Gotham City is no more, and per usual it’s because of a supervillain. Except this time around Gotham is a fascist state under the guise of utopia.

That’s the idea behind the upcoming DC Comic’s upcoming series Gotham City Garage. Based on the popular DC Collectibles line, Gotham City Garage is penned by Jackson Lanzing (Batman & Robin Eternal) and Collin Kelly (Grayson). Drawing from the aesthetic style of the collectibles line, the pair has crafted a world focused on a post-devastation Gotham, now called The Garden.

The city has prospered under the rule of Governor Lex Luthor, though not without cost. He keeps order through LEXES tech, which keeps the citizens of The Garden under sort of hive mind. If a citizen acts against the approved mindset, The Governor’s enforcers, led by the Batman, restore the status quo.

Enter Kara Gordon, daughter of Jim Gordon, secret Kryptonian, and LEXES employee. She is forced to leave The Garden for the wasteland after being suspected of subversion. There, there she meets the gearhead rebels of Gotham City Garage, including Big Barda, Harley Quinn, Hawkgirl, and Wonder Woman. Together, they team up to reclaim Gotham City.

The series will have rotating artists, starting with Brian Ching (Supergirl) and followed by Lynne Yoshii, a recent grad of the DC Talent Development Workshop.

Gotham City Garage is an anti-fascist anthem for the open road, starring reimagined takes on DC’s great female characters through an outlaw lens. We’re bringing Big Barda, Steel, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Silver Banshee, Hawkgirl and the first Kryptonian this world has ever seen—the mysterious girl named Kara Gordon—into a world of bikes, outlaws and elaborate tattoos.” -Collin Kelly

Gotham City Garage is a digital-first series, debuting August 16, with a new chapter released biweekly through October 2017. Thereafter the series will transition to weekly, with print issues available starting in October.

Check out the Garage on the DC Comics App, readdcentertainment.com, iBooks, comiXology, Google Play, Kindle Store and Nook Store.

This is an exciting chance to explore the meaning of heroism in a world devoid of hope, to rebel-yell alongside our favorite DC superheroines at a time when we need it the most.” – Jackson Lanzing
