To get an idea of where the series is headed in 2013, CBR News spoke with series co-writer and artist Dustin Nguyen, who discussed the initial pitch for the series, the existence of "Li'l Gotham" as short backup stories in "Batman Annual" and "Detective Comics Annual," the advantages of working in the digital format and the possibilities of expanding "Li'l Gotham" beyond its Gotham City borders.
CBR News: Dustin, before we kick things off and discuss the future of "Batman: Li'l Gotham," what were your expectations for the digital-only comic prior to launching last year? Did you think it would become as big a phenomenon as it has?
Yes! I think it's been solicited already, but our first issue in print hits newstands in April.
What else do you have coming down the line in the coming months?
I think DC's about to make that announcement pretty soon.
The print edition of "Batman: Li'l Gotham" #1 arrives in April. Stay tuned to CBR News for more on upcoming digital episodes and Nguyen's future projects.
