The Plot Thickens! ...MAYBE?! I don't know!

Come one, come all to the Gotham Spoilers Twitter Stalking Conspiracy Club! Grab your tin foil hats, boys and girls, and let's get weird!

Last night's theory saw me coming down from the ledge and having hope for Catwoman yet! Does any of that mean anything? I don't know. Maybe, maybe not. But today, things did get more interesting, with this tweet from Detective Comics writer John Layman.

Now, because DC has made a certain kind of stank lately, I initially took that to mean something it doesn't, and I'm sure you can guess what, but I digress! Why is this something?

Well, it means that Layman was at the DC offices in New York, like Seeley was. Layman also wrote the Catwoman Zero Year issue, but has made note that he's pretty content with writing only two books (the other being Chew, which is fucking fantastic). So one could assume that Layman was talking Detective. Now, based on past tweets from guys like Scott Snyder, Mike Marts, etc. every now and then there seems to be meetings between editorial offices that handle a group of books (like Batman) and creators. HMM... See where I'm going?

I mean... if I'm right in thinking Seeley was at DC to discuss a possible project, with knowledge that at least one other Batman group writer was there, I'd make a bet Gotham is on the table. Perhaps some discussion of what happens in Catwoman #25 potentially having an effect on the book going forward?

Look... I realize I'm about this close to grabbing some weed, cool ranch doritos, and telling you all about how Abe Lincoln was an alien that's being kept in Area 51, but I might actually be on to something here... and If I'm right, you can bet your ass I'm going to flaunt this. I'm basically making this for public record.

I'm having too much fun with this, to be honest. If anyone involved see's this and tells me I'm way off base, I'm going to be really bummed. It'll be like telling a four year old Santa isn't real.
