Detective Comics #31

Given a woman overdosing on a drug Harvey Bullock and his former partner pushed out of Gotham six years ago was found on Bruce Wayne's doorstep the detective is mighty suspicious of the billionaire. Although Bruce clears himself by proving he has no Icarus in his system, Bullock is far from satisfied that Wayne has nothing to hide. If he only knew.

Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato's opening arc on the title continues with some beautiful drawn and inked pages from the pair while setting Bruce Wayne in Bullock's crosshairs and giving Batman some action of his own including taking on a rather large individual known as Sumo.

Focusing on the detective work of both Batman and Bullock separately as the Dark Knight hears the first mention of "The Squid," while also throwing in some action and beautiful visuals, DC may have finally put together a creative team to consistently sell me on a Bat-book that doesn't star Scooby-Doo. Worth a look.
