    Much like its principle cast, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy has read very much like a book working to come together. With issue #3 is appears the series may have finally done so, Chynna Clugston-Flores and Rosemary Valero-O'Connell at last pulling back the veil on their eclectic tale. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Aug 11, 2016

    I don't think this is a bad comic and the plot itself is good but one of my pet peeves is when the art gets in the way of telling a story. I don't mind bad art, or even experimental art that fails. But interfering with the plot and the connection to the characters is a no-no in my book. I absolutely loved issue #1 and had similar problems with issue #2 as I do here. On the strength of the promise of this book I am going to hold off one more time really hammering the score. At least this mini reminds me of how much I miss the main Gotham Academy book and the real Olive, Maps, Pom, Kyle and Colton. They can't come back soon enough. Read Full Review

    It pains me to say this, but the Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy crossover isn't nearly as great as it could be. We're halfway through the mini-series and we're still setting the scene. It's like they came up with a supernatural story that could, arguably, bring the two groups together, but then didn't think up anything for anybody to do. What little charm we do get is a lot of fun, but this issue is all about shuffling everybody into position and explaining a bunch of backstory. Read Full Review

    There isn't too much that can really be said about this issue of Lumberjanes Gotham Academy. The whole issue is very slow-paced and exists just to give the villain a tragic back story that is not even slightly tragic. It feels like we are meant to feel pity for her then she really needs a worse life. The style of humour of this issue is an odd one. Both visually and tonally it seems to be a series aimed at children yet at the same time is filled with 80s pop-culture references. This issue seems really hard to place this issue. It adds a lot to the villain's story, but the appeal of this series is the two groups interacting. So with this issue where it expands on a villain that's new to both series, it just seems to conflict with that appeal. Read Full Review
