Batman: Detective Comics Vol. 1: The Neighborhood (Detective Comics (2016-))

We rated this book:


Danger and mystery are afoot in Gotham as people go missing and turn up dead. And who does the blame fall on? Batman and Bruce Wayne, of course. With the police after both of his identities, Batman must search for clues and unlikely allies to help him save the people of Gotham before it’s too late.

Huntress isn’t good with the whole “friend” thing, but when the one person she’s grown fond of is killed, she goes on a hunt for revenge, leading her to team up with the Batman himself in the search for a killer.

With interesting characters and colorful art, I was hooked from the beginning and easily finished this collection of issues in one afternoon. This was the first Batman comic I’ve read, but I was able to understand what was going on and who the characters are with my limited knowledge of the DC universe. A few things were referenced from past issues, but they were briefly explained so it wasn’t confusing. Huntress isn’t the only other vigilante to make an appearance, many of the batfam do as well, if only briefly.
