The mayor of Gotham City is dead.
Someone put a bullet through his head during an early morning meeting with Police Commissioner Michael Akins — and three weeks before Christmas no less.
Just as the detectives of Gotham Central — DC Comics’ answer to Law & Order, Homicide: Life On The Street or CSI — hit the streets, there’s another shooting and the city’s coroner loses her hand.
The game’s afoot and in Gotham that can only mean some costumed psychopath is sending a message to The Batman — in this case, The Joker. But GCPD aren’t going to sit on their hands and wait for the Dark Knight to save the day and the spiraling paranoia over who’s going to get shot next threatens to turn the city into a the town that Christmas forgot.
Co-writers Greg Rucka and Ed Brubaker, along with artists Michael Lark and Stefano Gaudiano, give readers another outstanding collection of one of the most underrated series in comics.
