“Funny Money” is the back-up story for this issue of Batman: Gotham Knights. Part of the Batman Black & White series, these stories featured story and art by people who don’t normally work on the Batman books and feature black & white art. The stories are not necessarily set in continuity, giving these diverse creators more freedom.
“Funny Money” revolves around two treasury agents bringing Batman in to bust a counterfiting scam. Ellison explores both the detective nature of Batman as well as his ability to just scare the hell out of a man. Gene Ha, artist of Top Ten, provides a semi-realistic art and produces a very interesting image of Batman.
