Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at GOTHAM ACADEMY #1 and HINTERKIND #12.

WELCOME TO GOTHAM ACADEMY! Gather your supplies, pack your backpacks, and make sure to double-check your class schedule, because fall semester at Gotham Academy begins October 1st, and trust us when we say this is one time where you definitely don’t want to cut class.

Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird 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 Olive still going out with MAPS’ older brother Kyle? P.S. Did you hear the rumor about the ghost in the North Hall?!

GOTHAM ACADEMY #1, written by Eisner-Award-nominated artist Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher and illustrated by Karl Kerschl, is on sale this Wednesday.

Then, HINTERKIND #12 is a Vertigo “Defy Covers” issue! An extra page of action starts on the cover!

The second story arc comes to an end with big changes for The Hinterkind: After plotting to murder her mother, Tersia is queen – for a day! Malachi, the Red Knight, gets a bodyguard of his own! Prosper meets her Prince! Jon Hobb finds his humanity – and the Vampire Nation gets a kick in the teeth!

Look for HINTERKIND #12, written by Ian Edginton and illustrated by Francesco Trifogli, this Wednesday.
