SDCC: Joss Whedon Announces New Comic, Calls It His "Victorian, Female Batman"

During his Dark Horse Comics spotlight panel at Comic-Con International, Joss Whedon announced 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."

Check back with CBR News soon for more on Joss Whedon's "Twist" and other news from Comic-Con International.
