Is The Riddler friend or foe? One thing's for sure he definitely isn't making life easy for Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn!

    If you have been missing the old school feel of comics, you could do worse than pick up Gotham City Sirens. This isnt a deep work of literature with symbolism and thematic resonance but it surely entertains. If this series falls through, a Dini-penned Riddler ongoing would be just as great a read. If you liked Dinis run on Detective Comics, pick this up. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 1, 2010

    This is a really fun story, but some of the mechanics are really lacking. It has been a while since we have seen a Paul Dini comic that I would consider unpolished, but this issue really fits the bill, unfortunately. It doesn't help that the art was a bit of a let down after Guillem March's solid improvement over the last few months. This one is still definitely worth reading and nearly made it to a Buy It verdict based on entertainment value alone, but I felt just a bit short overall. Read Full Review

    The issue wasn't a complete disappointment, but it certainly wasn't thrilling. I guess the moral of this story is be careful who you outbid on a property purchase. It seemed all too much like a throw away issue, like Dini is buying time to work on something really good. I hope that's the case. One can only hope that things will get back on track in the next issue where Ivy takes on a new job in STAR Labs. It already sounds like hilarity will ensue. Heres to hoping things get back on the cheesecake track. Read Full Review

    I'm half-tempted to start picking up "Gotham City Sirens" on a regular basis again, but now that I know my issue with the book was down to March, it's a little hard to muster up a lot of enthusiasm. Dini's scripts deserve a strong artist, like he has over in "Batman: Streets of Gotham." Still, it might be worth giving March another try as well. Until then, though, I'll certainly keep an eye open for any additional guest artists to come visit the lovely ladies of Gotham. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stacy Baugher Apr 7, 2010

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Eddie as a shamus. I think that it works well and makes sense for the development of the character. At the same time the whole concept of the Sirens is pushed right up to the point of disbelief with this issue when Commissioner Gordon not only does not arrest the lot of them, but lets them go just because he didn't want a fight? I can see Eddie reformed; he has spent quite a bit of time in Arkham. But the multiple murders and "eco-terrorism" acts that Poison Ivey has committed, and the numerous accessories to murder charges (among others) that MUST be out there for Harley after her time with Mr. J, not to mention Catwoman's known status as an international thief (has she ever served any time?) stretches the point and shows the blaring elephant in the room: eventually, one, if not all, of these characters will go back to crime. Sadly, I look forward to that more than anything. Can we take bets on how long after Bruce Wayne/Batman returns that this series last Read Full Review
