Gotham Central Book 2 : Ed Brubaker :This volume collects two cases of the Gotham Special Crimes Unit. First, The Joker terrorizes the city at Christmastime when he begins randomly executing people with a rifle, and no one from the Mayor on down is safe. A second story focuses on an old case and unfinished business for disgraced detective Harvey Bullock. It's rare that a TPB will contain only strong story arcs, yet this one pull it off, and without being a superhero book! Makes you wonder about all those great stories we cold get if DC and Marvel weren't so dead set to force their writers to write only for their super-hero books. So, a gem, simply a gem. This is a very clever series, able to mix in classic Batman villains while keeping the actual Batman appearances to a minimum.
