Will DC Publish a Detective Comics #900?

Will DC Publish a Detective Comics #900

Dan Didio leaves a cryptic hint on his facebook.



Source: Dan Didio's Facebook

Over the weekend, amateur mathematician Brian O'Sullivan informed Dan Didio on his facebook that April 2013 will see the release of the 900th issue of Detective Comics and recommended to Didio that DC release a milestone anniversary issue.

Dan Didio responded that he was already aware of the upcoming milestone, but refused to elaborate further. 

This raises the question as to whether DC will do away with the "New 52" numbering, which it first instituted when rebooting their continuity.  Could it be that after a whopping eighteen months of holding true to their new numbering scheme, we'll see DC discard it in order to take advantage of a cheap gimmick that will bring in a temporary spike of sales?

My theory: No.  DC, who published Before Watchmen and a month of "#0" comics, would never, ever, ever engage in such cheap tactics.

Detective Comics #900 will more than likely be released in April.

Drop the numbering altogether and move a calendar schedule.

"Dec 2012" is all I need to know it's the most recent issue (and it's falls right in place behind Nov 2012).

For real. I stopped caring about numbering a long time ago. I've accepted that everything will have a new #1 every couple years.

Give us a really great anniversay issue. Like when he teammed with Elongated Man and Sherlock Holmes. And maybe bring back some creators that could tell a story without raping and killing the entire cast.

I wonder if they'll do something special for Detective Comics #27

I'm sure it will be awful, but I feel like that's a good time for a sales gimmick.

On the plus side all those creators have moved over to Marvel and are working on "Avengers Arena" :P
