While we all wait impatiently for the return of Gotham, Fox has thankfully decided to sate our appetites by releasing a five part motion comic mini-series online, titled “Gotham Stories.”
Featuring the voice talents of Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle/Cat), Nathan Darrow (Victor Fries), Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) and Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), these brief installments will bridge the gap between the first half of Season Two, “Rise of the Villains,” and the second half, “Wrath of the Villains.” Thirty seconds of this installment will be shown during tonight’s episode of The X-Files, but the entire one minute clip can luckily be viewed in the video embedded above.
MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB
In this first episode, we see that Penguin and others are not wasting any time attempting to fill the power vacuum left after the demise of corrupt mayor, Theo Galavan. The party is broken up by one cool customer – Mr. Freeze! It is interesting to note that this is actually the first time we have heard Mr. Freeze’s voice as portrayed by Nathan Darrow. Fans of the show should expect to see him in a multiple episode arc once the show returns from hiatus.
Gotham returns on Monday, February 29 on Fox. For now, however, check out the motion comic above and let us know what you think.
