Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—This slick volume collects the first six issues of the DC comics set in a prestigious school in Gotham City. After a traumatic summer, Olive Silverlock struggles to get back into her school routine while showing around new student Maps Mizoguchi and trying to avoid her ex, Kyle, Maps's older brother. But with a possible ghost knocking on the walls and secret societies roaming the halls, Olive isn't coping well with the knowledge of her mother's precarious health condition, her studies, and her classmates' bullying. When the teen begins to recover strange memories about a fire and keeps running into a mysterious stranger with glowing eyes who seems to know her more than she knows him, she bands with other school misfits to uncover some of Gotham Academy's dark secrets. Filled with spunky and quirky characters and unexpected plot turns, this work adds an intriguing and fresh layer to the Batman mythos. In this tale, Bruce Wayne, the school's benefactor, is treated with disdain by Olive and the Batman signal is a daily occurence. Kerschl's campy art is by turns luminous and gloomy, enhancing Cloonan and Fletcher's energetic and sometimes contemplative text. The size and shape of the panels are used to great effect, adeptly building momentum with panache and verve. VERDICT The emphasis on friendships and high school drama mixed with action-packed sequences and an otherworldly tone makes this graphic novel perfect for not only fans of the franchise but those who enjoy boarding school fiction.—Shelley Diaz, School Library Journal

Review

“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
