I’ve also been a fan as of late of the terrific storytelling of that talented fella known as Scott Snyder, so you can imagine my reaction when I got the invitation to be part of this run of DETECTIVE COMICS. I pinched myself, then asked my wife to
I received the following email last night from Lt. Jim Gordon of the Gotham City Police Department. With the events spiraling out of last week’s hostage situation involving Harvey Dent, there is a lot of back story viewers of The Dark Knight might need to know to fully appreciate the upcoming flick. My friend, Indictments are about to be handed down. If you don’t want your name on one, we’ll need your full cooperation in an upcoming operation. In case you haven’t heard, we are struggling with a bit of corruption in the department. I’m not about to let the
