it was amazing
bookshelves: own, 2012

After losing first Lark and then Brubaker to Marvel, Rucka brings Gotham Central to a close with the powerful "Corrigan II," following up on "Corrigan" from the last volume. Montoya-centric stories are always winners, and this one had me riveted. In addition, the "Dead Robin" story is almost as exciting as "Soft Targets," with the whole department going after a Robin-killer. Meanwhile, Romy Chandler works out her feelings toward Batman in the worst way possible.

I could have read many more issues of this series; it's just so consistently good. But, alas, it was not meant to be. Instead, we're left with forty issues of how do to a crackerjack police procedural in a superhero world by focusing on characters and always keeping things grounded, bringing the supers down to a realistic level. Adios, GCPD Major Crimes Unit. I hope you're in a better place.

Wait, you're all still in Gotham. Scratch that.
