It’s September, which means we are getting closer to the best month of the year: October! While we do have some spooky plans brewing for October’s trade of the month, I’m here to announce our trade for September. And that trade is…

Gotham Academy Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy



Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very strange place. It’s got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by…like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange as the students! Like, what’s up with Olive Silverlock? Is she crazy or what? Where did she go last summer? And what’s the deal with her creepy mom? And how come that freshman Maps is always following her around? And is she still going out with Kyle? P.S. Did you hear the rumor about the ghost in the North Hall?! It’s all here in these tales from issues #1-6 of the new series! 

It’s true! This month we’ll be reading Gotham Academy, Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy. I started picking up this comic the week it was released, but never got around to reading it, but the art and story looks like a load of fun, and I thought it’d be a fun read for us all. We also started a poll over on the Goodreads page and a few of you have been suggesting it for quite a while. I’m so excited to grab my copy and discuss it with you all!

(Pro tip: You can grab it on Amazon for around $10!)

As usual, you can discuss the trade as you read along with us on Goodreads, the forums, Twitter, or the comments below! To keep the conversation going on all social media, feel free to use the hashtag #IgglesComicBookAlliance. I can’t wait to discuss this with you all!

See you all at the end of the month with our September wrap up of Gotham Academy Vol. 1! Till then…
