Gotham Central depicts crime fighting in Gotham City from the standpoint of the police force, relegating Batman and the other costumed heroes and villains to the background.

Stefano Gaudiano, who replaces original artist Michael Lark late in this volume, admirably continues the atmospheric, muted visual approach that was the series’ hallmark. Ed Brubaker wrote the two-part "On The Freak Beat" ( with pencils from Jason Alexander. In this arc, Catwoman is suspected of murdering a televangelist and Detective "Josie Mac" considers her unusual powers of prescience.

This volume collects two separate cases of the Gotham Special Crimes Unit. Detective Renee Montoya investigates the disappearance of important evidence amid a gang war and travels to Keystone City in an attempt to unveil the truth about Officer Kelly's strange mutation. Plus, the dead body of Robin, the Boy Wonder is found on the streets. Now the detectives of Gotham Central must try to solve the mystery of his death while dealing with his former associates, Batman and the Teen Titans!

** My actual score is 3.75**

The writing of Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucker continued to be top tier, in line with their work in the first 2 volumes. Unfortunately I found the art to be a little lacking. The first portion of the book was drawn by Michael Lark(drew bk1 and most of bk 2), which I find to be outstanding. As I stated in reviews for the earlier volumes, Lark's art is somewhat of a noir style. It's quite the throwback to 70's and 80's comic art. Though light in detail, I found it to be very expressive and told its portion of the story very well.

Unfortunately Lark didn't draw this whole volume. The other artists did their best to mimic Lark's style, but didn't come close. Some panels I found even crossed the line into crude and jarring.

While I had some issue with a good portion of this books art, I thoroughly enjoyed the writing. Any fan of Brubaker and Rucker, Gotham city, or police procedure books will enjoy.

If your this far into Gotham Central, you already know the major selling points of this series. Engrossing dialogue, enjoyable characters, and just the right level of action run throughout this series. All of these elements return, but there are some caveats that prevent this series from gaining the full five stars.

First on the character front, this edition doesn't have the same breadth of cast as the first two omnibus's had. Only detectives Montoya, Allen, and MacDonald get to play a huge role. Don't get me wrong, these characters were at the top of there game, but if you were someone who liked the variety of players in Joker's and Madmen, this isn't going to measure up.

And second, this edition contains an issue called 'Light's Out'. At the core of this issue was a major shakeup in the Batverse, which I will not explain due to spoilers. Unfortunately, the reason behind this change appears to have happened in the Batman series proper, and is only briefly described in On the Freak Beat. As a result, this issue lost the major end of the impact it should have had.

Overall, this was a good set of stories, but I hoped for more.

This hardcover collects issues #23-31 of the "Gotham Central" series that follows two separate shifts of police officers working in the Major Crimes Unit of the Gotham City Police Department. Three of the four story arcs were written by Greg Rucka. "Corrigan" (#23-24) centers on partners Renee Montoya and Cris Allen and their suspicions of a corrupt crime scene investigator. The GCPD considers removing the Bat-signal in the one shot #25 "Lights Out". This is also the final issue with original series penciler Michael Lark (though he did provide the covers up to #30).
Ed Brubaker wrote the two-part "On The Freak Beat" (#26-27) with pencils from Jason Alexander. In this arc, Catwoman is suspected of murdering a televangelist and Detective "Josie Mac" considers her unusual powers of prescience. Longtime series inker Stefan Gaudiano provides the pencils for Rucka's "Keystone Kops" story (#28-31) featuring Montoya and Allen again, this time needing help from a supervillian to save a colleague's life.
Fans of the first two hardcovers should also enjoy this third volume. Though the "Gotham Central" series features some established characters from the DC Universe, new readers only need a general awareness of Batman rather than extensive familiarity with comic book minutia. Like most books from these writers, this excellent series is recommended for those who don't normally read comics as well as established fans of crime comics, police procedurals and/or DC's Bat-Verse.

Gotham Central really is a must-read for Batman fans. Batman and his rogues gallery exist on the edges of the series, which is about the officers who have to try to protect Gotham. This isn't as exciting as Book 2, which heavily involved the Joker and which I thought was the best book in the run, but it's still very good.

We finally get some pay-off to the hints and rumors about Corrigan's alleged corruption and there's a nice story-arc involving the investigation of a crime that appears to have been a burglary/murder by Catwoman. Also, the book explores just how messed up Renee Montoya is mentally at this time. The cracks in her psyche are really beginning to show after all of her years of working in Gotham.

This series is really a must read for anyone who remotely likes Batman.

After reading the first two books in the series and loving them both, I was excited to read the third volume. First off, I enjoyed reading this book, just not as much as the other two. One of the big differences is that Lark only did the art for the first part of the book, leaving Gaudiano to take over for the majority of the book. Lark's artwork was a big reason why I enjoyed the Gotham Central series so much. Although Gaudiano does not do a bad job its not the same as the previous volumes. Still, if you read the other two do yourself a favor and get this one as well.
