Our Last Forum: Gotham – Comicbook to TV.
With four TV shows produced by DC now running on prime time television, the Marylebone Library Graphic Novel Club took the opportunity to review Gotham in December.
When a young Bruce Wayne (Batman) witnesses the murder of his parents, the new detective in town James Gordon navigates a system of corrupt cops and powerful criminals to bring justice to the city. Featuring the origins of famous Batman villains, this series is a visceral crime drama with a twist for comic book aficionados and non-readers alike.
