    A definite 5 star score in fact if we had more to give I definitely would, this is some of Ridley's finest work and I have a feeling this story has only just begun, big things are about to happen in Gotham. Read Full Review

    GCPD: The Blue Wall #4 is a pretty big shift as to where the series is going. It's gone from beating these characters down to action being taken, a more traditional action we'd expect in a Batman comic. Where the team takes it all should be interesting but this issue's ending definitely delivered a surprise. Read Full Review

    The story often feels like it's testing her, but for most of the issue it does feel like a positive corner is being turned. Then the story takes such a dark, absurd turn out of nowhere that it lost me, as one character who seemed to be beginning a dark turn goes from zero to 99 in five seconds, essentially making them irredeemable out of nowhere, and I'm not sure it means anything good for another character's years of development.

    Aside from the plot twist at the end, this comic does nothing for me, and even the plot twist seems kind of fabricated and uncharacteristic. I see plenty of potential in this title, but the execution is not up to par. I still can't recommend this book. I wish I could. Read Full Review

    This comic is trying to take a long hard look at being a cop, but it ended up going off the deep end into something that's just... implausible at best. Read Full Review
