From The Interview
Nguyen says that “I felt like the style of Batman: Li’l Gotham fit well with the dark world of Gotham. Since that combination had already worked for us before, I felt confident bringing in the dark side of fairytales. If anything, the whimsy and wonder of a storybook setting made it simple to combine subject matter than leaving it in Gotham!”
