    Like I said, though, in the end, the appeal of Gordon and McGraw's work with him makes this issue a worthwhile read. Those who are eagerly devouring all things Battle for the Cowl will definitely find a worthy companion to the story in this issue, even if it doesn't exactly break new ground. Read Full Review

    The Battle for the Cowl is going to rage on for another two months and there will be a few more one-shots and miniseries to come and there will be some good ones and some not so good. Be assured that this one-shot is well worth picking up, especially if you're needing a fix from the GCPD. Read Full Review

    "Batman: Battle for the Cowl: Commissioner Gordon" isn't a bad story and does an able job of demonstrating the police's role in a Gotham without Batman. It's also worth it to see Gordon in action, a role he isn't provided nearly enough. Though, it is odd to see the police act so helpless without Batman considering this isn't the first time he's disappeared. After all, he was gone for an entire year during the run of "52." Ignoring that, this issue might have been better served as a back-up story or splitting the duties with a story focusing on another cop like Bullock. Otherwise, a decent read. Read Full Review
