Surprisingly, Detective 27 contains no origin for Batman. In Detective Comics 33, the story of how Batman came to be is told for the very first time and includes the murder of his parents. This origin has become part of American culture which was later reprinted in Batman 1. Also of note is the unusual and infamous cover image, in which the Dark Knight is seen armed and dangerous, breaking the code against guns that was to become a cornerstone of the character's makeup over the years. A startling and classic image, from the beloved first year of the hero's adventures, rich with gothic shadows and crude, almost nightmarish graphics.
