Hoping to copy Marvel's strategy of double and triple shipping their top sellers, DC revealed that it would be publishing four issues of Detective Comics in September, each of which focusing on a different villain. Detective Comics #23.1 will focus on the Poison Ivy, Detective Comics #23.2 will feature Harley Quinn, Detective Comics #23.3 will star the Scarecrow and Detective Comics #23.4 will center on Man-Bat. Each book will have a different creative team, with Derek Fridolfs, Matt Kindt, Peter Tomasi and Frank Tieri writing one issue a piece.
Interestingly, all four covers features a chained Batman in the background. Feel free to insert a witty joke about chains and Batman in the comments, and we'll feature them in a later article. Like the rest of DC's books in September, each will have a special 3D cover which will jack the price up to $3.99.
Covers and solicits can be found over at CraveOnline, which can be reached at the link above.
