Welcome to the Comicosity Book Club!

From today, September 22, to September 28 we will be focusing on Gotham Central: Book One by Ed Brubaker, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark.

That means we’re looking at issues #1-10, which are collected in hardcover as well as softcover trades, and available digitally through multiple platforms.

The series focuses on the Gotham Central Police Department, taking a look at what goes on in Gotham if you’re attempting to keep the peace and aren’t wearing a cape and cowl. This critically acclaimed series features two undisputed masters of crime writing in Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka and a brilliant artist in Michael Lark, who is currently working with Rucka on the amazing Lazarus.

Gotham Central is a favourite of many staff members here at Comicosity and we look forward to seeing what parts of the book stick with you!
