"Teens who love gritty Batman Stories will find plenty to like in this latest Gotham City Vigilante...Violet's bitterness, long-buried secrets, and tightrope walk between bravery and recklessness make this a nice fit for fans of Greg Rucka's Batwoman: Elegy." --BOOKLIST "Houser's dialogue and characters are superb. Edwards is in top form; his pacing is wonderful and the action is fantastic."--NERDIST "While there is no shortage of women heroes, there is a major shortage of woman antiheroes and MOTHER PANIC looks to fill that gap." --NEWSARAMA "Mother Panic is a somewhat more traditional superhero story, but the psychedelic visual style and and surreal, fractured narrative give the book a flavor all its own." --IGN
