I'm caught up on another title I read: Gotham Central. I'm not a big fan of Batman but I adore his supporting cast (Batgirl, Nightwing, Oracle, etc.) so when Gotham Central started up I decided to give it a try. Of course, the fact that Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka were going to write it made this series a must-try for me as well. Oh, and Michael Lark is doing the art which is definitely a bonus.
The premise behind this series is following the detectives in Gotham's MCU as they handle the metahuman related crimes that invariably pop up in Batman's town. And who better to give us some gritty, weird crime stories than Brubaker and Rucka? The detectives come across as real people doing a job that most of the other GCPD cops view with disdain. If you're a fan of well-written crime comics you should definitely pick up this series.
