DC To Launch New Supernatural Horror Series Gotham By Midnight
Aug 12, 2014
Detective Jim Corrigan returns in an all-new series by writer Ray Fawkes and artist Ben Templesmith called Gotham By Midnight.
Corrigan is in charge of a special unit of the Gotham City Police Department called the Midnight Shift. They are responsible for handling the supernatural cases haunting Gotham.
"Gotham By Midnight is going to be the scariest book in Gotham," said Ray Fawkes in an interview with DC All Access. "It's the book about stuff that Batman needs help to handle, the ghosts and monsters. The city's under a curse and Batman's not able to handle those guys, so this is a book about the other characters that Batman hands this stuff too."
Joining Corrigan on the Midnight Shift are his partner, Detective Lisa Drake, forensic investigator Dr. Szandor Tarr and religious consultant Sister Justine.
Jim Corrigan is also host to The Spectre and Fawkes talked about how that will play out in an interview with Blastr:
"If he doesn't do something, sooner or later the Spectre is going to handle it, and he has an Old Testament way of handling things. We will be seeing the Spectre here and there, but that's usually what happens when Corrigan messes up and doesn't get it handled in time."
Look for Gotham by Midnight #1 from DC Comics in the upcoming September PREVIEWS catalog on August 27th and at your local comic shop on November 26th!
