Some of you may have remembered the DC Collectibles’ Gotham City Garage statutes. You know those DC Collectibles that cost a bit of money so you will never be able to get all of them. Apparently, those statues have inspired a new digital-first comic series from Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Grayson) and a rotating team of artists beginning with Brian Ching (Supergirl) and followed by Lynne Yoshii of the DC Talent Development Workshop, according to CBR.
“Gotham City Garage is an anti-fascist anthem for the open road, starring reimagined takes on DC’s great female characters through an outlaw lens,” Kelly said in a statement. “We’re bringing Big Barda, Steel, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Silver Banshee, Hawkgirl and the first Kryptonian this world has ever seen—the mysterious girl named Kara Gordon—into a world of bikes, outlaws and elaborate tattoos.”
“This is an exciting chance to explore the meaning of heroism in a world devoid of hope, to rebel-yell alongside our favorite DC superheroines at a time when we need it the most,” Lanzing added.
It’s been a decade since Governor Lex Luthor saved his people from devastation and turned Gotham City into the modern utopia known as The Garden. With the rest of the world in ruins, Luthor’s city continues to thrive—but not for everyone. Order has been kept only by the LEXES technology that networks the entire population under one mindset—and if a citizen steps out of line, the Bat and his minions are brutal in restoring the status quo. So when a young Kara Gordon comes under suspicion by her LEXES superiors, she heads straight into the dreaded wasteland—where she’ll discover the fierce oil-and-gear rebels of the Gotham City Garage.
Gotham City Garage will drop on August 16th with new chapters released on a bi-weekly basis through October and will then move right into a weekly release. Print copies of the comic will arrive in stores in October.
