What is the Skeleton in Commissioner Gordon's Closet?
Commissioner Gordon's kid is back in town. Why is this bad news for Gordon?
The GoodThis issue literally had me on the edge of my seat. The return of James Gordon Jr. brings new light to Commissioner Gordon. We all know he's one of the best men in Gotham but what is this skeleton he's had in his closet all these years? What is the story about his son. The two have a simple conversation in a diner but the question keeps coming up, "What did you do?" I kept trying to look ahead to catch a glimpse of a word or phrase on the next panel or page to figure out how this story would end. And when it does end...you'll have to find out for yourself. I really don't know where the story will go after this but dang if I'm not excited to find out.
We also get a team up with Batman (Dick Grayson) and Red Robin. What's nice about this is it's continuing from the last story arc. Dick is still feeling some of the effects from the gas the Dealer used on him.
In this issue we have art by Francesco Francavilla. His style compliments Snyder's story perfectly as you get sucked into the story. It's amazing that a simple scene in the diner can be presented in such an eerie way.
