Between The Continuity – The Week of Retroactives Continue


On November 22, 2012 the very first edition of Retroactive was published starring Detective Comics and Amazing Spider-Man. While Amazing Spider-Man wrapped up in October, Detective Comics has continued to play out…until this week that is. Detective Comics will come to a close with its 2013 covers and I can think of no better way to send it off then feature it in a bonus edition of Retroactive this week where it will be re-teamed with Amazing Spider-Man who will also feature its 2013 offerings as well.

So what is replacing Detective Comics? For the longest time that answer was going to be Batman but I’ve decided to take a little breather from such a lengthy series. Still I knew that I wanted to feature a Batman title so I thought of a perfect palette cleanser in the form of a “legendary” title, a title known as Legends of the Dark Knight. Look for its debut later on in the week.

On that note, this week’s offering of Between The Continuity has reached its end. I hope everyone has an excellent week and manages to read some great stuff. Until next time, I leave you with three words that sum up this blog and life in general:

  1. Excellent replacement. If you had chosen Batman, probably we would have been forced to comment a lot of campy covers, published in the era during which Bruce used to fight against some incredibly wacky villains. Luckily you decided otherwise. : )

    • After LOTDK runs its course I’ll see how I feel regarding the next step: Shadow of the Bat or Batman. I’m going to eventually cover both, it’s just which will come first…

  2. Excellent choice as a replacement. Legends of the Dark Knight is one of my fave series, I enjoyed every issue, and there were so many fantastic covers as well. Going to be great to revisit them again!
