DC has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive first look at the solicitation text for Action Comics #987 and #988,and Detective Comics #965, and the standard covers for Action Comics #987 and Detective Comics #965.

The cover for Detective Comics is particularly interesting, as the image is an homage to George Perez's cover to Batman #441, the middle chapter to "A Lonely Place of Dying," the story arc in which Drake was introduced as the third Robin.

The upcoming Detective story is titled "A Lonely Place of Living," and sees Drake trying to decide between escaping Mr. Oz's prison or staying behind -- a decision made harder by a surprising revelation that fans will have to wait to fully grasp the gravity of.
