Hello, Gothamites! Welcome to another week of the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
So, Labor Day has come and gone, and in the past, that usually meant the Fall school season was back in full swing. Of course, it being 2020, it’s…a little more complicated, but let’s go back to school and talk about the first six issues of Gotham Academy, co-written by Becky Cloonan and Branden Fletcher, and drawn by Karl Kerschl!
WELCOME TO GOTHAM ACADEMY! Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It’s got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by…like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange is the students! Like, what’s up with Olive Silverlock? Is she crazy or what? Where did she go last summer? And what’s the deal with her creepy mom? And how come that Freshman MAPS is always following her around? And is she still going out with Kyle? P.S. Did you hear the rumor about the ghost in the North Hall?! GOTHAM ACADEMY is a new, monthly teen drama set in the shadow of Batman and the craziness of Gotham City, with new characters and old plus a secret tie to Gotham’s past…
Here are the links for the issues:
Welcome To Gotham Academy
So let us know down below what you think! Have you read this book before? What do you think of these books that focus more on the world of the Dark Knight and isn’t immediately following behind his cape?
Since we’re a little late this week (sorry about that guys!), we’re going to be a little more loosey-goosey with the end of this one, we’ll probably have until the end of the weekend until the next one starts, but remember you can always come back and share your thoughts on any previous WOB entries.
