DC Comics Announces New Supernatural Comic Gotham By Midnight
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.12.2014

Blastr reports that DC Comics has announced a new comic called Gotham by Midnight, which was set in the supernatural side of Gotham. It involves the Gotham City Police Department creates the Midnight Shift to investigate the various monsters and creatures that inhabit Gotham. The team is led by Detective Jim Corrigan.

The comic will debut on November 26. It will be written by Ray Fawkes (Constantine, Batman Eternal) with art by Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Ten Grand). It is a spin-off of Batman Eternal but will not be related to it. Batman will occasionally appear but he will mostly show up to work with Corrigan. Here are highlights of an interview with Fawkes:

On if Gotham by Midnight is more horror, supernatural of gothic: "I would say it's more horror, but it's all three of those things. It has a very gothic, melancholy feel to it. There are a lot of stories that will be more supernatural than horror, but when you get down to the core of it, the things these characters face and the decisions they have to make are the kinds of things you'd see in a really great horror story."

On if The Spectre will show up: "Jim Corrigan's terrible secret is he carries the divine judgment of God around in his body, not of his own free will. So he's better motivated than anybody to get involved whenever a big, supernatural monster shows up on the scene. 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. "

On why Gotham was chosen: "Gotham City is a pretty sick place, and also a wonderful place, one of the greatest cities in the DC Universe. The tack that some of the characters in this book take is that people like the Joker, Two-Face and Batman may be symptoms of something wrong with Gotham, and that may have a supernatural root. For me, the city is very Gothic, dark and shadowy, and it's sort of the perfect setting for things that creep in the night."
