My Official Response to All Those Questions About Gotham 

Fox has announced they’re making a television show about a younger Jim Gordon and his days on the GCPD prior to Batman.

Since this announcement, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about whether or not I’m involved in the show, and whether or not it’s drawing from or inspired by the work Ed, Michael, and I did on Gotham Central for DC Comics.

I offer the following answers:

  1. I was as surprised and delighted as everyone to hear they were making a “young Gordon” cop show.
  2. As far as I know, this has nothing to do with Gotham Central.
  3. If it did have anything to do with Gotham Central, that wouldn’t matter, because DC owns the rights and the characters, as they should. This was work-for-hire, something all of us knew at the start.
  4. I have not been contacted by anyone involved.
  5. I would be delighted to be contacted by anyone involved ;)
  6. I wish FOX and DC Entertainment success with the show.

That’s it. No drama, no trauma.

Looking forward to seeing it.
