The New 52 not only broughtdetective a whole new take on DC characters, but newly renumbered books. That’s not as big a deal for some comics, but it leaves longtime readers of Detective and Action Comics from reaching an unheard of #900 issue.  DC will be marking what would have been a milestone achievements for both books this year by offering up special giant-sized stories. First up is Detective in April. Detective #19 will feature a celebration that is a little on the nose. The 80 page issue will feature Batman tackling the “Mystery of the 900.” Since #900 won’t be plastered on the cover, they’ll jam the big number in the story.
