Best thing about this issue. This abysmal, asinine, and utterly pointless arc is finally over. The next one should be better because the bar has been basically placed on the ground.

This book states that Batman is incapable of emotion and that scares him, more so than anything else. Being incapable of love due his vow is his biggest fear; too bad we’ve seen him feel so strongly he esc more

We finally learned what Batman's greatest fear was and boy I am so glad this is last issue of the story arc. More interested in the Bane and Thomas Wayne stuff which still feels out of characteristic for Thomas to be doing this. It looks more like they are either equal partners or in Thomas's mind he's actually in control.

They share writing credits, and I’d imagine he would have to be familiar with the characters involved in the crossover, or at least know what the other author was doing, if he planned to use them in his story.

If he didn’t write Thomas, he should have done his research about his character.

To be honest, I expected more. yes, we got some answers to what "Knightmares" was all about and we finally got to see Thomas again so there's a story progression, but the issue still left me unsatisfied. I wanted to see Batman actually breaking through the dreams to face Scarecrow or his father but instead I got to see Bruce explaining more

This time King uses a dance to tell the readers what's happening and push us forward to the story. Something that I like is that for the first time in a long time, We can see Batman actually reasoning and evaluating his situation like a detective would do, in fact he's thet world's greatest detective, so is good for me to see a thinking Batman, more or less.

I don't know how to feel about this issue. On one hand, things did indeed happen. On the other hand, most of the revelations were not revelations at all for this reader. On some mutated third hand, I'm glad that this Bat/Cat relationship seems dead as Batman admits to himself that it was never love.

Awful issue. Does King ever research the characters he is writing or does he just force his story on them? I’d say the latter.
The nightmares Bruce is having, turn out to be a fear gas illusion indeed as it was mentioned some issues ago. However two things are really wrong here: Normally Batman can only overcome the fear gas by either facing his fears or enduring them until the fear gas we more

Alfred & Damian are all characters that he really loves. heck! it's Tomasi that is responsible for pushing DC to bring back Damian. he told me so himself, when i asked him about it at a convention. great guy BTW.

I am very conflicted here. the reason is - I liked most of the comic. I did, really. And you know why? Because it was fun, contrary to regular King's Batman comics.

This is a weird issue. It's all a dream, but it plays like it's a memory of one night.

Basically, Lois and Selina go to the Fortress of Solitude to have a girl's night out/bachelorette party.

The art is fun and nice. The hi-jinks are meant to be fun, and I can't say they're terrible, but they are sort of a 1980s thing. The jokey vibe doesn't fit with King's dour Batman.

Kelley Jones art yes, but the story itself not really.

With all the hype I think Detective Comics 1000 was rather disappointing. It is great to see some older artists& writers like Denny O‘ Neil, Kelley Jones or Dustin Nguyen back, but it would have been better if DC hired artists like Paul Gulacy or writers like Doug Moench, Chuck Dixon or Alan Grant. Instead we are getting mostly stories of regular modern writers like Tom King, Geoff Johns, Snyde more

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 Kni...

i like your idea so much more than what we actually got. if this is the best set of writers that DC had to offer, then they're in a lot of trouble.

Yeah I think DC should put more effort in it. But many stories nowadays feel like they don’t.

Meh. I wasn't expecting much from this and that's about what I got. Going through each and every story would take time I'd rather not devote to this, but needless to say, this felt very much like one of the 80 Page Giants. And I really don't like those because the quality is never consistent. Anthologies in general suffer from this, but I would expect everyone to bring their A game to a big issue more

THIS WAS NOT WORTH the $9.99!!!
all that hype for nothing!

i had such high hopes for this landmark issue, but it was truly disappointing.
nice art, but the writing was either Bad or just 'Meh'.
very standard and uninspired.

New52's Detective comics #27 was much better than this.
