Gotham Central, Vol. 5: Dead Robin - Ed Brubaker, Greg Rucka, Kano, Stefano Gaudiano Maybe Gotham Central really was too good to last. Luckily, the series seems to have gone out on the intended note. Which is, of course, not exactly a cheery one. The first storyline, which gives the collection its title, continues the series' exploration of the GCPD's relationship with Batman. That is, it's not great. And of course, the central mystery: Is that dead boy Robin? If not, then who? And why? It's a good, solid mystery. The collection, and the series, ends by continuing the Corrigan storyline, with the ultra-corrupt evidence tech introduced in an earlier story. This is a story that would go on to have major impacts elsewhere in the DCU, but that's barely foreshadowed here. Sandwiched in between is an issue that tied into Infinite Crisis by giving a ground-level, non-metahuman view of what was going on. Better than Infinite Crisis itself, actually. A great collection, and the end to a great series.
