Everybody’s Talking about (the Already Sold out!) Issue 881 of DETECTIVE COMICS

Everybody’s Talking about (the Already Sold out!) Issue 881...

By David Hyde Thursday, August 11th, 2011
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the final issue of Scott Snyder’s run on DETECTIVE COMICS with artists Jock and Francesco Francavilla, well, you’re not the only one. Issue 881 is one of the best reviewed issues in recent memory. Witness: IGN gave the issue a 9.5 and noted, “When all is said and done, this creative team has delivered one of the greatest Batman epics I've ever read.” Josh Flanagan from iFANBOY declared issue #881 his Pick of the Week. COMIC BOOK RESOURCES called the run “historic.” COMIC VINE awarded the issue a perfect score of 5 out of 5 stars and called the issue “amazing.” And here’s what NEWSARAMA had to say… “Detective Comics #881 represents the culmination of the single greatest run of Detective Comics in decades. Perhaps of all time.” The issue went on sale yesterday and, like 880 before it, is already sold out. If you see a copy at your local comic book store, don’t hesitate. Just pick it up.
