Jim Gordon has spent years patrolling the streets of Gotham City as one of its top cops. Now he's doing it from inside a Batsuit.

With Bruce Wayne sidelined-perhaps permanently-the former Commissioner has taken on the mantle of the Bat, with a state-of-the-art suit of robotic armor and the full support of the Gotham City Police Department to back him up. But when you become the Batman, there's a deadly learning curve-and an army of crazed criminals waiting to take you down.

Can Gordon keep up? Or will his enemies and allies alike clip the new Batman's wings before he even gets off the ground?

Find out in BATMAN: DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 8-thrillingly written by Francis Manapul, Brian Buccellato, and Peter J. Tomasi, and stunningly illustrated by Fernando Blanco and Marcio Takara, it's a bold new chapter in the saga of Gotham's guardian!

Collects: DC Sneak Peek: Detective Comics #1 and Detective Comics#41-47.

    (B-) 71% | SatisfactoryNotes: An okay intro, pretty art, but past eight pages falls apart, it's mainly filler, interest killers, insubstantial from the start....

    Oh kee-rist, get the puke bags ready - he’s not on the cover (probably a strategic choice) but this is a Mecha-Batman/Jim Gordon book. Bleurgh! Blood of Heroes is the crappiest Detective Comics volu...

    This sucks. I barely have any idea of what’s going on anymore. I didn’t mind the first half of this trade but I’ve read it in another one so yeah. The rest of the issues in this were pointless t...

    This is less a Batman book than a GCPD reunion, which is in no way a knock on it. We get to see Bullock, Montoya, Gordon and others deal with problems within the department (especially people with iss...

    5 starsGood to see more of James Gordon as Batman. Also nice to see Harvey Bullock and Renee Montoya. Sad that Harvey's partner was dirty. Cool that Gordon got to work with the Justice League. Hope Br...

    I am not a fan. I am not a fan at all. This was a huge departure from normal character traits, which is always wrong. I also could not stand the personal trouncing that Harvey Bullock took in this boo...
