At a convention I went to there was this one vendor who was selling small kaiju (SD figurines, candy toys, gachapon etc) but they were loose so he put the toys in plastic sushi containers and I remember thinking it was an awesome idea
Just got word that we’re getting to move forward with a book we pitched late last year for a new Lil Gotham series, titled BATMAN: Lil'er Gotham.
We’re working up themes for stories right now, covering all the Lil'er holidays we missed last year. The biggest change you’ll notice is that we were asked to go even bigger with their heads, and will most likely be eliminating legs and limbs altogether. Marketing felt this would help us compete with the growing trend in chibi toys and SD styled merchandise out there.
I for one, was against it at first ,but then i considered how much less i would have to draw, so im definitely on board. Also, editorial is looking at even shorter stories, down to roughly 5-6 pages per chapter, hence the “ Lil'er ” part.
