Brian Bolland's Detective Comics 1000 cover

In a few weeks we will see the publication of Detective Comics 1000. With dozens of variant covers, per usual!

Brian Bolland's variant cover features a colorful look at Batman's rogues gallery. Bolland hasn't done much work lately, he's pretty much retired, but his skill is still tremendous. Does this cover seem somewhat familiar to you? It should.

It is based on an ad that Bolland did for Forbidden Planet, decades ago. It is quite a great store, I visited in London a few years ago.

The black and white version of this image was mocked up to resemble the ad.

The full image in black and white glory. Nuff Said!
