Writing for his blog yesterday, James Tynion IV gave us a sneak peak of a new character named Miracle Molly. Below is Jorge Jimenez’s color guide that gives us a glimpse of the character. Apparently, we’ll be seeing a partial first appearance in Batman #106, and a first full appearance in Batman #108 which will also feature here on the cover.
From Tynion IV:
Her name is Miracle Molly. She’s on the cover of Batman #108, which will be her first FULL appearance, and the issue that I think will make you all fall as madly in love with her as Jorge and I are…The Unsanity Collective are a high tech gang of thieves who use technology to erase and reset their memories, so they can let go of all the fear and trauma holding themselves back. Miracle Molly builds all of their hardware. She’s unlike any of the other characters I’ve written in and around Gotham, and I fucking LOVE her. So I hope you love reading about her, too…
Batman #106 has a final order cut off this Monday, 2/8/2021. Check out the solicit below:
Following the tragic events of Infinite Frontier #0, Batman and his new ally, Ghost-Maker, must reckon with a new gang operating in Gotham City, but are they connected to the reemergence of the Scarecrow? Meanwhile, shadowy billionaire Simon Saint pitches an advanced law-enforcement system to the new mayor! The creative team behind the epic The Joker War returns with a thrill-packed, dangerous new storyline called The Cowardly Lot. Plus, the backup story Demon or Detective begins as Damian Wayne is on the run! After everything Damian has gone through, can he escape Gotham and find his way back to where his journey started to his mother, Talia al Ghul? This two-part tale concludes this month in Detective Comics #1034!
Not to bury the headline, though, Jimenez also re-designed Scarecrow and it is a simply breathtaking take on the classic Batman villain. You can see his silhouette in the Cover A of Batman #106 above and check out the interior art below:
While I’m showing off Jorge’s art, I have to spotlight the absolutely incredible design he’s put together for Scarecrow. I mean, just LOOK at him. I’ve been having an argument internally for years that we have to move away from the Batman Begins inspired “bag on a guy’s head” look for Scarecrow, and get back to something that looks like it would be hanging on a post in a field. I’ve been saying the hat is necessary in the design, and boy oh boy did Jorge deliver…
