    The Ballad of Olive Silverlock part three is all about Maps. So naturally, you're going to have a blast with this installment. But it's not just Maps being Maps that makes this issue so great. It's her wonderful and hilarious reunion with Damian Wayne that really made this issue stand out for me. Besides the antics, this story also give Maps some serious emotional baggage going into the finale, making the coming climax much more interesting than a simple case of saving Olive. Now, because of Maps' change of heart, we are left wondering whether or not Maps even think Olive is worthy of being saved…. Read Full Review

    The art iswonderful, and shows what can happen when DC Editorial is willing to let go ofthe wheel and allow the creative team free reign to be creative. So it doesntsurprise me when the books that DC exerts the greatest control over " highprofile properties like Superman and Batman " are suffering, while lesser knowntitles such as Gotham Academy areflying under the radar and demonstrating how great comic books can be.

    I am going to give this issue a good rating because, for all the books problems, it is my absolute favorite by a lot and I'm just an idiot that way. Read Full Review

    With all the positives that I did find with this issue I'm still glad that it's ending with the next one. This one succeeds because of Maps and Damian – and that's hard to say considering I generally dislike Damian as a whole. The story has gotten so weirdly convoluted, the supporting cast reduced to even more minor roles, and the academy itself often just a weird footnote in events, that the thrill of the book has mostly disappeared. The characters are still a draw and even with Maps acting out of character there are still some really good flashes of fun to be had. This issue has more going for it than a lot of this semester overall but that's damning it with faint praise. Read Full Review

    This book should be coming to its ultimate point, but it's still fumbling around in the dark. Maps and Damian make a cute couple, but most of this issue is snoozers. One more shot, fellow Academites! (That's what Gotham Academy fans are called, right?) Read Full Review
