DC Comics has announced a new series following in the footsteps of “DC Comics Bombshells” by bringing another of DC’s statue lines into its own comic series. DC’s line of 9” Gotham City Garage statues will be adapted into “Gotham City Garage,” written by “Grayson” writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing and drawn by Rebirth’s “Supergirl” artist Brian Ching.
“‘Gotham City Garage’ is an anti-fascist anthem for the open road, starring reimagined takes on DC’s greatest female characters through an Outlaw lens. 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,” explained Kelly.
“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,” reads DC Comics description. “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.”
Lanzing added that, “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.”
The digital first series will debut August 16 with issues shipping biweekly through October and weekly after that. The series will also rotate artists and is set to include Brian Ching and, recent graduate of the DC Talent Workshop, Lynne Yoshii.
