The monsters have united in the aftermath of Melmoth's attack, but one of their own has gone missing! Andrew Bennett, a.k.a. I, Vampire, has gone straight to the source of the evil that threatens the city, but the fanged one finds attacking Melmoth's acolytes is biting off a little more than he can chew. Frankenstein leads Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca, and the mysterious Red Phantom on a chase through the Gotham underground to try to rescue Bennett and shut down whatever Melmoth has planned next. But will their showdown at the Gotham City Zoo attract the attention of any of Gotham's other protectors? Batwoman, perhaps?

    Gotham City Monsters #3 (Orlando, Nahuelpan, Mulvihill, Napolitano) continues to be criminally under-rated and under-sold. With sharp storytelling and beautiful art,GCMis one of the top DC books today. Read Full Review

    Gotham City Monsters #3 doesn't disappoint and the pace gets a bit quicker as Melmoth pulls a disappearing act, forcing the GC Monsters to become a more formidable team together. Here's hoping this is more than a six issue run as this team deserves to be either in the pages of Batman on a regular basis, or as another Suicide Squad or yet again, part of JL Dark! Time will tell, so buy those issues! Read Full Review

    I think Orlando's building to something special here, but it might be largely impenetrable to all but the most hardcore fans. Read Full Review

    Gotham City Monsters #3 is a step in the right direction primarily since Orlando nails down his villain's personality and motivation. Read Full Review

    Gotham City Monsters still has its dark charm to keep it going, but the chemistry between the six characters simply isn't clicking enough to support the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 13, 2019

    A wacky team of inhuman beasts killsother creatures. This whole thing feels like a joke without a punchline. So it'snot unlike the Archie comic strip, ina way. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Nov 15, 2019

    It's a shame. The first issue of Gotham City Monsters was substantial, but so far, it has just deteriorated as each new chapter comes out. The book is slated for six installments; the scariest thing about this horror-themed miniseries might just be how bad the final issue will be if it continues in this direction. Read Full Review

    By the end of the book, I was half asleep. There is a tease at the end for Batwoman being in the next issue. Hopefully she can save this book. Right now, help is sorely needed. Read Full Review
