A high-profile criminal operation is foiled by the GCPD, and in the eyes of Commissioner Renee Montoya, there’s only one suspect worth investigating: the murderous gangster known as Two-Face. But every report appears to show that Harvey is back on the straight and narrow. Is the duplicitous former villain once again leading a double life? Or are ghosts from Renee’s past influencing her objective judgment?

    Much like the old police shows I used to watch but with the added benefit of being based in Gotham, a fantastic overall book giving a fresh look at the dark world we love. Read Full Review

    GCPD: The Blue Wall #3 is John Ridley at his best for storytelling. It delivers a complicated, character driven story, that is full of uneasy answers. It isn't afraid to delve into issues that are realistic and dealt with every day, spotlighting the dirt of society. It's a fantastic adult take on the superhero universe showing Ridley continues to be a voice comics needs. Read Full Review

    This is still a weird comic, but it's finding its footing more and leaning more into the "Gotham" of the GCPD. Read Full Review

    I don't like how static this issue is; I think the various themes are fighting for dominance instead of complementing each other; and I think that the art looks kind of rushed. I'm crossing my fingers that the second half of this storyline will pick up, but as it stands I can't recommend this issue. Its biggest offense is simply that it's kind of boring. Read Full Review
