    Mother Panic #5 is another consistent issue. Houser brings the main characters together, establishing the "good" guys and the "bad" guys and creates battle lines for future issues. Read Full Review

    Overall, this run has become something really special, and the eighteen issues of Mother Panic might be the most consistently entertaining book in the Young Animal brand. Read Full Review

    If you were to tell me this time last year that Mother Panic would be a book I'd miss when it's gone... I'd have laughed in your face... then, maybe offer you my gig as Mother Panic reviewer.  This book has proven to get better with age, truly becoming a book worth reading. Read Full Review

    Mother Panic shifts between too much Batman and just the right amount of Batman. Mother Panic: Gotham A.D.has struggled more than it's previous incarnation. Despite having a little too much Bat-verse, this issue is quite satisfying because it insinuates questions about parenthood. Still, more Violet and less Bruce would make Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. a 5/5. Read Full Review

    Still,one of the great things about Mother Panic is that its not necessarilybeholden to mainstream DC continuity. The opportunities are endless, to createengaging characters and tell compelling stories that might not be suitable forother titles. I hope DC Editorial recognizes that potential, and can avoidsimply telling yet another super-herostory. Read Full Review

    One last design on the final page is a great reveal and could lead to a more satisfying finale, but this penultimate chapter is prepared to end the series on more of a whimper than a bang. Read Full Review

    Overall the issue is decent for a setup to the climax of issue 6. The conclusion was predictable with how everything in the story moved. The art and story were mostly filler to get everything set up for the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bob Moriarty Jul 26, 2018

    Mother Panic has been an interesting romp through a Gotham that we've rarely had the chance to see. But a meandering stroll down sunny streets as started to feel like the frantic stampede of a tourist who suddenly realizes they're lost. The next issue needs to right the ship or things are in danger of really falling apart. Read Full Review
