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 including the murder of his parents. The Dark Knight's tragic beginnings have embedded in American culture and become the archetype origin for countless characters that followed (hello Robin). Readers later enjoyed the reprinted story 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.
