Dick Grayson looks into the ‘Black Mirror’ in Detective Comics #871

DC Comics has posted:

Somehow, tools, evidence and weapons relating to some of Batman’s deadliest foes are ending up in the wrong hands – and people are dying because of it.

Newly ensconced Batman Dick Grayson must piece together the pieces of the mystery, which point to a deadly new adversary. But will he be able to bring down his new enemy before more die?

Writer Scott Snyder, the co-creator of THE NEW YORK TIMES-bestselling AMERICAN VAMPIRE (which just got a very nice writeup in the ASSOCIATED PRESS, featuring an interview with the legendary Stephen King) joins forces with artist and LOSERS co-creator Jock to kick off “Black Mirror,” the creative team’s first arc on DETECTIVE COMICS – and it’s as on target as you can imagine. This issue puts the emphasis on the “detective” part of the book’s title, putting Grayson a few steps behind a new adversary while lives hang in the balance. For more hints, swing by USA TODAY, which featured a first look at the series along with some comments from Snyder.

But that’s not all. The issue also features Snyder and artist Francesco Francavilla’s COMMISSIONER GORDON co-feature, which brings a haunting ghost from Gordon’s past screaming into his present. Creepy, chilling and must-read stuff.

DETECTIVE COMICS #871 hits tomorrow.
