"Batman: Li’l Gotham"

“Batman: Li’l Gotham”

 

The duo tells more playful stories of the characters connected to Batman.  They are holiday-themed, concerning a particular holiday per issue.  As mentioned before, it started as a digital special. But since this April, printed single issues have been available for those that prefer a physical copy. The seventh issue will be on shelves on Wednesday, Oct. 9.

 

Nguyen’s art is a refreshing break to all the rest of the gritty Batman stories in other comics.  He hand-painted all the covers and interior art using watercolors.  Both he and Fridolfs worked on the writing, though Fridolfs is also a professional artist like Nguyen.  The two have a massive arsenal of characters to use, but it seems they have a preference of using the older designs and costumes (before the 2011 DC universe reboot.)  As they bring out new installments, a bit of nostalgia comes with it.  It deserves the “E” rating since it is a comic for anyone and everyone that enjoys fun adventures of their favorite Gotham citizens. Visit dccomics.com or your local comic vendor for more information.
