Set in an alternate version of the DC Universe where Governor Lex Luthor has transformed the traditional dystopia of Gotham City into a contemporary paradise known as The Garden, Gotham City Garage centers on those who don’t believe in his program of keeping all citizens locked up to one networked mindset that he controls. And these members of the resistance just happen to be versions of familiar DC heroines.
“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,” Collin Kelly, who’ll co-write the series with Jackson Lanzing, said in a statement. “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.”
I finally got to see Logan this weekend and it’s truly an amazing film with perhaps some of the finest overall cast performances ever in a Super Hero movie. Hugh Jackman couldn’t have said goodbye to the Wolverine in a more powerful and poignant manner and James Mangold simply knocked it clean out of the park. I’m so honored and flattered to have been asked to be a small part of this movie and thrilled for everyone involved that it’s being received so well.
For those that asked, here are the digital pencils I contributed to the movie. These were taken by the magnificently talented, though slightly annoying, Dan Panosian who inked, colored and effected them to look like a classic X-Men comic from the 90’s.

It’s been decades since Governor Lex Luthor turned Gotham City into a modern utopia, saving his people from the devastation that made the rest of the continent a wasteland. But his city isn’t paradise for everyone. If the Lexes network misfires, and a citizen wakes up and steps out of line, the Bat and his minions are brutal in restoring the status quo. So when young Kara Gordon, whose ridealong tech has never functioned optimally, rushes headlong into the Freescape, she’s shocked to find Gotham City Garage—where new friends might become family, if she lives long enough.
