DC Announces Gotham by Midnight
Detective Jim Corrigan, who’s better known as the Spectre, will be getting his own series with Gotham by Midnight, written by Ray Fawkes and drawn by Ben Templesmith, this November.
In this new series, Corrigan will be leading a team called the Midnight Shift who investigate supernatural mysteries in Gotham. Members of the group include Corrigan’s partner Lisa Drake, forensic investigator Dr Szandor Tarr and religious consultant Sister Justine. When interviewed, Ray Fawkes said of the book…
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.
