I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

Now THIS was INCREDIBLE! This was a spin-off of the Batman Eternal weeklies, and it captured the spiritual wickedness that was released into Gotham City when Arkham Asylum collapsed into oblivion. Seriously, what else can make this city any worse? Sins buried deep in the swamp around the city, that's what.

The story was simply well-written, delving into topics not normally seen in DC Comics: sin and judgment, prayer and sacrifice. It was presented well, with a exceptionally high creepiness factor. The artwork contributed to this, a style I normally don't like. In this rare case, it was essential to the book.

I was going to say that DC needs to keep this series going after the whole Multiversity event, but apparently the series is already cancelled. Bad decision, if you ask me. ( )

This TPB was a weird combination of stuff. It was partially a cop book, it’s about a division of the GCPD that’s been nicknamed the Midnight Shift. But then the cases that they take on are a curious mix of religious and supernatural cases all rolled into one.

And then there’s Detective Corrigan and the Spectre. I haven’t read a lot about either of them so I did find the TPB new as well as interesting.

The five demon monster things, where they came from, etc. Unfortunately I didn’t like the art at all, it was too scratchy and dark for my taste.

But, overall I thought it was a good TPB.

I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment. ( )
