Gotham Central, Book One: In the Line of Duty - Ed Brubaker, Greg Rucka, Michael Lark, Lawrence Block

a fun re-read--takes me back to my younger days, spent blazing through Ed McBain's Police Procedurals, though this is like the Deaf Man showing up every second or third story. Mister Freeze at his most brutal here, and this time I was ready for the fact that he doesn't actually appear that much (when he does, he's perfect; quality over quantity, yah?), and it's not about having a big fight with Batman, in this series. the second story--"Motives"--had mostly slipped my mind, which is good, so I got to be surprised all over again. I bet this all inspired faith in the TV series Gotham.
