"A little bit CW television series and a little bit Harry Potter, with a wee touch of manga-inspired storytelling. While that might all sound like an awful mix to some, "Gotham Academy" actually turns out to be a really fun and charming book."--"Nerdist.com" "As it turns out, it's spooky, weird and like nothing DC Comics has ever released before."-- "MTV News" "Slick, charming, and, dare we say it, fun." "Each turn of the page pulling you further into the book's beautifully imaginative world."--"IGN" "The book is quirky and cute, a Scooby Doo mystery wrapped in an anime shell and served with teenage angst on the side."--"Newsarama" "This series is so fun and inventive that it's hard to not love it. Cloonan, Fletcher and Kerschl understand how to make good -- no, "great" comics."--"Comic Book Resources "
