LOVE this. Batman's only a peripheral figure here, and this only counts as superhero title by that slim association. The focus is real on the very human detectives of the GCPD. Has a wonderfully diverse cast that manages to avoid feeling like diversity via quota--and oh how I wish that wasn't unusual, but we all know it still is in Big 2 comics. And Lark's art does a perfect job of establishing the tone and atmosphere of this noir narrative.
