    Brian Ching and Kelly Fitzpatricks artwork, while not my usual fare, works here. The stylization of the characters, the colors, the way each scene is framed adds more to the story and the overall tone, in a similar way that Michael Avon Oemings work on Cave Carson does. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 1, 2017

    It's a fantastically fun book with a dark edge that complements my enjoyment of something like Bombshells and has me hoping that DC Comics explores more of these kinds of works. I just wish it was hitting on a different day of the week so it got more attention as a digital-first book. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Aug 16, 2017

    Given that this is a short introduction to a new world, there is more information we need to firmly jump in. Yet, I can say that I have confidence that this story is one that has a lot of potential and will be a nice departure from common cape comics while also holding true to their core mission all the same.

    Nothing too special but definitely solid. I don't mean any of that as a bash, it's nice, but I want more. I'm not ditching the series, but I'm crossing my fingers for Bennett to come on board. Hey, a girl can dream. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 16, 2017

    Comic fans, both old and new, sometimes complain that "the more things change, the more they stay they same."This can be a problem for comics and there is an argument to be made for and against books which are continuity laden. Books like Gotham City Garage, whilst not suited to any real longevity, serves the purpose of showing us what could be out there; what could be in the future. I for one applaud the worlds of else when, even if the page count is a tad on the slender side. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Zach Betts Oct 18, 2017

    Book number 1 follows our protagonist Kara as she learns some (possibly) disturbing things about not just herself, but also her father...Jim Gordon. Being faced with new threats that she has never faced, she seems to almost question her own existence in this world. New allies have potentially emerged for her though, as she moves forward into this new era. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 31, 2017

    Perhaps another reason it feels familiar is due to its similarities to DCs Bombshell series (though its hardly sooptimistic). It seems to be the trend these days to take established franchisesand reinvent them in a new - often darker - setting. Other examples includes Afterlife With Archie and Scooby-Doo Apocalypse. If youre a fanof such projects, Gotham City Garagecan be added to your pull list. Read Full Review

    In all, this is a good opening for DC's new digital-first comic series and should be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Overall, Gotham City Garage is a series with as much potential as DC Bombshells has, however the art style holds it back from being as good as it could be. Read Full Review
