Writer: Greg Rucka - This is a first-rate comic story from Mr. Rucka. I was not expecting to pick up a police comic and read a story about the trials of a female cop who has been outed publicly as a lesbian and has to deal with the backlash. It was smart and original.

Artists: Michael Lark, Jason Pearson, Cam Smith, William Rosado, & Steve Mitchell - As with the first Gotham Central, the art has a retro feel reminiscent of the early days of comics.

Colorists: Matt Hollingsworth, Digital Chameleon, & Wildstorm FX - the color worked much better for me in this volume than in the first. There are definite color schemes at work, and they come off as being classy and polished. Subtleties are played against contrasts, helping the whole volume feel more dramatic.

This was overall the most polished of the Gotham Central volumes that I have read.
