Detective is embracing Batman’s gothic side with this story. Compared to last issue, much of this one is measurably darker. The texture is a little bit scratchier. We’ve got a very gothic looking opera scene, complete with a demon. It’s too early to judge the story. But it’s a way to go.

Our back-up story stars Jim Gordon. Between this, and what James Tynion IV had him doing over in The Joker, I’m really digging him in the detective role. It allows him to get his hands dirty in a way he often couldn’t as the commissioner.
