A new series inspired by the DC Collectibles statue line! It’s been decades since Governor Lex Luthor turned Gotham City into a modern utopia, saving his people from the devastation that made the rest of the continent a wasteland. But his city isn’t paradise for everyone. If the Lexes network misfires, and a citizen wakes up and steps out of line, the Bat and his minions are brutal in restoring the status quo. So when young Kara Gordon, whose ridealong tech has never functioned optimally, rushes headlong into the Freescape, she’s shocked to find Gotham City Garage-where new friends might become family, if she lives long enough.

Review: Gotham City Garage #1

It’s been decades since Governor Lex Luthor turned Gotham City into a modern utopia, saving his people from the devastation that made the rest of the continent a wasteland. But his city isn’t paradise for everyone. If the Lexes network misfires, and a citizen wakes up and steps out of line, the Bat and his minions are brutal in restoring the status quo. So when young Kara Gordon, whose ridealong tech has never functioned optimally, rushes headlong into the Freescape, she’s shocked to find Gotham City Garage-where new friends might become family, if she lives long enough.

The digital series comes to print as we get a look at a dystopian future that’s pretty relevant for today. Writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly give us a little antifa with Gotham City Garage #1 an issue that doesn’t completely focus on Harley Quinn unlike what the cover shows.

Instead, the comic is about Kara Gordon who knows something’s not right with the fascist world she lives in and eventually escapes the madness coming across Quinn and her biker gang who are here to kick ass, chew bubble gum and they’re all out of bubble gum. The comic feels like a dystopian version of the popular DC Comics Bombshells where the setting switch is key and the bad guys won.

The comic is an interesting one delivering lots of action and twists and turns that up the ominous feel of it all, especially the ending which hints that some of our assumptions might not be correct. That’s all intriguing and to see these kick-ass women kicking ass is an entertaining escape of the real world. It’s entertainment with an underlying message.

The art by Brian Ching is top notch and the two main settings are a sharp contrast which tell you almost everything you need to know about the world. The designs of every character are great and detail is solid. I’m loving the look of it and it reminds me a lot of cover artist Rafael Albuquerque or Sean Gordon Murphy.

Mixing entertainment and politics, Gotham City Garage is a fun escape where you get to see fascists get their ass kicked as they should. The politics aren’t in your face and the comic can be read as shallow or as deep as you’d like. No matter your choice, the comic is entertaining fun, which is the most important thing about it.
