Detective Comics 2022 Annual #1 Review


Written by: Ram V
Art by: Christopher Mitten, Rafael Albuquerque, Hayden Sherman
Colors by: Lee Loughridge
Letters by: Deron Bennett
Cover art by: Evan Cagle
Cover price: $5.99
Release date: November 29, 2022

Detective Comics 2022 Annual spins a yarn of the early days of Gotham (called Gothame) and the machinations of predators vying for power.

Is It Good?

Ehh...Detective Comics 2022 Annual would have been better placed as an Elseworlds story. As a continuation of Ram V's never-ending setup to his first Act in the ongoing Detective Comics, it somewhat makes sense in some spots and doesn't make sense in others.
