I’m enjoying the series so far, though this particular issue seemed like a breather from the larger action. There is some character development for Violet Paige. She reminds me of another cloaked crime fighter I’ve long been a fan of, one whose personal skills need a bit of work, and whose secret identity is little more than an inconvenience.
Not every issue has to be action-packed, and I’m comfortable with that. Perhaps it’s laying groundwork for later developments, or setting pieces in place.
Gotham” seems to be doing the same, but it’s only four pages, so there’s only
so much that can happen. Action sequences will come, I’m sure. If I’m wrong,
the feature will wither on the vine. That would be a shame. I enjoy the stories
that are set within the DC Universe, but don’t necessarily star the major
players (or even the minor ones), Gotham Central
being an example.
