    Default Gotham Girl Returns in Detective Comics #1059

    Gotham Girl was one of several young, new heroes introduced with much fanfare in 2016, but since then she's had a rough road. Now she's back on her own two feet, and starring in her own three-part story beginning in April's Detective Comics #1059.

    The three-pack backup serial 'Gotham Girl: Interrupted' will be written by Sina Grace, with art from David Lapham and colorist Trish Mulvihill.

    "Claire Clover's reintegration into society after an extended stay at Arkham is thrown a curveball by way of a gossip site using her Gotham Girl moniker to air the city's dirty laundry," Grace tells Newsarama. "Gotham Girl has to keep it together long enough to find out who's running the site while fending off half of Gotham City's criminal underworld, all while maintaining appearances as a normal high school girl that Batman need not worry about."

    The title, 'Gotham Girl: Interrupted,' is taken from the 1993 memoir Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen. The book chronicles her experiences as a young woman in the psychiatric hospital system after being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. You might know it best for the 1999 film adaptation starring Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie.

    It's nice to see someone other than Tom King write her. The plot sounds like a combination of Gossip Girl, Batman and Girl Interrupted. I'm a bit wary but will still check it out, DC needs more chick lits.

    Wow, she's certainly...changed. Even more than she did in King's run.

    Meh. I liked her for King's run but not every character needs to be revisited.

    Not sure Gotham needs a Supergirl. Or worse, Sentry.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC Universe…

    Seems like she's becoming a little more Sentry than Supergirl...with a dose of Big Sister with that monitoring room.

    Did they ever give her relationship with Duke closure? I lost track of it.

    There was really no relationship with Duke to give closure too outside that fast-forward narration's implication.

    I don't think it really needs closure, it always read pretty one sided. Duke never really showed any romantic affinity for her and other than the flash forward/narration (which was from Gotham Girl's mentally unstable perspective) the idea of that relationship was pretty nonexistent for the rest of King's time on Batman even when Claire returned.

    personally, I'm happy to let that one fall by the wayside. honestly I would rather Duke stay with Izzy or end up with either Cassandra Cain or Naomi McDuffie (no Duke and Naomi haven't crossed paths yet but I like the idea of that pairing).
