A cold case resurfaces as new matters bring up old memories for one retired cop with a drinking problem. How does a hostage situation turn into a cold case where the boy’s locker room gets blown to bits? Read this book to find out!
I enjoyed this book! It has plenty of the famous Batman villains in this collection of stories! I especially loved the story involving the Joker! Just wow! There’s a method to his madness, and only Batman knows how the Joker works!
I was expecting a lot of Batman showing up and saving the day, but this is a story where the G.C.P.D. does all the saving without having to depend on Batman to do their job. I loved how they showed just how much effort the G.C.P.D. puts into their jobs. Made me feel like I was watching Law & Order (pick whichever one you want, they’re all great in their own way)!
I did at times, lose track of the characters. Most of the male cops were your stereotypical male cops. The female cops however were great! You can see how tough it is to be a female in a males’ role.
One thing I didn’t like about it was the artwork (I know I’m being picky here). I’m not a fan of watercolor or anything that looks like watercolor. Just a nitpick from me.
I loved this graphic novel. I give it my 10/10, would recommend for anyone who loves comics, and crime! Also the Joker, this week is Joker themed after all.
