Why do the cops always seem to resent Batman? Is it because they are bad guys?More likely they are a little frustrated at living in the shadow of a rich underwear pervert who swoops in and solves cases that they are powerless to pursue. This police procedural never feels cheesy, never makes fun of the helpless cops. It evokes a some of the tension in Warren Ellis's "Scars" and shows these dogged professionals doing their best in a universe set up for a different main character.The big guy only makes a couple of appearances, because the book isn't about him. When he shows up, he is the star again, but that just drives home the point of it. I'm hoping the library has more of this series...

Gotham Central is an excellent mix of everyday cops in Gotham and how they deal with super-villians. Gotham is Batman's home but have you ever wondered how average cops survive in this town? How does the police force deal with the myth that is Batman? The characters in this book are believable and intriguing. The art by Michael Lark is dark, moody and fits the story perfectly. This is one of my favorite comics of all time. You must check it out!
