For the last several years, it’s been a unique pleasure to experience a side of Gotham we’ve never seen before. Instead of a violent and gothic exploration of the things we fear, Gotham Academy has shown us that even in dark places, love and friendship can thrive. However, all good stories eventually come to an end. […]
