    (B-) 71% | Satisfactory Notes: A slice-of-life anthology, it's clip-show artificial, so indie superficial, just off-brand storytelling, and hardly beneficial.

    I flipped through this. I don't like when comic series decide to do a bunch of random short stories and I really hate when the art changes every fourth page. I want to go back to the main story and I want to stick with the main art. Ugh. I flipped through this.

    With this volume, Gotham Academy has been turned into an anthology series. The stories are mostly 4 to 6 pages long and leave little room for any character development or excitement. Feels like they are just limping along until cancellation at this point.

    Still enjoying this series. The premise is fun and exciting, and the characters are likable and well defined. That said, I found this volume a bit of a letdown. 3.5 stars, rounded down.

    2.5 Really uneven volume with some great stories and some not-so-great ones that ended up bogging down the book.

    Gotham Academy Volume 3 meanders. It's a collection of shorts with nothing really pushing the narrative as a whole. A definite departure from the first two volumes, and not one I was particularly fond of. The ever changing art styles did not help as most of them were rather weak, and while the idea of a "yearbook" of stories sounds cute in theory, it takes us away from the ongoing story for A WHOLE VOLUME. That's at least six months before we get back to normal :l Probably more! Gotham Academy Volume 3 meanders. It's a collection of shorts with nothing really pushing the narrative as a whole.

    There is a particular story tangent I enjoyed because of who was in it, and most of the collected issues are fun to read!

    Wow, I'd have to classify this volume as grossly (and shockingly) disappointing. The first issue is OK. It somewhat clumsily crosses over with the Robin War arc, but it's mostly understandable and it even offers some interesting setup of a new student with a secret and a promise of danger in the future. But then, I don't even know what the heck happened to the comic. It becomes a short story anthology by a number of different authors and artists.

It's not consistent and it's not particularly interesting. Meanwhile, it totally kills the flow of the comic's actual plot. A couple of issues in to this horrible "Yearbook" arc, I just gave up and skimmed through until it ended, and that's something that I almost never do with a comic, let alone one I paid for. There is an Annual at the end of the volume, and it's really quite clever, but it's way too late. And that's the end of the comic unless the much delayed Rebirth ever comes about. It's not just a disappointing volume of Gotham Academy, it's the horribly disappointing end, in which nothing of note happens. Wow.

    Won via GoodReads First Reads program. Gotham Academy is the DCU meets Harry Potter meets Scooby Doo. And if that doesn't get you pumped to read it, I'm afraid we can't be friends. The best part of this volume is that multiple artists are involved, giving different styles to each story. You really get the feel for the flashbacks, along with the main arc tying it all together as the gang goes over Maps' "yearbook" stories. I am kind of in love with this series.

It's the Batworld told by the civilians. Poor Olive with her hatred for the bat because of her mom, but also we meet villains, and hey, they're not so bad, they're just misunderstood. And since Batman is Mr. Gray Area, it's fun to see this from the perspective of teenagers. Love love love.

    Ok so this definitely wasn't my favorite of the Gotham Academy series. Here's what I did like: -The idea that we get to learn about their year at the academy through a yearbook. -We find out so much about characters that weren't previously introduced. -The friendship between all the characters. They've come a long way from the first volume. -Some of the artwork...not all of it. I didn't like some of the guest artists. -Maps played such an important role in this volume and I absolutely love her a Ok so this definitely wasn't my favorite of the Gotham Academy series.

    It's almost never that I want to skim a comic, but here we are. I liked seeing the various artists' styles depicting the adorable characters... and otherwise found it a waste of time. More of the main story, please. It's almost never that I want to skim a comic, but here we are.

    I'm obviously not the target audience but switching of artists every few pages made me really dislike this. I think this series is more like Scooby doo and the gang minus the dog and mystery machine. Few brief appearances by Robin are not enough to keep me interested.

