PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Holy hometown, Batman!

A highly anticipated Batman comic book series will have some locations that might look familiar to Maine residents. The Portland Press Herald reports Portland City Hall, Old Port's cobblestone streets and various red brick buildings will be a part of Gotham in DC Comics' "Batman: White Knight."

The artist and writer is Sean Murphy, who recently moved to Portland. He says he was inspired by the city feeling like a "perfect foggy New England town."

Murphy says the series centers on a seemingly reformed Joker who runs for City Council and uses his media campaign to blame Batman for the city's crime.

DC representatives say the series is one of the top three best-selling comic books for October.

The first issue goes on sale Oct. 4.
