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. In Gotham Academy: Second Semester #9, Olive Silverlock begins her story’s final chapter.

“The Ballad of Olive Silverlock” part one! With alliances irrevocably shifted, the loyalty of the Detective Club undergoes its most crucial test. The time has come to leave school behind and fight for each other and the city they love.
