Alan Grant

 Altogether lighter affair than V For Vendetta but interesting nonetheless. This graphic novel tells the story of one boys attempts to broaden the scope of justice in Gotham City - to "go after some real criminals" for a change. This brings him up against Gotham's shadowy enforcer of "the law", who is duly thrown into a crisis of conscience.

There is a rather confusing sub-plot with the forces of Evil that is probably more of a nod to the comic book formula than anything else. Intelligent dialogue keeps the plot interesting but this is probably best suited to younger readers.
