Arkham Institute has been branded a place of healing, but the horror that lurks behind its walls makes the old asylum look like a tea party. Will Violet Paige be able to rescue her mother from the Collective's clutches, or will a certain artiste spoil her chances? And what has happened to Dr. Quinzel?!

    This is an extremely technically well executed issue especially in terms of plot. It pays off not only advancing the story and raising the intrigue, but it reads so easily and and has a completeness to it not often found in comics today. It's like seeing the painter's brushstrokes while being consumed by the whole painting. Read Full Review

    This issue of MOTHER PANIC: GOTHAM A.D. brings even more of the classic Gotham characters into the fold, and it's extremely exciting. Violet goes a little further down the rabbit hole into Arkham Institute, and has a lot to face there. The plot is thrilling, the characters are vivid, and the art is extremely impressive. This is a very solid third issue, and it doesn't look like this team is letting up at all. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately now announced to be ending after only six issues, Gotham A.D., the reinvention of Mother Panic's core concept continues to be one of the best books in the Young Animal line. Read Full Review

    It feels as though Mother Panic is finally coming into her own... just as the rug is getting nyoinked out from under her.  A very good issue... enjoy it while it lasts! Read Full Review

    This is an excellent book that will be going away. I hope it gets revived on some form or another. Read Full Review

    I love that the art team has remained in place. Since the advent of DCs Rebirth,many art teams have come and gone, or rotated around so that no given issue promises a consistent visual appeal. I grew up in an era when art teams stuck around for YEARS, not a handful of issues and then moved on. I appreciate the commitment Ibrahim Moustafa and Jordan Boyd have made to this series.

    None of the dialogue sings, but the action in this issue, specifically one showdown sings. It's an improvement and the pages look as great as ever. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bob Moriarty May 24, 2018

    Like the name of the story implies, this very different look at Gotham is captivating in its own right. The added drama surrounding Violet Paiges family promises an epic as long as these creators havent bitten off more than they can chew. Read Full Review
