    MOTHER PANIC: GOTHAM A.D. #6 brings resolution to the pain and restlessness of Violet Page. The ending seems to giver her a chance at happiness with a makeshift family, along with a renewed purpose. The plot will satisfy every open question, the art is stunning, and the characters will warm your heart. Saying goodbye isn't so hard with an ending like this. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Aug 22, 2018

    Jody Houser outdoes herself this issue of Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. (2018-) #6. The scripting reaches a new level of intensity, with moments of extreme anguish, emphasized by the poetic-like words.Tommy Lee Edwards and Ibrahim Moustafa's art continues to dazzle, as Gotham A.D. remains gritty and dark.

    Both the most satisfying ending and overall-read of this second "season" of Young Animal... and dare I say, the only one worth reading.  The creative team managed to craft a riveting story even under the pressures of cancellation/truncation. Read Full Review

    The art by Ibrahim Moustafa really was excellent for these last six issues. Moustafa and Houser really took it to another level. It's been a strange, wacky ride in the world of Young Animal. Read Full Review

    There's a lot happening in this issue, but she never loses sight of the emotional core of the story even as the events happen a mile a minute. Read Full Review

    The final chapter of Mother Panic provides readers with three climaxes, struggling to tie up every significant plot thread in the series and deliver a possibly permanent conclusion for the character. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bob Moriarty Aug 23, 2018

    Mother Panic, along with the rest of the Young Animal imprint was planned with a beginning and an end in mind but saying goodbye is still bittersweet. To say the book and its characters were quirky would be an understatement, but Jody Houser and Ibrahim Moustafa worked really hard to get inside the minds of those characters and to show us a part of Gotham that we had never seen. As send-offs go, Violet Paige got one that was better than most. But I cant help but hope (and maybe even believe) that there are big plans for Mother Panic coming down the pipe. Violet deserves another shot at the big leagues. One thing is for certain, there will always be room for a vigilante with an edge in Gotham. Read Full Review

    The wrap up seems a little forced as there are still many unanswered questions in both of Violet's realities. About the best we can do is hope for another series with Mother Panic. She's proved to be more interesting as her own person rather than a fill in for the Dark Knight. Perhaps, she'll get her due down the road. Read Full Review

    Futureissues (assuming this isnt the end of the series, which it easily could be)should accelerate the action and lead Violet Paige in her quest for vengeanceagainst Gather House and it represents. Id appreciate seeing a balls-out,no-holds-barred assault on the villains Violet despises. There is no need todraw it out, even to make the six-issue trade. Just let the war last that long,until Vi is the only one standing. Read Full Review