    What an amazing sequel to book two. I just love Olive and Maps. Their friends are just as good as they are and they are some of the best enablers I have ever seen. Just a great continuation of a great story. ilu eh

    **1.5 / 2 stars** WTF. what the actual heck did I just read? If I didn't know any better I would think all the writers completely forgot about how vol 2 ended and decided they just didn't care anymore for this series and put together THE MOST USELESS AND STUPID PLOT. Yearbook? REALLY?! Y'all were THAT bored? Sure, some of the stories might be a tad interesting but they do NOTHING TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS WE HAD FROM VOLUME 2!!!

Because if it's just as messed up as this waste of a volume I swear I will set it on fire. Not really though LOL

    The yearbook issues had some great things going on and some not so great things going on. It's worth reading but understand there's little plot furthering and very inconsistent. There's a lot of strength in seeing a variety of authors and artists. We get to see the GA kids through the lens of many people, which brings a lot of depth but also a lot of eh-moments. My favorite issue was #16 because Maps/Damien OTP. My favorite stories were: Scottie Dog, Hammin' Around, Maps' Day Out, and Boring Sun The yearbook issues had some great things going on and some not so great things going on.

    ORIGINALLY POSTED: https://bibliomantics.com/2016/06/30/... The latest Gotham Academy trade is less a full story arc and more a compilation of shorts set in the DC Universe. While there are some really adorable hits, the collection has way more misses, making this the most disappointing volume of the series. Hopefully the next arc will be worth the extended wait!

    More light-hearted than the previous volumes. Which is fun, but my inner 90's goth needs some darkness. More light-hearted than the previous volumes. Which is fun, but my inner 90's goth needs some darkness.

    Pretty much as soon as I opened this book, I had no idea what was going on. Couldn't remember what happened in the previous installments, and skimming though, it looked like a collection of different artists drawing short comics. I hate artwork changes. So I skipped this and went right into Second Semester. This book is definitely skippable. Pretty much as soon as I opened this book, I had no idea what was going on.

    This was just lovely. It's been cool to see these friendships grow, and I loved the inclusion of so many artists and art styles in this issue! The plots are clever and creepy, and I can't wait to see what happens in the next issue! This was just lovely.

    I love these characters and the tone of the book. This was a pretty fun mystery, but it was dragged out a bit and didn't compel me to finish it in a short period of time.

    This volume of Gotham Academy continues the fun, lighthearted adventures of the first volumes and reunites the reader with their favorite troublesome Gotham teens. This one is more episodic than the other volumes, and while I missed an overarching story, I enjoyed these vignettes and enjoyed the chance to get these peeks into the gang's lives and exploits. The framing of the "yearbook" is fun and I liked the way they led into each flashback.

    I read this in single issue format 3.5 ?? // I'm not sure how I felt about this volume? All the short stories and different art styles were interesting, but it also made everything disjointed and there wasn't a natural flow. I would have much preferred an actual storyline like we got in the first two volumes. I feel like it lost a lot of the elements that made me fall in love with the series. Like always though the main art was STUNNING and I love all these kids so much! Super interested to see I read this in single issue format 3.5 ?? // I'm not sure how I felt about this volume?

    The regular writing team takes a break and we get a humorous anthology book for this volume of the Gotham Academy. Since this book is written by various writers and it has artwork from various artist I do not want to judge it so harshly. The books main appeal is it really expands on the current status quo of the main characters of this series. I have to say Maps is probably the cutest and well written new character at DC Comics.

    This volume captures a bunch of mini stories about the Detective Club, each done in a different art style. Odds are you're going to find either the art changes or the story shortness give you whiplash - I did okay with the art, but wanted either longer stories or more connecting framework between them. We get a little more worldbuilding, but because the stories are all past we don't get much movement in character arcs. Still, these guys are cute and it's an interesting idea.

    I can't believe it but I DNFed this I am so disappointing in this book! As much as I have loved the previous two, this one was a huge let down. I wanted to continue on with the story where it left off, I wanted to know what happened next. Instead, I got this collection of stories that's all over the place and that has a gazillion different artworks, and that's basically like a child's scrapbook. I simply didn't like this one at all. *leaves in disappointed* I can't believe it but I DNFed this I am so disappointing in this book!
