    Niles and Jones make the setting of the story important, but I'm very biased in this respect. I firmly believe that Gotham City should be the second safest burg in the world. Batman has been around, even in this continuity-light story, at least five years, and that should be reflected. Only the stupidest or most arrogant criminals should exist in Gotham City. Batman is a deterrent. His presence should be like dropping the meanest, biggest cat in a ship's hold filled with rats. The rats would learn how to swim. Read Full Review

    I'm sure Steve Niles appreciates the steady stream of gigs and all, but he's got to be tired of his pigeonholed status as a gothic/horror writer, right? Don't get me wrong; I'm all for an author working with their strengths, but this is ridiculous. If you want your fix of a supernaturally gothic Gotham City, then go pick up the Simon Dark back issues- those stories are infinitely more entertaining than this one. Read Full Review
