DETECTIVE COMICS 1 by tonysdaniel DETECTIVE COMICS 1 by tonysdaniel
The cover for Detective Comics #1. I slide over from Batman to Detective Comics this September. A great honor to helm the writing and art duties of DC's flagship title.

Inks by Ryan Winn, colors by Tomeu Morey. This book will be my best to date.

This cover has it all. Texture especially in the cape is amazing, the way the blacks form not only mass but life. This cover shows the half brained lunacy of the Joker and a Batman ready to beat it back. Cool stuff.

I just saw this drawing on the last comics I bought, I love your version of the Joker. Your drawings are amazing, many details and so on. Awesome work.
Can't wait for next issue !

I've always loved how you draw the Joker's lips

mr daniel theres soething thats been bugging me lately first of all let me say i really love your run on detective comics but my question is does it take place in the present day like the other batman titles or does it take place 5 years in the past like justice league and action comics im asking you this because an interview you had with usa today says it does take place 5 years in the past but you said yourself on your online blog that usa today goofed and that it indeed takes place in the present time i would like it if you could reconfirm this since the majority of people seem to believe what usa today said

Amazing collaborative effort !
I'm still very confused by the notion DCnU but this artwork is very good nonetheless

I can only hope one day I draw Batman and Joker this good. Joker looks a lot like Jim Lee's really nasty, creepy version.

Once again pure awesome. Got overwhelmed when i saw the amount of bat titles and a bit confused, are the current batman issues that you do still on-going?

The cover looks amazing Tony! It must be a fantastic feeling to be part of such an important event and work on one of their flagship titles too at he same time. Looking fwd to it Tony!

Welp, that's possibly the most disturbing depiction of the Joker I've seen to date.

Looks great :)
