'Gotham Academy: Second Semester #1' by Becky Cloonan with art by Adam Archer feels more like a winter break filler, but has potential to bring new storylines.
Olive Silverlock is left alone at school during the winter holidays. A teacher befriends her, but then stands her up. She also gets a new roommate named Amy who seems like she's going to be trouble. Add in a trip to creepy Wedgwood Museum and a couple interesting secrets and you have the start of a sort of gothic mystery.
I've read a few issues here and there and I really want to like this concept, but it just hasn't done it for me so far. This issue feels like a prelude, and there is nothing wrong with that, but for a school that seems to be so empty, there sure seem to be a few people around. I don't know Olive or Eric's backstories, but they seem interesting enough. I don't know what I want in this title, but it just hasn't happened for me yet.
I received a review copy of this issue from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this comic book.
