Cover for Detective Comics #872 by Jock

OK, yes, I put up a cover for Daredevil: Reborn yesterday, and you all know I'm an unabashed fan of the man's work, but today, Jock released the cover for Detective Comics #872, his work with Scott Snyder, and… well, just look at it.


  1. Batman’s gonna start tagging?

  2. It looks…real.

  3. Oh GOD this is good looking.

    I really am looking forward to trying out Detective when Snyder and Jock come on it.

  4. Mr. Freeman?

  5. I’m so there. Crowbar!

  6. I wish I could add something deep and/or meaningful, but all I’ve got to say is "WOW!"

  7. Holy Sandbat!
    Watch out for the crowbar!

  8. Oh my. When is this out? This is going on the wall…

  9. My desktop has been nothing but a Batman portfolio for a few weeks now. Not complaining, just saying.

  10. Holy gas mask Batman!

  11. Beautiful.

  12. @Jessie Totally inappropriate!

  13. Holy shit…..Wow I mean…..god that’s beautiful.

  14. holy shit, this looks sweet. that man is an artistic idol of mine, that’s for sure. one day i gotta get a piece of his. him and canete are the two visually most interesting artists in comics today. well, and darwyn, because he just rocks.

    but what’s with the crowbars lately? wasn’t there enough "death in the family" allusions recently?

  15. more Jock is a good thing! umm, yeah

  16. Pretty!

  17. That’s gorgeous.

  18. Awesome

  19. Is it just me or is the top of the headphone, there a guy opening a door carrying something inside to Batman’s head, maybe it’s Alfred? Am I hallucinating? Help! lol

  20. Hoo-boy, gonna be awe-sooooome…

    When do I jump back on ‘detective?’

  23. PymSlap (@alaska_nebraska) says:

    What book do I read to follow J.H. Williams & Batwoman?

  24. @pymslap – "Batwoman." There’s a preview in November and then the new ongoing starts in February. 

  25. That’s one big ol’ Keanu Reeves/Neo 

    "WHOA…" this illustration just garnered from me

    Looks fantastic!!! 😀
