Tommy Elliott, a.k.a. the villainous mastermind known as Hush, has escaped the confines of Batman's headquarters and is wreaking havoc throughout Gotham City all under the guise of Bruce Wayne. Will the loose assemblage of Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn be enough to stop the madman's rampage? Or are Gotham's femmes fatales doomed to fail before they even begin?

    Comics Bulletin - Alex C. Lupp Jul 30, 2009

    Guillem Marchs art provides a lot of character, mostly because of his talent in depicting facial expressions. He succeeds in capturing a lot of nuances there, plus, his panels can be dynamic and innovative, which really makes some pages shine. His work has a slightly manga feel to it as it bounces from overtly sexy to blatantly comic and that certainly helps the book as well. Its very promising stuff, but too many times falls prey to odd proportions. The female bodies he depicts look odd occasionally, overwhelmed by unnatural curves and limbs that dont quite connect properly. It can be distracting and I can only hope that practice will make perfect in the long run. Read Full Review

    Pick Gotham City Sirens #2 up for the artwork. The story is nothing special. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jul 23, 2009

    All of the characters act consistently with previous portrayals, and the plot is interesting, and, no doubt, many readers will walk away satisfied, but the lacking energy or indefinable quality that elevates a book from workmanlike to great or brilliant is missing. Guillem March draws his ass off, but even that can't save this issue from being completely forgettable once that final page has been read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 22, 2009

    Seeing as how this series shares such a strong tie to Dini's far superior Batman: Streets of Gotham, it's even more baffling to think about its myriad failures as a comic. It's becoming clearer by the issue that the planning process behind Gotham City Sirens started and ended with "let's put these three hot super-babes in the same book!" If that's the type of thing that interests you, by all means go ahead and give it a shot. If you prefer more substance in your Batman comics, stick to the franchise's other titles. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 23, 2009

    This series clearly has what it takes to be one of the best books out there. It has one of the best writers in the business at the helm, features a great cast, and has a futuresuperstar artist attached. Unfortunately, none of this seems to be coming together thanks to odd characterization, still developing artwork, and some extremely odd plot choices. This could eventually be a can't miss book, but its got a long way to go before it can live up to its potential. Read Full Review
