I remember reading 100 Bullets, amazing!
So these are great recommendations, and as I was looking on DC universe they had a new question answered in the Ask section:
“I have really been enjoying the gritty realism of Gotham Central. Can you recommend any titles/runs that take this police-procedural, more realistic approach to story-telling. Thanks!” -Joe Vignati
Ah, Gotham Central. DC’s own Law and Order . There’s nothing entirely like it in the history of the DC Universe, and no better key to the mind of Renee Montoya, successor to The Question. But if you’re looking for something with the same grounded, less Super heroic feel, here are a few titles which may be for you:
*[Batman: Bullock’s Law] A one shot look into the procedure of everyone’s favorite Bat-skeptic, questionably crooked cop.
*[Batman: Gordon’s Law] A miniseries focusing on Commissioner Gordon himself, forced to take to the field when he can trust no one else in investigating corruption in his own police force.
*[Batman: Turning Points]
A series focusing on the integral history of Batman’s friendship with Gordon.
Warren Ellis’ episodic series about a network of 1,001 everyday people acting as agents for a world protecting spy group.
A student’s eye view on the goings-on of Gotham City.
[ Hitman ]
Another alternate ground view take on life in Gotham, from the eyes of its lowest lowlives.
Meet Christopher Chance, the man who keeps you alive by drawing your enemies into the open and taking them out.
Not your typical everyday life comic, but one that rarely verges on supernatural – only the hard cruelty of life in the Old West. Expect self-contained stories with a slow burn through-narrative.
[ Nathaniel Dusk ]
A [pair]of throwback series in the ‘80s to detective noir staples in the 1930s.
[ The Question ]
Stars a masked hero, but the problems he faces in a city that makes Gotham look good are often all too real. A fine companion to Gotham Central .
A WildStorm spy thriller by Gotham Central co-writer Ed Brubaker.
[ World of Metropolis ]
A 4 issue series about life in the city of Superman.
Oh, and make sure to keep your eyes out for Lois Lane , a current limited series by *Gotham Central’s Greg Rucka!
