There Goes The Neighborhood: ‘Gotham City Monsters’ Arrives In September

A little early for Halloween, DC will put out Gotham City Monsters, which spins out of the event Event Leviathan. It’s not known if this is a one-shot, series, or mini-series, but it will have Frankenstein, formerly of S.H.A.D.E., assembling some monstrous allies for a cause.

Gotham City Monsters will be written by Steve Orlando, with art by Amancay Naheulpan. Philip Tan will illustrate its cover, with Frank Cho providing a variant cover. The monsters move in on September 11.

Here’s the solicitation text and cover:

Leviathan has dismantled S.H.A.D.E.—and that means Frankenstein is once again a free agent! Now he can set his sights on his former mentor, Melmoth, the one evil that got away. With bad things happening all across the Multiverse, this may be Frankenstein’s last shot at setting things right. Of course, Melmoth has his own agenda, and it’s going to take more than a lone monster to take him down.

So Frankenstein heads to Gotham City in search of allies and recruits Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca and vampire Andrew Bennett. But will even these dread creatures be enough to save humanity before the entire cosmos collapses in on itself?
