I haven't been too hot on this current run of Detective Comics for a few key reasons, and with the Batman status quo change, I was a bit concerned about how this book was going to differentiate itself and stand out (one of its problems) when both it and Batman would be telling stories about the GCPD and the new Batman. Well, I know that I should be cautiously optimistic, but there's a glimmer of hope within these 8 pages.
CUT TO: Harvey, Renee Montoya (oh, hey!) and Nancy Yip speeding down the streets of Gotham in a van, avoiding what looks to be a giant mech hand coming crashing down on them, causing GorBat to catch their van before facing off against the mech... Apparently Gundam is super big in Gotham now? I don't know.
Harvey and Renee make it out of the van without Yip. Renee goes back, gun drawn, claiming she needs answers, but Harvey stops her telling her it's too late for that, as an explosion is set off in the distance, making Renee question what they just did.
Now back to Harvey and Jim's conversation, turns out that Harvey is asking Jim to basically help get his partner Yip killed, as she could bring down the entire department.
