Description

Gotham City: a town teeming with corrupt cops, ruthless crime lords, petty thieves ... and just a small handful that would oppose them. Grizzled veteran Harvey Bullock, Captain Maggie Sawyer, Detective Renee Montoya and the GCPD are the law force that stands between order and complete anarchy. Gotham's Finest work around the clock to not only keep the world's most psychotic criminals off the street... but also cleaning up the mess left behind by Batman's one-man war on crime. Written by critically acclaimed authors Ed Brubaker (Captain America) and Greg Rucka (52, Detective Comics), this Eisner Award-winning series follows the detectives of Gotham City's Special Crimes Unit as they navigate against the city's greatest villains--in the shadow of Batman himself. This Eisner Award-winning series is now available in its entirety in this Omnibus edition. Collects issues #1-40.show more

Review quote

"Realistic, gritty, and most importantly, a treat to read!"--Ain't It Cool News "Compelling drama...a great example of the literary and artistic maturity of the graphic novel format."--School Library Journal "Outstanding...a deft mash-up of the super-hero saga and police procedural."--Booklist "This Greg Rucka/Ed Brubaker/Michael Lark monthly comic was short-lived but absolutely fantastic. Essentially Homicide: Life on the Street where the criminals are all costumed lunatics, Gotham Central focused on the nitty-gritty police work performed by its gigantic cast of detectives."--Entertainment Weekly "Critically acclaimed Gotham Central was a distinctly grounded take on the Batman mythology filled with an ensemble cast who were particularly unlikely to show up in that month's issue of Justice League or Superman--imagine Hill Street Blues, but with the Joker showing up to cause mass terror every now and again."--Hollywood Reporter "By making the Gotham City Police Department the central focus of the series, writers Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka created a comic book that read like a gritty crime fairy tale set in the most twisted city in the DC Universe."--Complexshow more
