    Default Gotham Central Rebirth?

    This was my favorite Bat-book. Who would like to see it return? Especially with Rucka at the helm?
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Not interested. Now a Renee Montoya Question book with Jim and Bullock as supporting characters? That I'd be down for!

    Honestly a Renee Montoya Question book is the only 'Bat' book I'd want to see that doesn't have Cass.

    For me it would depend on the creative team and what they have to say with the book but somehow I don't think anyone will be able to capture what Brubaker and Rucka were able to do.

    Yes! But likely without Rucka. Honestly Central is the only thing I'd have faith in Bendis writing. If he could make it as good as when he did ALIAS for Marvel, then Central would be in great hands. One Condition though. Jim and ESPECIALLY Bullock better be major characters. Not just cameos and guests

    As long as Renee Montoya is the main character and Batman and continue to play only background roles, I'm interested.
    I think I'd rather have a Metropolis book starring Lois and the Daily Planet thought. GC has been done very well already.

    Yes. It’s long overdue for a comeback. This is the book Bendis would do a fantastic job at, but you wouldn’t hear me complain if Greg Rucka came back either. DC needs more books like Gotham Central, it was a great series. I’m still mad we got Gotham instead of a Gotham Central tv series.

    Bendis is far better writing down to earth stories where it makes sense with slow paced book and a lot of words than it does in spaces operas. Maybe it also just because I personally I prefer street level books and hope it will be Bendis' focus. A book focus on GCPD would be ideal.

    Edit/Update:

    Bendis posted his coming DC reading list on instagram. Gotham Central is there. This of cause doesn't mean he will write a new Gotham Central book however it doesn't make the changes smaller either.

    I really enjoyed Detective Comics during the New 52/DCYou when there was so much attention given to Bullock and the Gotham P.D. side of the story.

    Still wish DC would give us a new version of Gotham Central, even if it was just a regular back-up feature in Detective Comics.

    (If they did it as a back-up feature and had a good writing and art team for that, I might start buying Detective Comics again on a regular basis.)

    How likely is Rucka to do another regular DC book again in the near-future, even if it was just a monthly (as opposed to a twice-a-month) title?

    Rucka? No, thanks..

    One of the best runs of any mainstream comics, ever. Wouldn’t mind it making a comeback. Especially, if Rucka is at the helm.

    Rucka or Bendis or etc, hopefully it will be revived some day. I don't want Montoya Question, I want GCPD Montoya. Bullock, Montoya, etc.
    Thank you AMericA for votinG for chAnge.

    By the way, how much are King, Tynion, and the other Bat-writers actually using the GCPD in their Rebith Bat-stories these days?
