Detective 875Detective Comics #875
Written by Scott Snyder
Art and Colors by Francesco Francavilla
Lettering by Jared K. Fletcher
DC Comics
Release Date: March 30, 2011

Scott Snyder has been teamed up with two of the most consistently amazing artists on his recent run on Detective Comics. Initially, before DC drew the line at $2.99, the outline for Detective Comics was set for Jock to do the art for the main, featured story, and for Francesco Francavilla to have backup feature duties while Snyder wrote both. The main story was to focus on Gotham City’s new Batman, Dick Grayson, while the backup was to focus on Gotham’s favorite Police Commissioner, James Gordon. The stories were set to intertwine and change places in positioning ever once in a while, but it was always going to try to keep them together.

Since January, however, the limited page count has forced the stories apart, and I, for one, could not be happier. In the instance of Detective Comics, it has given us the ability to see a completely focused story from Snyder and, in the case of Detective Comics #875, Francesco Francavilla, and oh what magic they work.

Detective Comics #873
Writer: Scott Snyder
Artist: Jock
DC Comics
Price: $2.99
Release Date: January 26, 2011

One of the best storylines going on in comics today, The Black Mirror, wraps up in this week’s Detective Comics #873. I’ve been a fan of almost every single Detective Comics story for quite some time now, although there definitely have been shifts in style/quality of storytelling, but what Scott Snyder and Jock, with Francesco Francavilla (albeit not on this issue), have been doing with their recent run on Detective is easily the best storyline since Greg Rucka’s Batwoman story arc, and it’s one of the best ongoing series right now.

This issue continues directly after Detective #872 when Dick Grayson was undercover at a less than scrupulous auction called Mirror House, in which artifacts from some of the most nefarious villains of Gotham City are sold at outlandish prices to “bored rich people.” It shows a growing darkness within Gotham City though the fact that the people who were there to purchase these items were not criminals that were just collecting tools of the trade, but that it was the socialites of Gotham City. Mothers, fathers, daughters, and sons are the ones who are interested in collecting these items, and I am sure that we will see more of this in future stories.

DC’s ‘Detective Comics’ Recharges with New Writer/Art Team

On Monday, DC Comics announced which artist will join new writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire) for their namesake series, Detective Comics.

Starting in November, artist Jock (The Losers, Green Arrow: Year One, and a recent stint on Detective with Greg Rucka) will join Snyder on one of DC’s biggest titles. Snyder has been getting rave reviews for his Vertigo series American Vampire, and DC must certainly be very pleased with Snyder’s success to be handing over the reins to this series to him after a relatively short time in the business. Jock also brings a very unique style to the book and while I may be a fan of his style, I’m curious to see if others are as excited about him taking over the series.

But this isn’t the only news announced this week. On Friday, DC also announced that artist Francesco Francavilla (Zorro, Garrison) will be drawing a back up feature in Detective Comics, also written by Snyder.
