THERE IS HOPE

Check this out, as Mr Nguyen confirms that he's creating new Lil Gotham online comics



And check out the promo picture!

(no title)

“This has been a passion project of mine for some time now, and for anyone that’s followed my work, I’m sure it’s more of an ‘its about time!’ explained Dustin Nguyen. “The look and style is a slight departure from my usual (think the exact opposite of serious), but the idea has always been the same—to take our favorite existing Gotham characters, place them in fun scenarios without having to be tied to just one continuity or look and feel. It’s basically a Batman book for fans, by two huge fans.”

Derek Fridolfs shares his collaborator’s sentiment. “At times in various platforms, Batman has been extremely dark and taken very seriously,” he elaborated. “So respectfully, we’re going in the opposite direction and having a bit of whimsical fun with a whole city of characters beloved by fans and especially ourselves. Li’l size...big enjoyment.”


So, from the sound of it, think an alternate take on The Black Cat's Holidays in the DCUverse series, and there are MUCH worse templates than that! :)

Someone must have been distracting Didio from this one really well in the DC offices. I wouldn't be surprised if, like, we suddenly heard news of a Steph-starring story being pulled and the guy shoves his obnoxious face out there on the internets again going "GWWARRFKFDLKKLFLFDTHATWASNEVERMEANTTOHAPPEN - NEVER MEANT TO HAPPEN - NEVER MEANT TO HAPPENNNNNNNNN! BARBARA GORDONNN FOREVERRRR YOOOO!'

But as it is, this is a totally pleasant surprise. I liked the Lil' Gotham backups they did before, so this - combined with the fact Nguyen's doing his sweet watercolours on interiors, and hey, Steph! - is going to make this really sweet.

So is this a proper digital comic that you have to pay for, or is it more like a webcomic sort of thing? I've seen some of this stuff but am not really clear on what is it beyond amazing.

They're doing initial digital releases, which will later be printed and sold. :)

Yup. Given it's 99c for each digital issue, though, I'm basically going to just do what I did with Ame-Comi Duela Dent and break my 'no digital' rule.

This is the best thing DC has done in the last 2 years.

I see Colin. This is AMAZING!

I want to get happy like everyone else. But I can't.

I think Didio has gotten my soul already, I'm expecting Stephanie to disappear from there any day now...

I both really want to support this and really don't want to give DC any of my money any more. :/

Actually, Killer Croc has shown to have a crush on Ivy in John Francis Moore's Batman: Poison Ivy from '97. A doctor tells Batman that the two formed a rapport during a group therapy session.

This rapport is actually brought up again in Hush of all places, with Croc putting trust in Ivy to split the ransom money with him, a decision which ends of biting him in the ass.

And there's also the fact that they've both corresponded with Swamp Thing at one time or another, with Croc actually living with Swampy for awhile in Louisiana, and the connection to the Green and Ivy and Swampy share.

So, yeah, there are far more connections between the two than most people think.

So... we have Cass and Steph, and Tim is being Robin and wearing a not-horrible costume, among other things? Oh, I'm definitely gonna have to look into buying this.

So, starting from Batman clockwise,
- Batman (Bruce Wayne)
- Huntress (Helena Wayne/Bertinelli)
- Oracle (Barbara Gordon)
- Redheaded woman
- Nightwing (Dick Grayson)
- Commissioner James Gordon
- Teekl
- Klarion the Witchboy
- Bane
- Batgirl IV (Stephanie Brown)
- Robin III (Tim Drake)
- Robin V (Damien Wayne)
- Red Hood (Jason Todd)
- The Question (Renee Montoya)
- The Carpenter (Jenna Duffy)
- Harley Quinn (Harleen Quinzel)
- Catwoman (Selina Kyle)
- The Joker
- Guy with guitar, mohawk, and wings
- Poison Ivy (Pamela Isley)
- Hush (Thomas Elliot)
- Killer Croc (Waylon Jones)
- Riddler (Edward Nigma)
- Man-Bat ("Kirk" Langstrom)
- Clayface I (Basil Karlo)
- Scarecrow (Jonathan Crane)
- Alfred Pennyworth
- Two-Face (Harvey Dent)
- Mr. Freeze (Victor Fries)
- Mad Hatter (Jervis Tetch)
- Zatanna Zatara
- Batwoman (Kate Kane)
- Black Bat (Cassandra Cain)
And then center:
- The Penguin (Oswald Cobblepot)
- The Ventriloquist and Scarface (Arnold Wesker)
- Victor Zsasz

Very surprised that something so lighthearted is including Zsasz.

Only ones I can't figure out are the woman next to Huntress (Black Canary?) and the man serenading Ivy.

Also not too terribly sure about my Renee Montoya guess right under Jason Todd.

Can't wait!

Babs is Oracle again, YAY! (Though I don't see why she should stay in the wheelchair.)
And Steph is Batgirl again, FRACK YEAH!

SO EXCITED!!
If this comic is even half as good as this picture hints, it'll be the best comic DC's put out since the reboot.

Also, to those who are interested in Bat-fan-work that continues the DCU as though new 52 didn't happen; look up Bruce Has a Problem.

The initial premise may sound like a turn-off, but the writers of this round robin fic manage to make it work brilliantly.
