ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — The Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary won’t be hiding in the shadows of the night.

DC Entertainment will mark the milestone for Batman next spring with a weekly comic book, “Batman Eternal,” written by Scott Snyder and others and art by Jason Fabok.

The publisher also said today, ahead of the start of the annual New York Comic Con, that it will release an anniversary edition of “Detective Comics” No. 27 in honor of Bruce Wayne’s first appearance in May 1939.

The Bob Kane and Bill Finger-created character’s origin will get a “modern-day retelling” in the 104-page issue by Brad Meltzer and Bryan Hitch, along with stories and art from Frank Miller, Neal Adams, Mike Allred, Paul Dini, Sean Murphy and others.

The issue is out Jan. 8.
