Gotham by Midnight #5 brings together Batman and The Spectre. The story is moderately interesting with the ghosts of Gotham's slaughtered Native Americans seeking justice from the Spectre. Since there is no tangible defence for the Euros here much of the issue is taken up with the idea of killing Corrigan, the Spectre's human host.

Ultimately a nun sacrifices herself in imitation of Christ to save the city. Either that works for you or it doesn't. For me given that the Spectre doesn't feel like it fits in a Judaeo-Christian context it wasn't satisfying.

The real standout though is the art by Ben Templesmith which is very reminiscent of early Sam Keith, a very exaggerated cartoon style with extremely bright colours.
