Great book. Darker than I thought. Some parts are shocking. Probably not a good gift for kids under 14years old.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My All-Time Favorites! April 15 2011
By Brent Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Streets of Gotham is a Batman series that is willing to tell Batman stories from different characters' viewpoints. This volume starts out with a story about the Huntress and Man Bat, that is both exciting and deep. Next, Batman (Dick Grayson) and Robin (Damian Wayne) investigate the disappearance of some children with some narration by a new young super hero. There's a break in that story for another mystery narrated by Batman and Jim Gordon. The final story returns to the missing children, narrated by Robin and Colin (our new young super hero), and featuring the villain Zsasz.

The Highlights: Incredible writing. Incredible art. Very dark and moody. Both writing and art are top notch! It's great to have a little more variety in the types of stories and viewpoints than the average Batman stories. I also especially love the story of Damian and Colin. Damian has had a challenging life since leaving his mother and losing his father. It's great for him to find another you person he can actually be friends with.

Things to Consider: This collection does contain some more adult content and issues. There is some language, Batman helps a prostitute (who appears in her underwear), and Robin's battle with Zsasz has a lot of blood. I didn't think these elements were over the top or gratuitous, but this book is not ideal for younger readers.

I could go on and on about how impressive this volume is, but the best thing you can do is get your hands on a copy and find out for yourself!

4.0 out of 5 stars Buckle up Bat-Fans!! Dec 7 2010
By GrimLockz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Batman comics are responsible for some of the best storylines in the industry and "Batman: Streets of Gotham Volume 2" is no exception to that belief. Chris Yost, of X-Men fame, begins by weaving a psychological web through the eyes of the Huntress as she battles the Man-Bat on the roof tops of Gotham in an unpredictable standalone story. Afterwards, the comic focuses on Batman and Robin's investigation into the disappearances of orphans, leading to a narrative as intriguing as it is grotesque. "Batman: Streets of Gotham Volume 2" continues the Batman Reborn storyline expanding on Dick Grayson's character as he attempts to fill the Caped Crusader's cowl. Nevertheless, the book allows the casual reader, who hasn't kept up on the Batman mythology or the events of Final Crisis, to simply jump in and enjoy a good Batman tale. "Batman: Streets of Gotham Volume 2" is a must read for Bat-Fans or anyone who enjoys action packed detective drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Dini is in top form Dec 4 2010
By Ryan C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Continueing right along from Heart of Hush, Dini and Nguyen don't miss a beat. Art is top notch, story and characters are deep and interesting. Even the stand alone stories are great little breaks to the story. This the rare case where I read monthly AND collect trades. Brava.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another grim Gotham City book! July 6 2012
By S. Penrose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Streets Of Gotham book does such a great job of showcasing the different dirty corners of Gotham. Whether its an embittered priest who runs into Man-Bat and Huntress or the despicable Zsasz, its very much a part of a larger character, Gotham City. The art again was good and Dini, as always, and Yost did a great job with the plot/dialogue. The Abuse storyline didn't seem to be going anywhere until it connecting with Damian and then it was great. Another great book!
4.0 out of 5 stars Stories from the streets Jan. 8 2012
By Sam Quixote - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With Bruce Wayne lost to the world, Dick Grayson dons the cowl of Batman with Damian at his side as Robin and a host of allies, to keep peace on the streets of Gotham. But with Batman temporarily gone, chaos has erupted and Gotham is in as much peril now as it ever was. Cue Man Bat, Black Mask, a series of abducted children, the psychotic Zsasz, a jealous and murderous boyfriend of a call girl, and an unlikely new superhero called Abuse.

The "Streets of Gotham" series is a collection of short stories by a variety of writers showcasing the mini-disasters that happened when Batman left Gotham. And surprisingly, there are no duds in the stories here, they're all brilliant.
Chris Yost writes the title story, Leviathan, and does a fantastic job of turning expectations on their head. Huntress is after Man Bat who seems to have gone crazy - but has he?

Mike Benson writes "Hardcore Nights" where a seedy sex club has been building up a body count - Batman puts aside the cowl and decides to solve this mystery as Dick Grayson.

Paul Dini writes the other three stories starting with "In the Bleak Midwinter" and tells the sad tale of street children disappearing and an underground death club run by one Victor Zsasz. 12 year olds Damian and an orphan called Colin (with quite the secret) wind up in this club and must fight their way out.

What I like about these stories are that they're obviously Batman-themed but the Dark Knight plays a minimal role in all of them. Huntress and a priest are the heroes of the first story, Dick Grayson plays a bigger role than the Batman in his story, and Paul Dini's stories have Batman show up in the final couple of pages when the story is over - Damian and Colin are the heroes. And it's a credit to the writers that despite this lack of Batman that they're still gripping reads.

This book is a fantastic look at the heroes of Gotham who won't get entire books written about them but get a moment in the spotlight here nonetheless. "Leviathan" is a fine addition to the overarching Batman storyline and a must read for Batfans everywhere.
