No More Commissioner Harvey Bullock in Batman #100

Harvey Bullock first appeared in Detective Comics #441 in 1974 and was created by Archie Goodwin and Howard Chaykin before reappearing in 1983 from Doug Moench and Don Newton in Batman #361. He was also one of the lead characters in the TV series Gotham, played by Donal Logue.

Originally a corrupt cop, he ended up becoming a trusted, if loudmouth, part of commissioner Jim Gordon's Gotham police crew and is made detective. Recently, as Gordon was mentally infected by The Batman Who Laughs, Bullock took over as Commissioner Bullock of the GCPD, with a more aggressive relationship with Batman than Gordon did, and puts the Bat Signal into storage.

However, in tomorrow's Batman #100, it appears that he, and the rest of the GCPD are ordered to close down Barbara Gordon, returning to the role of Oracle, who is using the GCPD bandwidth to organise the Batfamily to fight the Joker clowns as part of The Joker War.

Which is just too much for Bullock, so he hands in his badge. And goes rogue… who will back him? Who will fall? Harvey Bullock is happy to throw his detective badge and his gun away when dealing with other police on the scene… but where does he go now?
