What I'm Reading Now: Will the Real Darren Please Stand Up?

Gotham Central
Written By: Ed Brubaker & Greg Rucka
Art By: Michael Lark

Sorry for the late post y’all. Just spent the last 12 hours at an Obama rally but I got to shake his hand and get his autograph so I’ll make a check in the W column for the day. So now I guess it’s time for the true “What I’m Reading Now” post (there are some posers up in here). This week has been pretty hectic but I have been able to fit one great title in my very crazy schedule: Gotham Central. Written by Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka (can I just end the article there) and art by Michael Lark, Gotham Central is the story of Gotham’s finest. With a great cast of characters, Gotham Central is some of the best reading of crime fiction I have read in a long time. This story represents a vital importance in the current events of Final Crisis also. Crispus Allen (currently The Spectre) and Renee Montoya (Currently The Question) develop their relationship throughout these pages. This relationship is what makes Final Crisis: Revelations a true emotional roller coaster. With an all-star cast, Gotham Central has a lot to offer. Brubaker and Rucka together… who could ask for more. The pencils of Michael Lark also add to this story a great deal and the dark tones and heavy lines give a great sense of Gotham City. But perhaps the most fascinating part of this story is the view it takes. Everyone knows Gotham’s vigilante protector but what about the five-o? Readers get to see the rules and laws to igniting the bat-signal and also see the views of other cops about Batman, be it good or bad. With a great cast and story, Gotham Central will definitely leave you wanting more.

P.S. – I have no idea who that person in the flash costume is but it’s not me and yea cosmo does have great sex advice….GET OVER IT!
