No one ever said detective work was Violet's strong suit, but she's never been one to let details get in her way. Mother Panic's got a hunch about the new murderer in Gotham, but are impulsiveness and a thirst for vengeance really the right tools to stop a killer?

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manny Gomez Jun 28, 2017

    All the Young Animal books are great in their own way, but Mother Panic may be the best way for regular readers of the DCU to wade into these waters. This is a more quiet issue than usual for the series, but don't let that stop you from picking it up. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Arpad Okay Jul 3, 2017

    In that twisted truth, the real deal can be found. Everything the series has established thus far is culminating, approached from a new and unexpected angle. Mother Panic is a tour de force, and the eighth issue is its best chapter yet. Spare and sharp action beats, an unshakable foundation of character study, a comic too damn good for this world.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 28, 2017

    This book has a unique voice and sits in a special place on the fringes of the DC Universe, yet far enough off center that it can be different. Violet's character is complex and damaged, and every issue lets the reader in a little further. Pushing forward, how much can the reader take? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 4, 2017

    Gotham without the usual caped crusaders is the Gotham that I want to see and Jody Houser is delivering. Her work with John Paul Leon is spot on here as it delves into more of how she's changing in who she is and how she fights in this city and I keep wishing it could sustain a twice a week format. The growth here with the supporting cast is really fun to watch, including some wonderfully done time with our favorite rat catcher, but it's Violet that's the draw and understanding how far she'll go and what she'll do is what keeps me reading. There's not a lot of costume time here but that's not a bad thing. It's Violet under it all and understanding her more ups the understanding of her in the costumed role. Very good stuff here.

    Weird Science - Chris Jun 28, 2017

    Our Violet is maturing right before our very eyes.  No longer is this a character who causes my stomach to churn.  A healthy dose of altruism and a better understanding of her backstory were just what the doctor ordered to make this a book I'm actually looking forward to from month to month.

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Jul 3, 2017

    If you've either been holding out or possibly bailed out a few issues back, it could well be time to give "Mother Panic" a try. Ironically, in slowing down the action, things have picked up speed. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jun 28, 2017

    Meanwhile,in our back-up feature yet another bat-themed vigilante arrives on the scene,but for how long? Gotham Radio may be close to unmasking the Dark Knight. Imreally enjoying the return of a back-up feature to comic books. More writersshould be challenged to write in this compressed format, and compelled todeliver in a handful of pages what they may be accustomed to delivering in anentire comic. Read Full Review
