think it's cool that one long-running title wasn't reset to Issue #1.

Every long-running DC and Marvel title has been renumbered at this point.

DC scuttled everything with that "New 52" thing and restarted everything with a new #1.

Uncanny X-Men was Marvel's last hold-out, IIRC.

I think that Spawn, of all things, is currently the longest-running title without a renumbering.

If we count UK comics, than Beano is the longest without renumbering it is over #4000 as of 2019.

144 pages for $9.99 isn't bad these days.

I've never seen Bermejo (my favorite working artist) do Nightwing. Not bad. Definitely seems more lightweight and suitable for a gymnast than those awful Arkham suits, that take a similar approach.
