The storyline also dealt with issues not seen since Batman: The Animated Series, such as the corruption of the Gotham Police Force, Poison Ivy's environmental crusade and Commissioner Gordon's wavering faith in costumed superheroes.

A highly successful five-issue Gotham Girls comic book mini-series was produced by DC Comics in 2002 written by Paul Storrie, riding on the popularity of the online animated series and providing more mainstream publicity for its internet-based predecessor. It starred Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Batgirl and Renee Montoya, and each issue spotlighted one of these characters to a certain degree. The story, which took place in the DC animated universe, involved a vial of chemicals that the three villainesses fought over, as they also tried to avoid capture by Batgirl and Detective Montoya.
