    This is a genuinely new take on Gotham, and even Joker's backup " written as a letter to an advice columnist " works surprisingly well. It's. looking like an excellent relaunch. Read Full Review

    Mother Panic: Gotham A.D #2 is a grounded and dismal tale of a Gotham worse off than the one we know. In it all, Panic is just trying to find her mother with the help of some notorious rogues. Between an interesting narrative and great artwork, this one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Apr 25, 2018

    Despite its shortcomings, none of which are systemic issues, Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. has proven to be an excellent continuation, at least so far. The renumbering is superfluous, to be sure, but Houser is making good on some really interesting ideas, backed up by a fantastic art team. It may not be for everyone, but it is exactly my shit, which Ill take wherever I can get it. Read Full Review

    We're world-building, folks... and having a pretty good time doing it.  This All-New, All-Different Gotham makes you want to learn everything there is to know... and Mother Panic, excessive f-bombs and all, isn't a half-bad tour guide. Read Full Review

    The current story arc is too early in the making for me to form a strong opinion, but the alternate universe idea is a big help. Until her roll on this Earth is determined, I'm willing to keep an open mind. She seemed redundant and wasted on Earth 1, so let's hope for something different in her new world. Read Full Review

    I love the darker and richer tones used in this series. It makes the bright suit of Violet's stand out even more. Having her character so starkly different from the world and other vigilante stories we've known is such an interesting idea. It shows us how alien this world really is. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of great scenery and interesting designs to take in, but the ride itself is lackluster so far. Read Full Review
