    This is certainly one of the best books of the week as the premise is one of the most welcoming status-quos Ive read in awhile. Id also recommend you try out the related Bat-books as they are equal in their storytelling quality. Marvelous. Read Full Review

    An entertaining done-in-one affair that acts as a pretty solid means of introducing readers to the large cast of characters that occupy these pages. Plus along the way we're also introduced to a fairly engaging character who plays a rather key role in the DCU, as in an Astro City style moment we get a quick peek behind the curtain so to speak, and learn how the Bat-Signal is explained to the public, who have to wonder why the Gotham City Police Department have a giant spotlight mounted on the roof of the station house, when Batman is supposed to be a urban legend. Now this issue isn't all that deep when it comes to the plot, as it's basically a day in the life, but we do get a couple interesting, if not overly difficult cases that are resolved, and there's also a nice bit of follow-up to the Freeze case, as we see the Gotham Police aren't exactly big fans of the revolving door that is Arkham Asylum. Nor should they be, considering the escape rate has to be just this side of ridiculous. Read Full Review
