This reimagining of the Batman mythos asks what would happen if the caped crusader's whole gallery of colorful rogues appeared before the Bat himself. Beginning with Bruce Wayne as a recently orphaned still a child under the care of his butler, this series instead focuses on young police detective Jim Gordon, a good cop devoted to solving the mystery of the Wayne murders. What follows is a twisting and weaving police procedural that leans heavy into the pulp. But it's as much an origin story for some of comic books' greatest villains as it is the tale of a good cop in trying circumstances.
