Having never read Gotham City Garage, or much of any DC books, it took some time for me to wrap my head around this new and dystopian future.

The artwork, by Brian Ching and colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick, is gritty and raw, with hints of comics from the golden era. The characters seem to jump right off the page, almost as if you could hear Harley whisper sweet nothings into your ear, then walk away as she calls you "Sugar."

Friends of the Court Colin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing found a great way to write with characters we know while bending the DC Universe seemingly to their own will.

Book number 1 follows our protagonist Kara as she learns some (possibly) disturbing things about not just herself, but also her father...Jim Gordon. Being faced with new threats that she has never faced, she seems to almost question her own existence in this world. New allies have potentially emerged for her though, as she moves forward into this new era.

 

8 out of 10 for originality and for pulling in a non-DC reader
