    Colton, Pom, and Kyle get some important shine this issue as well, making it a balanced issue that is funny (courtesy of Maps), adventurous (courtesy of Pom and Colton), and serious (courtesy of Olive). Overall, Gotham Academy Second Semester will remind you the awesome craving of adventure you felt as a kid and have you eager for more. We're still seeing the pieces being set up for the end, but in the meantime, it's pretty fun. Read Full Review

    This is a great comic book, but this issue wasn't its best. There have been a few I just happen to have exactly what we need to get out of trouble scenes over the last few issues (I'm looking at you Colton) which has been disappointing. However, I expect this is just a bump in the road and I am hopeful we are in for a pair of exciting issues in the Gotham Academy finale. Read Full Review

    Gotham Academy in a lot of ways continues to just be "there" for me even amid the small moments that harken back to why I loved those first dozen or so issues of the original series so much. These are characters I want to spend more time with but they're also characters that I wish had more story worth being told to be involved with. This installment moves things a bit closer to the finale and dealing with Calamity, but it's more about place setting and getting the characters where they need to be rather than anything truly critical. The time with Cobblepot was decent but could have been so much more while the rest of it felt like they were treading water until they could reconnect the group. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jun 14, 2017

    As Gotham Academy: Second Semester winds down, the creators have the thankless task of trying to set pieces up for the finale. As such, issues like this one end up feeling like they're one part of a larger whole. There's nothing here that's inherently bad, either, it just feels incomplete. With Gotham Academy you know exactly what you're getting, and this issue is no different. That isn't a bad thing, I just wish it was better. Read Full Review

    Another day, another issue of Gotham Academy Second Semester that brings us virtually no closer to a satisfying conclusion to this school year. I mean, I suppose we'll be satisfied because it's finished, but that's like an actual school year. And I definitely failed this time. Read Full Review
