Why were they called Batman detective comics?
- 1 month agoFavorite Answer
The series was originally called Detective Comics, and it was an anthology series with crime and detective stories.
After Batman's debut in 1939's Issue #27, the comic refocused more on Batman and his supporting cast.
It is a similar case with Action Comics and Superman.

I think its because Batman was a detective first like inspector gadget, or dick tracy.
