thanks

I wanted to thank the online community for helping spread the word of our Lil Gothams book last week. With the help of Tumblr,Twitter, Deviant Art, Facebook, and whatever other social network outlets there were, we were able to give the book the launch we needed to prove that a book like this can work. By Friday morning last week, just two days after we launched, Batman: Lil Gotham was on the top ten selling list of over 12 countries www.bleedingcool.com/2012/11/0… , and was the top downloaded book from DC Digital. That's not a huge deal if you're any mainstream book, but for our title- i feel that's a huge step towards something that can be great.

So thank you everyone- from the casual readers, to the die hard core batman fans, anyone that's never given digital comics a chance until now, and anyone that's ever commented, mentioned, and supported my work. Your support is very, truly, appreciated.

Thank you,

-dustin

I downloaded this as soon as I could. I loved the art and the story was so cute. I'll definitely add this to my pull list and pick up all hard copies, the art is just too beautiful and vibrant to not have a print version. Good luck with the project and hoping the fan base EXPLODES!

I just realized this won't be in print. I do hope it does well enough to get a nice trade version.

Because it was awesome! Seriously. Awesome. To the max.

Also, it's good to see a stylzed super-deformed style in the states that is drawn consistently.

I'm so glad that your comic is doing that well already! It also makes me happy that you guys have so much support from others to help make it fly so high. I really am happy for the both of you guys and wish you all the luck in the world with this.

btw: I absolutely love that cute Joker-pillar.

really hope that reaching the top 10 means DC Comics will begin to support these books.
I honestly just want a good Captain Marvel Book that is ongoing and drawn and written real well.
Now I am a fan of Amanda Conner's art work and honestly with writing I guess I’d like to see what you can do with Captain Marvel.
I wouldn’t mind seeing what Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti do with Captain Marvel.
But I know I would be happy to outing a series with my friend to show to DC. But I get the feeling and by feeling I mean the readers seem to get that DC doesn’t care what we think.
But what it’s worth on a personal level I think Li’l Gotham is one of the best things to happen to DC comics easily in the last ten years. I would really like to see Li’ Superman and maybe Li’l Lobo [looking like Lobo, not the crap Rob Liefeld did, sorry but his design was horrible.].
