    LUMBERJANES/GOTHAM ACADEMY #2 is a winner of an issue that shows howwell these two properties mesh together. The creative team uses their vast knowledge of the characters to craft an engaging story that will remain pleasing to fans of both series. Read Full Review

    Project-Nerd - Anne Jul 26, 2016

    Overall, the comic series is developing nicely. I may not have enjoyed #2 as well as I did #1, but I still think it's worth the read. It's a fun comic with well written young characters of both genders, and it toes the line of the 'mystery-solving teens' genre without crossing over into any super-campy Scooby-Doo territory. I know I'm definitely looking forward to the release of Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy #3! Read Full Review

    The resulting read isn't as laugh-out-loud-funny as we'd expect from the pairing, but it is quite clever, Clugston-Flores playing the various cast against one another in inventive ways. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Emma Houxbois Jul 13, 2016

    In comics, were accustomed to subversion being a loud and upfront affair. Parody awash in neon glow, dialogue shouted directly at the reader. Gotham Academy and Lumberjanes have pursued a quieter, softer revolution and their synthesis carries that banner proudly. Instead of holding up a norm and tearing it asunder in the town square, the devious minds behind Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy have quietly instituted new norms in the hopes that we might align more closely to them as part of a peaceful transfer of power.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 16, 2016

    I want to like this crossover, I really do, but once again I'm struck with the idea that it's just not greatas the sum of its two parts. The two teams work well together, but the jokes just don't land with the same level of personality and finesse as they do in the regular series. And this issue is overloaded with exposition. The jokes have to squeeze their way into the cracks between the lengthy word balloons. Whether they're coming up with a plan, explaining all the clues and the mystery, and explaining the background, this issue is like a novel. So hopefully with exposition out of the way, and shenanigans set to begin, the rest of the mini-series excels. Read Full Review

    I was a little generous out of a sense of surprise and excitement when I gave issue #1 such a good ratinglast month so I am going to overcompensate the other way this time around. I am still totally on board with this mini, but I think there is room to improve over issue #2. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 16, 2016

    For a crossover between two comic books about a bunch of adventurous children, this issue is a real bore. Most of it takes place inside various log cabins and lodges, which does lend the thing a romantic, "Mount Airy Lodge" kind of feel. The artwork is great and compliments the characters perfectly, but there isn't much else of substance here that should entice even the most hardcore fans of either comic book involved.

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Pollock Jul 14, 2016

    I have been a little too negative in this review of Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #2 though. The comic isn't bad, it is actually fairly funny and entertaining. The comedy is nothing great, perhaps even a little clich at points but it still drove a chuckle out of me. It is actually entertaining and as supernatural mysteries go it seem to have the right idea, it is giving us just enough that we know whats going on but not exactly why and how. It's an enjoyable read that while not the most exciting story or visually impressive serves as a good distraction and works for all ages. got Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jul 24, 2016

    After a fun opening chapter, I was hoping for that same spirit this time around. Instead, we get an installment that focuses mostly on a large group whose members don't do much to distinguish themselves from one another, making what should have been fun and even silly come off as twee and even a little annoying. The lack of exposition in the first issue was a nice breath of fresh air; now, the lack of any sort of explanation as to who these kids are makes it incredibly difficult to get attached to any of them or care about their plight.
