I'm so thrilled that Gotham Academy is back! Though we've had other comics to enjoy with these beloved characters such as Gotham Academy / Lumberjanes and Gotham Academy Annual, it was about time we get back to normal. From DC Comics, written by the original Gotham Academy trio, Brenden Fletcher, Becky Cloonan, and Karl Kershl, with art by Adam Archer and Sandra Hope, Gotham Academy: Second Semester #1 has finally arrived. It's winter break at the school and Olive finds herself mostly alone, but when a new student shows up, things get a little tricky.
[WARNING: SPOILERS FOR GOTHAM ACADEMY SECOND SEMESTER BELOW!!]
After being hooked in as usual by Olive's powerful inner dialogue, I found myself immersed in the world of Gotham Academy again. Walking the halls with her, feeling troubled, feeling lonely, her character gripped me just like she always had. Gotham Academy has been a wonderful comic to experience thus far, one that has had a lot of drama, action, and themes of friendship consistent throughout. It was about time a wrench was thrown into the works, one that would mess with the team work that Olive has always experienced with her fellow students. Enter Amy…
From the moment she showed up, I loved her. I didn't trust her, but I knew I wanted to know more. Lucky for me, Olive did too. At first reluctant to spend time with her new roommate, soon interested in poking around campus. The issue takes the duo on a bit of a rollercoaster, one that is very much left open ended. The reason I'm so excited about the addition of her character is because of how much nonsense she is bound to stir up. I sense danger on campus because of this new character and I like it. It will surely make things interesting. Have you read the new issue of Gotham Academy yet? What do you think of Amy?
By the end of the issue I could tell that there would be a lot to look forward to this semester. Be sure to pick up your copy of Gotham Academy: Second Semester #1 today!
