My Overall Pick
Detective Comics #378. This is a cover that catches the reader’s attention almost immediately with this starling event taking place. The event? Robin punching Batman square on the jaw, a look of anger on his face, delivering a blow so powerful that it almost looks like it’s going to leap off the page. “Batman-Robin Split” is emblazoned on this newspaper article, an ominous prognostication that this isn’t simply a misunderstanding but the ending of a partnership that has stood the test of time. The Dynamic Duo is a duo no longer and it’s almost as if the environment itself can sense this status quo shift and has unleashed the rain to cement this tragic circumstance. But what caused this? Will they make up? This comic demands you to open it and find out for yourself!________________________________________________________

  1. Detective #476 with the Joker fish is another real big favourite of mine, really like this storyline as well, and the final battle here between Batman and the Joker is just stunning. Detective #478 featuring Clayface is a really spooky cover, with Batman finding the remains of one of Clayface’s victims. I always liked this version of Clayface best, the way he melted people into clay with a touch, it was really gruesome.

    • I agree that 476 is brilliant and creepy. I’ve never had the pleasure of reading it but it is my goal in life to eventually read every issue of Detective Comics ever produced. Quite a herculean task indeed. Thanks for sharing your favs! 🙂

      • #476 is one of my favorite issues, its brilliant. The final battle between Batman and the Joker in this issue, well its awesome! Well worth tracking down, stunning art at well 😀
