MAJOR SPOILERS Trade Paperback Review
Gotham Central
From Amazon
The first ten issues of the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning series is collected in hardcover for the first time! Written by Ed Brubaker (Captain America) and Greg Rucka (Detective Comics, 52), this series pitted the detectives of Gotham City’s Special Crimes Unit against the city’s greatest villains – in the shadow of Batman himself.

This volume collects two cases of the Gotham Special Crimes Unit. In the first, a cop is killed by Mister Freeze, and the squad is in a race against time to bring him in without the help of the Dark Knight. In the second story–the acclaimed, award-winning “Half a Life”–Detective Renee Montoya is outed as a lesbian and finds her work environment and personal life turned upside down. Things only become more complicated when she’s kidnapped by Two-Face. This debut volume features an introduction by acclaimed mystery author Lawrence Block.

    You guys mentioned in this episode that someone was complaining that you guys favor Marvel too much. I posted a comment a few days ago that said that, but I want to make sure that you guys know that I was just kidding then, and that comment wasn’t meant to be serious at all. I was just mocking how people always accuse you guys of favoring one company over the other. I love your site and podcast, and I would never say anything bad about you guys.

    Anyways, great show as always!

    Heh. We’re not really up in arms about the “favoring one company over another” thing, so much as we believe it to be wrong and we’re working hard to make sure that the perception is smashed…

    Thanks for the kind words, tho…

    How do you think I feel? I’m the one who couldn’t get the song out of my head for a day and a half, and finally had to exorcise it by writing the show open.

    Great episode guys! I’ve been listening since your first “issue” and the show just seems to get better and better.

    You’ve got a great thing going here… Keep it up!

    I never thought my comments sounded as nonsensical when read.
