A weekend comic reading review…because Pastors sometimes need a break from heavy theological reading.

Ed Brubaker.  Gotham Central: In the Line of Duty. New York, NY: DC Comics, September 16th 2008. 240 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the first volume in the Gotham Central series put out by DC Comics.  It tells the story of Gotham city’s detectives in their police department’s major crimes unit.  Gotham of course is the fictional city in the world of Batman.  But this is not primarily a story about Batman and while Batman does make his appearance this is primarily about the story of the cops and detectives in a world where Batman exists along with the villains that Batman fights against.  I love the reversal where Batman and even the villains are on the “side lines” while Gotham police force which often takes a supporting role in most comics are brought front and center.  This is an interesting angle for a graphic novel!
