Exclusive Preview of Gotham City: Year One!
Never before seen: The first few pages of the new book--with art by Phil Hester!
Well this is going to be fun.
As I’m sure I’ve said too many times and will soon say too many more times: the great and powerful Phil Hester I have a new limited series coming out in a few weeks—Gotham City: Year One. It features brilliant colors and letters by my old friends (and fellow members of team Vision) Jordie Bellaire and Clayton Cowles, and here for the first time, I get to show you some pages!
As background, this book is the story of how Gotham went from being just another fine American city to being GOTHAM CITY—the home of sin and monsters and Batman. In 1961 Slam Bradley, who first appeared in Detective Comics #1, investigates the horrible kidnapping of the Princess of Gotham, Helen Wayne, the daughter of Bruce’s grandparents, Richard and Constance Wayne.
It is a dark and cool and fun noir full of insane twists and turns that will redefine the Batman mythos. If you you’re into Human Target or Supergirl or Strange Adventures, this is the book very much in that vein. And, on a personal level, I’ve had as much fun putting this book together as I have doing any other project. I’d write Bradley mysteries for the rest of my life if they’d let me.
But you don’t need me to hype this thing. It speaks for itself. Just look. Here for the first time ever are the first few pages of the series:
So…we’re going to have some fun aren’t we…
