More FUN books?
Should this thread just be renamed "Gotham Academy" discussion?
The last time I read a DC title was back in the 90s with Young Justice. I have never been a big DC fan but I recently discovered Becky Cloonan's independent work and fell in love, so when I saw her name attached to this and read the premise it seemed like something I should give a chance. Seeing the art work really has me sold and the more I read about it the more excited I am for it. I am also glad that it is not going to be closely tied to the other Bat-books, as I would be so lost, as again I haven't read anything DC in over a decade.

This is my first time hearing about this, but the art is stunning!
This is gonna be so excellent.
The October-November Gotham books are gonna obliterate my wallet.
For some reason that first panel(of the hallway) makes me immediately think of Curse of Monkey Island... It may just be the palette/coloring style. I love the art, and I love the whole concept for the comic.
I love pink stuff and when girls are involved like it more...........
Really, throw Gotham into the title and Bat-Fans think they have to check it out. If this were called Super City Sleuths we would not be discussing it
Did I mention that Damn!!! That are is awesome!
Whoa the art posted in this thread is amazing. Very much digging the Harry Potter vibe. I was already mildly interested because of Becky Cloonan's involvement, but I'm pretty sure this just became a must! Although I agree with @Billy Batson, those plaids are coloured kinda lazily lol -- nice catch btw, I didn't even notice at first!
It's kinda weird really, I've never had much interest in DC beyond the current Wonder Woman, but now with Gotham Academy and Batgirl they've suddenly got 2 series that I'm interested in -- and I've never even read any Batman-related titles! Think I'll just try them out, they're $2.99 too right? Some Marvel series are ending anyway (Superior Foes, Hawkeye), might as well try to replace them with something new (to me).

May 2015 favourite: ODY-C. This gorgeous sci-fi retelling of the odyssey does inventive stuff with the medium, gets better with every issue, and features colours that can only be called lush. While the unconventional writing is divisive, I'd highly recommend at least trying it - there's nothing like it out right now. (By Matt Fraction & Christian Ward, through Image).
