EXCLUSIVE: Detective Comics #1006 Welcomes the Spectre Back to Gotham City

Detective Comics #1006 finds another of DC's heroes protecting the streets of Gotham, as Detective Jim Corrigan and his Spirit of Vengeance, the Spectre, find themselves embroiled in a mystery in Batman's city.

Though he was briefly reveals to be part of the DC Universe since it was rebooted in 2011's New 52 line-wide relaunch, the Spectre has been missing from the publisher's titles for much of the last eight years. Now, Peter J. Tomasi and Kyle Hotz bring the biblical hero back in a big way, though whether he truly has it out for the Dark Knight as the issue's cover indicates remains to be seen.
