David Gabriel is a moron for saying Diversity is at fault for the Marvel Sales slump; that's not the case, that has never been the case -- I blame bad writing and events, and this comic is a perfect example of bad writing.

Do you want to buy a comic that is basically 22 pages of "How do you do, fellow kids" and "YASSS QUEEEN"? Then this comic is perfect for you -- it's also perfect if y more

This is a filler issue, though not a bad issue, not a lot really happens. You do get insights into the aftermath of superman reborn in this issue, but the plot in this issue seemed to be floating until the last several pages of the book, wherein it sets up a new story arc. other than that this is pretty underwhelming. plus points for the kent family cameo.

I love the series as a whole, but gotham academy second semester's pacing has been off the rails lately, this one is no different. It reveals so much too quickly, that i wasn't as into it as much as i hope it should have.
