I have a toy/statue/action figure collecting problem. This does not help. Say hello to the newest line from DC Collectibles debuting at Toy Fair this weekend - a series based on Dustin Nguyen's fantastic Lil' Gotham comic series (mini-Joker!!!!!!). They'll also be putting out one of Batman and the Joker. Take a look at a short preview featuring those and other cool DC Collectibles on the way.
We had a chance to chat with Nguyen at New York Comic Con.
There aren't many comic book titles currently on the shelves that a reader of any age could pick up and enjoy, but DC's Li'l Gotham is exactly that -- a truly all ages comic, and it's great. We spoke to half of the book's creative team, Dustin Nguyen, about comics for kids, making Batman adorable, and the future of the Li'l DC Universe.
I See What They Did ThereOk, so I already gave away the change in the title so we can't play a game of "Spot the Difference" but what I can tell you is the image on the left is part of a page from Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridgolfs' digital-first Lil' Gotham comic. On the right is what DC Comics sold on release day. The only alteration is Batgirl's hair color. The image is not of Stephanie Brown/Batgirl but rather a person dressed as the character among a group of other folks dressed up as DC heroes and villains for Halloween. We've posted the full images after the jump and we leave it up to you to discuss.
Things We Saw TodayI've long been a fan of Dustin Nguyen's Lil' Gotham characters. Well, after five years of trying to convince DC an out-of-continuity title like this could sell, it's being released as a digital first comic tomorrow!! Nguyen will be drawing as well as co-writing with Derek Fridolfs. (via DC Source blog)
