4.0 out of 5 stars Good but a bit anti-climatic 31 Oct 2013

This is the last book of Rucka and Brubaker's Gotham Central. The series was very entertaining but I feels it lacks a more definitive ending than this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A ride this great deserved a better ending. 3 May 2012
By BK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Yeah, there's an awesome Batman cover but don't expect this to be Batman's ultimate, grand appearance in Gotham Central; it is still all about Gotham PD and its disappointing conclusion won't detract from just how good this series has been.

Without disclosing too much info, there is a one-shot story told from a corrupt cop's point of view, a mystery about boys dying in Robin costumes, another one-shot tying into Infinite Crisis, and the closing story revisiting Jim Corrigan. All that is expected from the series is present: intriguing plots, spot-on writing, compelling characterization, and awesome art (aside from the Teen Titans' appearance because they don't translate well to this gritty style but that's a minor hiccup).

I've read other reviews where the series' conclusion was praised but I would strongly disagree. The last story arc is incredible: it's captivating and emotionally pulls you in but this momentum is exactly why the finale feels all the more unsatisfactory. It's one of those eyebrow raising endings that left me thinking, "...that's it?!?". Now I understand there may have been bigger forces at DC at the time that pushed the series to prematurely end but a ride this great deserved a much superior send-off.

Gotham Central has been enjoyable from the get-go and of course, if you own the previous three volumes, pick this one up. I can only knock down one star from the rating because the entire series has been so fun but I cannot deny the sour taste left in mouth upon finishing this trade.
5.0 out of 5 stars Please make this into a tv show 24 July 2013

Fx should make this into a show so dc can compete with avengers sheild show. It would be like the sheild with dc characters.
5.0 out of 5 stars A step back from the highs of Volume 2, but still great 11 May 2013
By Brian B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I've mentioned in other reviews of Gotham Central, the book has received near-universal praise and, frankly, I think it deserves all of it. However, this book volume is typically treated as being a step back from the best stories in the series, but even if it is, that would still make it better than 90% of comics out there. So, short review: Must Buy. Longer discussion below.

The stand alone story at the beginning takes a different approach than the rest of the books, telling the story of two corrupt cops who aren't actually involved with MCU. Some of the regular Gotham Central characters make appearances (particularly Corrigan) but it's focused on these new characters. Essentially, where Gotham Central is about the cops one step removed from Batman, this story is about the cops one step removed from them. It's an interesting story and has a pretty great pay-off.

Then there's the dead Robin story, which I particularly enjoyed. It captures a lot of what makes this series special. In fact, the story I could have really skipped was the issue that takes place during Infinite Crisis. Now, depending on how you feel about Infinite Crisis, you may enjoy the issue more than I did (aside: I thought Infinite Crisis was pretty much a mess), but it really jumps away from the tone that I enjoyed in the series.

Finally, there's the volume's namesake arc: Corrigan. This is where the book tails off in my opinion but, again, still better than almost 90% of the books out there. I can't recommend this series highly enough.
5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic end to a fantastic series. 14 Feb 2013
By Dave Bell Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm honestly livid with myself for not picking this series up sooner. The art style perfectly compliments the grim and gritty reality of Gotham, yet still manages to capture the high-flying spectacle of the super-heroics that make the DC universe great.

The pacing of each story is never too slow or too fast, the characters are relate able and engaging, and the stories told within this volume are truly astonishing. The ending, in particular, was truly bittersweet, and not just because of the somber final chapter, bu because it was just that: the final chapter.

All in all, I would highly recommend this book for any fan of comics or crime-dramas. Aces all the way!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 17 Jun 2012
By MrPhinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A Batman comic with no Batman seemed impossible to enjoy, but these Gotham stories are incredible. The depth and characterization of the officers turns them into people you care about as you get to know over the series. Batman makes a few cameos which worked nicely in the series. Amazon only goes up to 5 stars, so I couldn't click a 6th one. A must read!
