    Three fine stories with The Spectre, The Joker, and Deadshot. Nothing great, nothing bad. The art was all very good. Feels like filler before the Mr. Freeze arc which is foreshadowed at the back of each issue. Tomasi's heart doesn't seem to be in this run which is surprising given his other fantastic work for DC on books like Supersons, Batman and Robin, Superman Rebirth, and Green Lantern Corp. Hopefully he will be inspired soon.

    3 shorts in here. Spectre, Joker and Deadshot whilst a Mr Freeze story is building I guess for the next arc. The art has been pretty good but Ive really not been the biggest fan of this Detective comic run from Tomasi so far

    This volume is comprised of three short stories. The Spectre one is probably the best overall, even though it ends abruptly. The art is the real show-stealer with the Spectre story, really ringing of Kelley Jones' like vibes and older, '90s horror-style art that was really nice to see done so well. The Joker story is completely forgettable. Deadshot story is pretty solid, but not because of Deadshot, it's because of the fun banter throughout, especially Bruce with Lucius and Bruce with some new This volume is comprised of three short stories.

Overall, it's my favorite of the three Tomasi volumes on Tec so far, which unfortunately isn't saying a lot. I still have hopes this can reach his Superman Rebirth/ Batman & Robin levels, but we're not there yet.

    Basic plot: 3 Batman shorts featuring the Spectre, the Joker, and Deadshot. Meh. The Spectre short had lots of gore and violence, no real build or emotional impact. The Joker short was by the numbers, so it was colorful, but dull because of the predictability. The Deadshot short messed with my plausible deniability, considering the 2 old guys from freaking WWII living on an island were still able to help Batman do his thing, no one on the plane made any of the obvious deductions. Ugh. Just lazy w Basic plot: 3 Batman shorts featuring the Spectre, the Joker, and Deadshot. Meh. The Spectre short had lots of gore and violence, no real build or emotional impact.

Ugh. Just lazy writing. The art was ok through most of it, and best during the Joker short. There was a Mr. Freeze story starting in the background that looks intriguing, but it only got a couple of pages per issue to tease it out. Never thought I would be bored while reading a Batman book.

    3.5/5 A pretty weak volume, it feels like some kinda filler to the next event, which involves Mr Freeze and his wife. The first issues are really apart from the next event, while the remaining ones are a little bit more related, those explain in short terms the plans for Freeze.

    This wasn't very good if I'm being honest. I have the next volume already pre-ordered so I'll keep that one, however if it's not better then I'm not going to continue to follow the series anymore. Kind of disappointed because Tomasi's run on superman for rebirth was pretty good.

    This collection of unattached stories was just not very good. I was totally changing my mind with the final set of stories but then the author took one too many unbelievable steps and I am done. Art work at the beginning reminded me of Kelly Jones and some memorable moments made this not 1 star

    It's nice to know that even Batman can have his stories hijacked by the story lines of larger DC events. This book puts the character in a development holding pattern while waiting for the events of "Year of the Villain" to unfurl. The stories are decent, but there's just nothing special here.

Peter Tomasi penned the entire trade paperback. For the most part, it was written somewhat well, but in the end the trade paperback felt unfocused with no central theme and felt like it was untethered for continuity. The strongest of the three stories is perhaps the first one, where Tomasi uses a Batman story to write the origins of Jim Corrigan as the Spectre. Christian Duce (Detective Comics #1009–1011), Kyle Hotz (Detective Comics #1006–1007), and Doug Mahnke (Detective Comics #1008) penciled the trade paperback. For the most part the pencilers are rather distinct with each other, which make the flow rather disconcerting. Normally, it would be troublesome for me to have so many distinctive pencilers, but as this trade paperback is more of an anthology of three stories, the different pencilers – one for each story, didn’t bother me as much. All in all, Detective Comics: Greetings from Gotham is a mediocre continuation to what would hopefully be a wonderful series.

    Detective Comics Vol. 3 Greetings From Gotham collects Detective Comics issues #1006-1011 by Peter J. Tomasi. There are three stories collected in this trade. The first arc involves The Spectre enlisting the help of Batman to find his human host James Corrigan.

There are three stories collected in this trade. The first arc involves The Spectre enlisting the help of Batman to find his human host James Corrigan. I like Spectre stories and the moral differences between these characters is very thought provoking. I wish this arc was a little longer and explored these angles more. The second story is a one-off issue of the Joker hijacking an amusement park and holding everyone hostage. This issue was my least favorite but still had some fun moments. The next arc, and my personal favorite, involves a failed plane hijacking. Bruce Wayne and a group of billionaires are in route to a summit when they are hijacked midflight by Deadshot. A freak storm causes the plane to crash on a deserted island. Bruce is saved by two veteran American and Japanese soldiers whole have been stranded on the island since World War 2. Bruce must save the hostages from Deadshot with out his usual bat-gadgets. While this story isn't very original, it was extremely fun and I really liked Bruce's relationship with the WW2 veterans. It also reminded me a lot of Green Arrow. While none of these stories were Earth shattering, they were all fun. I liked this collection because it wasn't all doom and gloom. The date of Gotham or the world wasn't on the line. I enjoy some of these smaller scale stories.

    This book collects three separate stories told in Detective Comics 1006-1011. First up is a two part story in which Batman meets up with a hostless Spectre searching for Jim Corrigan and dealing with some spooky Spectre dopplegangers. This is an interesting enough story that held my interest although I thought the ending is a bit abrupt. Next up is a titular, "Greeting from Gotham" where the Joker is going around carnival menacing and murdering, and threatening to destroy the whole shebang. This i This book collects three separate stories told in Detective Comics 1006-1011. First up is a two part story in which Batman meets up with a hostless Spectre searching for Jim Corrigan and dealing with some spooky Spectre dopplegangers. This is an interesting enough story that held my interest although I thought the ending is a bit abrupt. Next up is a titular, "Greeting from Gotham" where the Joker is going around carnival menacing and murdering, and threatening to destroy the whole shebang. This is a pretty good Joker story. It's helped by being a one-shot tale as it avoids the sort of over-indulgence writers are tempted to engage in with these characters. Then we have a three-parter. Bruce Wayne is heading to a climate change summit. Unlike real life CEOs who, without any sense of irony, fly into these summits alone on their private jets, Wayne decides to Jet-pool. Unfortunately, they're hijacked by Deadshot and the plane is brought down. The story's decent up until that point, and then we find out that they've landed on a Pacific Island with an American and Japanese World War II soldiers who have been living on the island since the last days of the war. These characters are great, and they really make the story and the book for me. The art is decent and the writing's always good. My biggest complaint is Mr. Freeze. His presence is teased for four straight issues, he even appears on the cover of one, but he never shows up in this book. While he may be in the next book, Freeze should have been teased maybe once. Having him pad out all four issues is ridiculous. Still, I found this a fun read despite the cold reception I offered for the Freeze cameos.

    It’s okay. Three short stories. All decent, but nothing really to write home about. I did REALLY like the art for the spectre story though.

    I'm rather disappointed with this run, because Tomasi's done such great work before. The stories here all read like filler, although "Jungle Batman" was fun for a while.
