Readers looking to catch up on "Gotham Central" stories they missed will get a chance. "The 'Half a Life' trade is coming out in a month or so," Rucka explained. "That's actually kind of cool. What they're doing is taking the first Montoya/Two-Face story I did way back in 'Batman Chronicles' and they're taking 'Detective Comics' #747, which was another Harvey/Renee story, the birthday story, and those are going to be in the same collection. So, you see sort of the progression into 'Half a Life.' Then the collection for 'Unresolved' and 'Soft Targets' is being assembled as well. So there are two more trades in the works. The first trade sold very well. So the hope is that the second and third will and that will lead to a fourth and fifth because Ed, Michael, and I have been going, 'Trade these! Trade these! People will read them in trades.'"So there you go. Two more Gotham Central trades in the works. Yay! You heard it here first, unless you heard it somewhere else.
