After 80 years, it's here-the 1,000th issue of DETECTIVE COMICS, the title that literally defines DC! This 96-page issue is stacked with an unbelievable lineup of talent that will take you on a journey through Batman's past, present and future...plus a sensational epilogue that features the first-ever DC Universe appearance of the deadly Arkham Knight! But who is under the mask? And why do they want Batman dead? The incredible future of Batman adventures begins here!

Good news and additional news. Good news:There's only one junker story in Detective Comics #1000, and give it an art switch and it would be better. You can find it for yourself. Additional news:If you only like one kind of Batman story, dark and dreary, your mileage may vary as there is a tone of sentiment running in a few of these.
Opinion is fact now, so here's the issue in order of goodness:
1. Geoff Johns/Kelley Jones 9 Grahams
2. Warren Ellis/Becky Cloonan 8 Grahams
3. Paul Dini/Dustin Nguyen 8 Grahams
4. Peter Tomasi/Doug Mahnke 8 Grahams (continuing in Detective Comics#1001
5.Brian Bendis/Alex Maleev 8 Grahams
6.Kevin Smith/Jim Lee 7 Grahams
7.Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo 7 Grahams
8.Tom King/Tony Daniel/Joelle Jones 5 Grahams
9.Denny O'Neil/Steve Epting 5 Grahams
10.Christopher Priest/Neal Adams 4 Grahams.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
