This all-new series features the bad girls of Gotham City! Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn are tired of playing by other people's rules regardless of which side of the law they're on. These tough ladies have a new agenda that's all their own, and they'll use any means necessary to pursue it. But can they get along and work as a team? And who will get hurt along the way? DETECTIVE COMICS and STREETS OF GOTHAM writer Paul Dini kicks off this brand-new ongoing series with amazing artwork by Guillem March (JOKER'S ASYLUM: POISON IVY, GOTHAM GAZETTE).

    Of course, any comic book featuring female lead is forever doomed to have an artist that knows how to highlight the female physique " or draw something that looks like what men idealize about womens bodies. March does a good job drawing women, but also backgrounds and male characters. His work is crispy and full of action. Hes capable of doing comedic facial expression and is a good storyteller. Did I mention that his women, although over sexualized, have reasonably real proportions? Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Chris Partin Jun 27, 2009

    I want to say I enjoy everything about this issue. I really want to, but I don’t. I can appreciate and respect the craft of it all. It’s well done. The writing is done well. The art is really good. I can’t take anything away from that. This is a well put together book, but it’s just not something I can read month in and month out. There is an audience for this series and I have a feeling that this creative team will make that audience happy every month. I’m just not part of that group. Read Full Review

    Having said all that, I feel the need to nevertheless point out that Gotham City Sirens still deserves a chance. Because it's Dini at the helm and he's handling these three characters, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he'll be able to deliver some worthwhile stories down the road. As it stands now, though, this series hardly feels necessary, even for a fan of Dini's past work with these three stars. Let's hope he'll be able to come up with some worthwhile explanation for their alliance, other than they all look curvaceous when drawn by March. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Erik Norris Jul 2, 2009

    Gotham City Sirens is a good read. Time will tell if it really has the legs to stand next to the other important Bat-titles, but for a fun buddy romp with three of the sexiest ladies in the DCU, you can't beat this. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jun 25, 2009

    Gotham City Sirens #1 isn't bad, but it isn't all that good either. Guillem March's work is the obvious highlight, but nice artwork can only take a series so far. Paul Dini's got a solid concept to work with. Now he just has to do something interesting with it. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 24, 2009

    Unfortunately, Dini doesnt seem to do much new with the characters (especially Ivy and Harley), and along with the strong links to Batman stories I (a) havent read and (b) dont care about, it made for a lackluster reading experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 25, 2009

    "Gotham City Sirens" should be the hot new book at DC, but this first issue is almost instantly forgettable. Hopefully future issues will have some pep to them. I want to like this book, but I feel like no one involved is giving it their all. Read Full Review
