As i have said before, in my mind Detective Comics is the gritty version of Batman whereas the main Batman title is the more superhero-like title.  Thus far in the new 52 that seems to have been reversed, with two mostly trivial story arcs already having wrapped in this series.  This issue comes out of nowhere though and returns this series to its roots.  The end result is two pretty solidly told stories (there is a backup story here is well) which focus on the darker side of Gotham.  That is no...
