“Gothtopia” Preview Art  (Unlettered)

DC has released one page of interior art from Detective Comics #27

Little is known about the next Bat-event/cross-over called “Gothtopia” which kicks off in January.  DC is remaining tight-lipped although they will occasionally offer a tease or two, no doubt to build anticipation.  The January solicits and covers offered some hints although the cover to Detective Comics #29 (March) may have the biggest possible spoiler.

Yesterday, DC posted a preview of one page from Detective Comics #27, part 1 of “Gothtopia”, along with another teaser:
 
This is a very different version of Gotham City than the one readers might be used to. Here, Gotham is devoid of all crime and is the safest city on Earth. And while Bruce Wayne is still Batman, not all is as it seems with the Dark Knight. So when Batman’s one-time allies start to turn on him, who are the true heroes? Is this an alternate reality? Or something far worse?
 

They also revealed some of the “Gothtopia” code-names of Gotham’s heroes: Flying Fox (Batwing), Gothamite (Talon), and Wings Of Truth (Birds Of Prey). 
 
“Gothtopia” will run through Detective Comics, Catwoman, Birds Of Prey, Batgirl and Batwing from January through March when it concludes in Detective Comics #29.
 
The mega-sized Detective Comics #27, by John Layman and Jason Fabok goes on sale January 8, 2014, and also includes  stories by Brad Meltzer,Gregg Hurwitz, Peter J. Tomasi, Mike Barr, and Scott Snyder; with art by Bryan Hitch, Neal Adams, Ian Bertram, Francesco Francavilla, Guillem March, and Sean Murphy.

About the Author - IvCNuB4


IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
