Description

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 as 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?!
Collects Gotham Academy #1-6.

Review quote

"A little bit CW television series and a little bit Harry Potter, with a wee touch of manga-inspired storytelling. While that might all sound like an awful mix to some, Gotham Academy actually turns out to be a really fun and charming book."-Nerdist.com

"As it turns out, it's spooky, weird and like nothing DC Comics has ever released before."-- MTV News

"Slick, charming, and, dare we say it, fun. Each turn of the page pulling you further into the book's beautifully imaginative world."-IGN

"The book is quirky and cute, a Scooby Doo mystery wrapped in an anime shell and served with teenage angst on the side."-Newsarama

"This series is so fun and inventive that it's hard to not love it. Cloonan, Fletcher and Kerschl understand how to make good -- no, great comics."-Comic Book Resources

About Becky Cloonan

Becky Cloonan is an American comic book writer and artist known for her manga-influenced artwork. Her first major comics work came when she teamed with writer Brian Wood to create Channel Zero: Jennie One. However, she is best-known for her second collaboration with Wood, DEMO, a 12-issue limited series that was named "Indie of the Year" by Wizard Magazine in 2004 and nominated for two Eisner Awards including Best Limited Series. In 2009 Cloonan and Wood expanded DEMO and re-published it through DC Comics' Vertigo imprint. Cloonan's first solo graphic novel, East Coast Rising Volume 1, earned her a third Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series. Her other work for DC Comics includes AMERICAN VIRGIN, co-created with writer Steven T. Seagle, and NORTHLANDERS for Vertigo as well co-writing GOTHAM ACADEMY with Brenden Fletcher.
