Joss Whedon reveals new comic project, ‘Twist.’ A female, Steampunk, Batman-type


Yeah I’m going to go ahead and say I’m excited for this.


During his Dark Horse Comics spotlight panel at Comic-Con International, Joss Whedonannounced his latest foray into creator-owned comics with “Twist.”

Whedon described the six-issue series as the answer to “the most personal question that can be put to us, which is, why isn’t there a Victorian, female Batman?”

In the announcement released via Entertainment Weekly, the writer gets more specific about his steampunk-fueled superhero yarn. “It’s a Victorian thriller about a meek chambermaid who is fed to a dark horror — but instead of dying, she returns, with knowledge, power, and rage she can neither deny nor control.”
