Detective Comics #27 on Batman Day, which falls on July 23rd, the day before San Diego Comic-Con begins.

I hope WB will sell the timeline as a poster. That would be cool after it gets laminated.

[frick]ing awesome @McGee

Hell yeah! Bill Finger finally gets the credit he deserves! I know Kane made up the name but without Finger we would have gotten THIS which wouldn't have even made it past the 1st issue!

I would have loved to see something done in comic book-form of something like an epilogue for Nolan's trilogy focusing on Robin John Blake as the new Batman, dealing with the aftermath of all sorts of things…99%-ers still believing in Bane's cause(who were not aware of the League of Shadows' true intentions), Commissioner Gordon finally being booted and a new Commissioner coming into the scene, Joker and Scarecrow making comebacks, et cetera. Would've been awesome to see something like this being made for the 75th anniversary.

I got excited because I thought it WAS the original Detective #27 reprinted... but it's the remake from earlier this year that I already bought.
But crediting Bill Finger? Finally!
