Jim Corrigan Leads New DC Title, Gotham By Midnight By Ray Fawkes And Ben Templesmith

You may have noticed there's a new TV show called Gotham coming soon. I rather enjoyed the pilot.

Well, that means lots of DC Comics with Gotham in the title…

And the latest is Gotham by Midnight, by Ray Fawkes and Ben Templesmith.


With Detective Jim Corrigan, better known in the Pre 52 as The Spectre, tracking down supernatural cases in Batman's back yard. Though the Dark Knight won't be in it a lot, merely liaising with Corrigan. Oh and he'll have a team to command, the Midnight Shift, with Corrigan's partner Lisa Drake, forensic investigator Dr. Szandor Tarr and religious consultant Sister Justine.

Blastr have an interview with Ray Fawkes and more right here…

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.
