Gotham City Garage takes place in a post-apocalyptic dystopian future where the last city on earth is governed and maintained by a person named, Governor Luthor. The city, also known as The Garden, is enclosed by a red dome and is protected Batman-like robots.

In The Garden, every one is happy. Any feeling opposite of happiness is a sign of malfunction, hence, requires immediate termination. One day, Kara Gordon, the daughter (or is she) of Jim Gordon questions the concept of a paradise on Earth and the state of being happy. She sees the reality and finds the society she lives in as undesirable. Because of these, she would find herself in deep trouble. However, through exile, she would discover what she truly is and her purpose in this world.

Gotham City Garage #1 is an elseworld story that focuses on women empowerment as it emphasizes the role of women in spreading hope. In on of those rare occasions, Batman in this series is perceived to be a villain which I think fits his personality. While Gotham City Garage #1 is a digital-first release, it did not leave the me unsatisfied. Rather, the story can stand by itself and subsequently, sets a stage for a bigger world for the following issues. I am definitely hooked by this series!
