Gotham High by Melissa de la Cruz + Thomas Pitilli

First and foremost, thank you to DC for providing me with a free copy of this book! Now on with the review!

I don’t read graphic novels, usually, but for the first one I’ve read in who knows how many years, I think it was a really quick and enjoyable read. The colours were vibrant and I loved the art style that was used to illustrate the book! It fit right in and made it attractive to the eye. For graphic novels, I think thats an important factor to consider and Thomas Pitilli NAILED it!

I personally wasn’t a huge fan of the characters, although I do think they were well suited to the story. I just didn’t find them relatable, which is something I like to have in my books. However, their personalities were perfectly suited to cause a lot of drama in the book and that kept my interest up. The character dynamics were something else entirely (not in a bad way! 😂) and definitely added to the plot line, which is what’s important here!

There were a couple times while reading when I was confused about what order to read the boxes in, and I had to stop and try to puzzle through it. Most of the time, though, it was clear and easy to follow along with!

The plot line was also pretty predictable for me, which took away from a lot of the mystery factor, but it was still more or less enjoyable! It found it quite fun to see how what I thought was going to happen would unravel and the level of drama in the book kept me entertained throughout that. Sometimes it’s fun to be surprised, but for this book, I think it was just fun to see how the story would play out.

By the way the book ended, I’m going to guess there’s going to be a sequel and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at a least a little bit interested in seeing where this story goes next! There’s a lot of potential and a good set-up for another book and I’m intrigued to see where they’ll from here.
