Li’l Gotham Coming to DC Digital

Comics

DC Digital is offering some good stuff via their service. A new season of Smallville in comic form. Arrow as a digital comics. Batman, Superman and Justice League Beyond as well. They are pretty darn good and much cheaper than standarn physical copy comic releases. Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs are bringing a brighter more fun version of Batman to DC Digital with Li’l Gotham. It’s a great idea as Batman is a character who thrives in reinvention and different takes. I like the idea that in one book he is the urban legend character and in another it is more focused on his detective abilities. This will be a more tongue in cheek kind of take with Nguyen’s signature cartoonesque style attached. To see more of what Dustin does check out his official site and Deviant Art page at the links below.
