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.
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.”
