    Bottom line, "Yearbook" captures the best of Gotham Academy - adventures you want to go on, characters you want to be friends with, and an oasis in Gotham that is nothing like anywhere else in DC Comics. Not as good as a full-adventure arc, but a nice change of pace in between them. Read Full Review

    While not quite as strong as the first installment, Gotham Academy does what I want for the most part in giving us different ways to view the series and its cast. I like each of the stories for what they bring to the table both in how we view the book and the artwork for it as each really shows just how different it can be. The stories themselves aren't at the best here and the first and third ones are just too short and without enough to really connect with to be truly engaging. The middle story has the most to it and it does a great job with the split art design and what it's trying to do, but it just lacked enough grounding to become fully invested in. But each of them are fun in their own way and as a small arc for a few issues – that you can easily skip if it's not your thing – it's adding some welcome color to Gotham Academy as a whole.

    This may be a book for kids, but it's also a book for anyone who is still a kid at heart. High mark for this school. Read Full Review

    GOTHAM ACADEMY #15 isn't bad, but it certainly feels skippable for all except die-hard fans of the series. The anthology format of the “Yearbook” arcloses a bit of its luster, and makes one wish the series' normal format would return sooner. Read Full Review

    Given enough time every book eventually has a lull period. Even though this issue (and the previous one) wasn't my cup of tea, I've been a big fan of this title from the start. That said, I look forward to next month's issue and hopefully getting back to business as usual. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Tyler Saldaa Feb 11, 2016

    Aside from the deep Batman references, I wonder where this is all going. Are these all random short stories or are they all building to something bigger? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Feb 12, 2016

    Better than part one, but still a far cry from what Gotham Academy has become synonymous with. While we aren't getting the mystery solving and character development that has been the rock this book was built on, this lot of yearbook stories seemed to have a greater tie to past events than the first round did. It was also made a little more clear what kind of stories the team was looking for, instead of just giving us a smattering of utter randomness. All in all, it's still a pretty mixed bag.
