Things We Saw Today: Lil’ Gotham Gets A Comic

Things We Saw Today

I’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.

Wight, this year’s Republican candidate for the U.S. House from New York’s 12th Congressional District.” No word as to why he was posting false information, BuzzFeed tried to reach him for comment to no avail.

Nicely done, Mario Flores, but it’s a little too weird. Even for me. (via Nerd Approved)
