Gotham by Midnight coming in November
Did you think Gotham Academy and Arkham Manor were weird books for DC to publish? Well, guess what? THEY'RE NOT DONE!
Just announced for November is the new horror/supernatural title Gotham by Midnight, by writer Ray Fawkes and artist Ben Templesmith. Starring Jim Corrigan (host of The Spectre), the series sounds a bit like Gotham Central, only SPOOOOOOKIER, as we'll be following the adventures of a group known as The Midnight Shift, who delve deep into the creepier corners of Gotham City.
So with Gotham by Midnight, Gotham Academy and Arkham Manor, we've got three new titles that are completely weird and out of left field considering what DC normally publishes. Who knows if these titles will catch on (I hope they do), but it's great that DC, or at least Mark Doyle, is really trying to move away from the typical middle-line house style of books which have plagued the New 52 with uninspired tedium.
