    1. Jim Gordon gets shot three times in the back on his birthday – Gothamites party hardcore! Catwoman’s at the scene of the crime. Whodunit - and whydunit?! Batman: Officer Down is another in a seemingly endless line of godawful Batman comics I’ve been reading lately. I sure can pick them, eh? For no reason, when Gordon’s shot, Batman stands by his bed like a lemon for almost the entire book while the Bat-family and the GCPD look for Catwoman who obviously didn’t shoot him! But they still [...]

    2. 3.7 stars. It's good drama with a set of vivid characters! Beside the action scenes, this volume also contents a lot of emotional dramas and I quite like it!PS: I just have to wonder are Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon an item? Or at least they used to be?

    3. Batman: Officer Down is a very different take on a Batman story. The main theme being how little Batman is involved. It begins with a terrific premise. The gunning down of a police officer in Gotham. The key being that the Officer Down is Commissioner Jim Gordon, shot three times in the back.What follows is the investigation and manhunt for the shooter. The effect of the crime on the police force, the superheroes and eventually on Gordon himself. This tale is a crossover event through the Batman [...]

    4. I picked this one up for it's continuity with the Birds of Prey series of the time, but it does hold up fine as a stand alone book.The police procedural elements were good, but the Batman opting for bedside vigil instead of leading the hunt was a surprise.The big reveal of the shooter and the motive was certainly believable , but in a book full of costumed vigilantes it actually became quite banal. (Really? That was it?)Although a good story, it does feel inconsistent throughout, but that is sur [...]

    5. This comic was really well done. The story line, the illustrations, the emotions. All of it put together made an excellent comic that you could just sit back and enjoy. I loved the loyalty that was displayed and also the strong bonds of friendship. It was all wonderful and exciting to read. I'm glad to have read this comic, since it gave me a greater idea about the strong bonds that James Gordon has with both his fellow police officers and the Batman. I recommend reading this comic as it is a gr [...]

    6. Actual rating: 3.5 stars. I only read this because a Birds of Prey issue was included and while I have no idea which issue that was because there's no mention of the Birds of Prey in this volume, I did like this. It's a really interesting story arc.

    7. This book had a promising premise. Commissioner Gordon is in many ways the heart and conscience of the Bat-oriented portion of the DC Universe. Making the mystery his shooting a multi-title crossover event should have made for memorable storytelling. Unfortunately, multiple authors and artists make for an uneven effort which does not work as a standalone trade paperback. The police procedural elements of this story arc are well done. Rucka and company effectively humanize crime in Gotham by popu [...]

    8. This is an unusual and enjoyable Batman comic for a number of reasons. First, Batman is rather peripheral to the story. The story: Commissioner Gordon gets shot in the back 3 times and Catwoman is the only witness. Second, because it's the Commish the cops of Gotham are very much the focus of this arc, as are Batman's posse, though to a much lesser extent; it is much more of a detective story. Third, there is no real villain. No villain in the normal sense of that word as it might have normally [...]

    9. I originally read this in issue form when it was coming out and after rereading it all these years later, I'm surprised at such a huge event involving such bad art. Many of the chapters had art from artists who weren't normally on the books and it showed. Characters looks' varied greatly from chapter to chapter and some panels were amazingly bad. The plot however was fantastic. The idea of Commissioner Gordon being gunned down and the reactions of those closest to him was great. I didn't love Ba [...]

    10. While I was hanging out at Borders with my sister, I sat down and read this one. This trade paperback follows a story arc in which Commissioner Gordon is shot, forcing Bruce Wayne/Batman to face the possible death of one of his dearest friends. The dark character studies which this premise allows provide the primary meat to this book. We get to see a Batman whose grief paralyzes him into inaction, and a Barbara Gordon who must make the choice between the law and revenge. Furthermore, we learn mu [...]

    11. A strong story that makes me miss--more than ever--when events could be short and contained. It's a simple set-up: Jim Gordon gets shot in the back, and the Bats take it upon themselves to figure out whodunit, led (of course) by Babs. We also get to see the PD side of things, as Gotham Central was going on at the time, so we get to see the MCU respond to their boss getting taken down. I liked it a lot. The art was iffy in a couple of places, and Robin literally had one line in his own title book [...]

    12. Si algo destaca a Greg Rucka y Ed Brubaker - quienes firman esta serie - es su habilidad para entregar tintes novelescos a sus guiones. Particularmente en Batman, donde su amor por el noir se traduce en buenos pasajes e historias agridulces como la presente, con un Gordon en su hora más negra mientras la policía y los vigilantes buscan desesperadamente al culpable. Buenos diálogos, mejores pasajes y el aparente cierrte de una etapa; magnífica.

    13. A great story, even if it was more GCPD-focused than on Batman. And the art throughout the issue was just in the style that I prefer in comics. Definitely recommended, and not only for the Bat fans. I also recommend looking up Batgirl #12 (March 2001) which is a tie-in to this arc, but it wasn't collected into this volume (it's not a necessary read, but adds Batgirl's feelings).

    14. This is much stronger than the first tpb in the series, combining as it does a solid mystery, some moving character scenes/development, and an emphasis on the kind of "normal" crime that has made contemporary Batman stories rise above many of their peers. The art is also superior to the first volume, though one issue--illustrated by the Pander Brothers--stood out as weaker than the rest.

    15. Quite a decent story spanning 7 episodes, with some good artwork along the way, let down only by chapter 2 which has terrible art and maybe chapter 7 which is somewhat below par in places. All in all though, a good, dark and reasonably grown-up Batman graphic novel.

    16. The artwork either work or didn't work for me at times. Also why is batman just standing. Doing nothing. Not even having a monologue about anything related to him. Well truth is I only read this because I had read Gotham Central. An awesome comic series about the police force in Gotham.

    17. This was a great graphic novel i actually thought cat woman shot the commissioner!Well of course batman will blame anything on himself but the rest was really good definitely.

    18. An extremely well done Batman story which shows the complexity and relationships between the characters. It's a must read for Batman fans.

    19. Odd twist at one point, but otherwise a good batman adventure. Mainly focuses on Gordan and Batman's sidekicks, but overall a good collection with a complete arc covered.

    20. 4 stars if you add and read the great epilogue with Two-face in Detective Comics #755. Lucky it was added in the italian edition of this volume that I own. :D
