G.C.P.D.: The Blue Wall #1

The other protectors of the Gotham City streets, the Gotham police, are getting their own comic book series - written by John Ridley. Ridley and artist Stefano Raffaele are currently working on a six-issue DC COmics series titled G.C.P.D>: The Blue Wall.

G.C.P.D.: The Blue Wall #1

Announced as part of DC's Gotham publishing panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego, G.C.P.D.: The Blue Wall will be Ridley's second Batman-adjacent series, alongside the NYC-set I Batman ongoing comic book series.

There have been several comic book series based on the Gotham police department, including most notably Gotham Central. A TV series based on the police force was at one time in development for HBO Max, spinning out of the recent The Batman film, but that has been put on hold.
