Keystone Kops in Gotham Central Sale at ComiXology

Gotham Central 29While the announcement makes no mention of the “Gotham” TV show launching soon, ComiXology is running a Gotham Central sale with over 100 issues of the series and other Batman books discounted to 99 cents each. That includes the 4-part “Keystone Cops” story in Gotham Central #28-31, which sees Detectives Montoya and Allen pursuing a case to Keystone City and the captive Dr. Alchemy, who may be the source of a bizarre chemical weapon used on a Gotham City police officer. Keystone City Detectives Chyre and Morillo and Rogue profiler Ashley Zolomon guest star as well.

With any luck there will be a Flash sale in the coming weeks as well, especially since DC stopped releasing the 1987-2008 series without finishing it. (Most of the Geoff Johns/Howard Porter run is missing, plus for issues of Waid/Augustyn).

Gotham Central in Keystone City

I just noticed that last month’s hardcover release of Gotham Central: On the Freak Beat includes the “Keystone Kops” storyline. When a fellow police officer is exposed to a mad scientist’s death trap and starts mutating, Gotham detectives Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen travel to Keystone City to consult the imprisoned Dr. Alchemy.

The hardcover line is following a different breakdown than the original trade paperbacks did. The story was previously collected in the paperback Gotham Central: The Quick and the Dead.
