"Gotham Central" is a wonderful police procedural, a good way of
showing the effects of superheroes/vigilantes on the street level.
Batman is shown as more of a last resort than the first call, which I
appreciated. Michael Lark's artwork and the muted coloring really adds
to the atmosphere and noirish qualities. They technically haven't
collected the whole series though. The trades were never in any order
and they didn't include a couple of arcs/single stories. The
hardcovers are supposed to cover it all. The first one is being
released in September.
