*Clearance Corner: Three complete and self-contained mini-series starring the Gotham Guardian in this week’s Brucie Bonus – sorry, Clearance Corner. Gotham Nights II, from 1995, is a follow-up (though not a direct sequel) by John Ostrander and Mary Mitchell to their previous GN series, focusing on the citizenry of Gotham, integrating the everyday lives with the extraordinary events which follow the Caped Crusader. Intelligent and thoughtful, it’s quite a contrast to the two Batman: Odyssey series, from 2010 and 2011, in which legendary creator Neal Adams writes and draws… those. The good news? His artistic skills are undiminished. The illustrations are superb, emotive and breathtaking. The bad news? The script is insane ranting gibberish. No, really. I can’t even describe it. Must be seen to be disbelieved. Don’t ask, just look at the pretty pictures. To clear up any possible bewilderment, Odyssey was originally solicited as a 13-part series, but after six issues, Neal had to go and have a lie down, so despite the strapline saying ‘of 13’, it ended with #6, to be taken up again with series 2, #1 the next year. So: complete four-issue Gotham Nights II, 6-issue Odyssey I, and 7-issue Odyssey II, all around VF/NM, yours for £20 (UK postage if required will be an additional £3.50). Bargainacious!
