Noir Comics | Batman’s Gotham Noir

you had me at Brubaker...

Here is a delicious noir comics announcement from ifanboy:

DC is finally reprinting the classic Elseworlds story from 2001 by the creative team behind Criminal. The story is set in Gotham City in 1949 and stars hard boiled private detective Jim Gordon, and if you’re a fan of Brubaker and Phillips’ work on Criminal picking up this one is a no-brainer. If all of that’s not enough, I highlighted this book on one of our vault video shows way back in the first year of the show, back when we were young and fancy free and didn’t have professional lights. Check it out.

I’m a bit hesitant still, even though Batman’s Gotham Noir looks amazing, Brubaker in 2001 is a far cry from Brubaker now. I recently read some of his earlier noir stuff and it really doesn’t hold a candle to his newer entries. For example: I didn’t like Sleeper….GASP! Are you surprised? don’t be, it’s way over-hyped and underdeveloped. Especially if you’ve read Incognito, which is extremely more enjoyable as a noir comic. Nevertheless, I’ll be purchasing, reading and reviewing this one soon. Thanks for the tip Zach S. !
