9781401209124: Gotham Central Vol. 4: The Quick and the Dead (Batman)

In the best tradition of Batman: Year One and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Gotham Central continues the 'film noir' makeover of the Batman mythology! Be it Mister Freeze or Firebug, in Gotham City, there's a whole new class of criminal that needs a new calibre of crime fighter. And while Batman gets all the glory, the cops on the streets continue dealing with the usual run-of-the-mill human misery. But what happens when the streams cross, when a dead girl and the return of a super-arsonist are linked? This is NYPD Blue as comics, gritty and raw, with no capes or utility belts - just gut instinct, blind fear and selfless couragel It's business as usual at Gotham Central...

About the Author:

Ed Brubaker is responsible for revitalising the Catwoman comics and has also worked on Batman and Deadenders. Greg Rucka is currently one of the hottest writers around having worked on the whole range of Batman titles, Wolverine and Queen & Country. Michael Lark has worked on prestigious titles including The Invisibles, JSA and The Sandman.

From Booklist:

It's telling that the best of the many comics featuring Batman and his crime-fighting associates is one in which the Caped Crusader appears only fleetingly. Gotham Central focuses on the city's police force, who contend with superpowered foes as well as mundane criminals. In the issues collected here, Batman becomes even more marginalized, since the Bat-Signal is removed from police headquarters after a falling-out between the department and the costumed vigilante. Plot and character, rather than superhero action, drive crime-novelist Rucka's compelling story lines, and although original artist Michael Lark departs halfway through this run, successor Stefano Gaudiano admirably maintains Lark's low-key, muted approach.
