An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

Gotham Academy, Vol 2.

Gotham Academy Vol. 2: Calamity - Brenden Fletcher, Karl Kerschl, Becky Cloonan

I want to like Gotham Academy, I really do. But I just don't. I really like the characters. I just wish they were in a different book.

 

The comic itself is difficult to read (I had this same complaint about Vol 1). The frames are not well-defined and text box placement doesn't make sense a lot of the time (two boxes in the top right corner, one on the bottom left... which one am I supposed to read first!?).

 

I'm also not familiar with the DC universe at all, and I think that lack of knowledge is hurting my reading, too.

 

I'm excited to read the Lumberjanes crossover. Both comics have that same Scooby-Doo feel, and I think they'll go well together. But after I finish this first arc, I think I'm done with the series (although, maybe the series is over? I don't understand DC...)
