Meet The Class Of DC Comics' 'Gotham Academy' [Exclusive]

It's time to go bat to school.

What's it like to go to school in Batman's Gotham City? Is it a dangerous, deadly affair - or just a bunch of classes, books, and same old, same old? As it turns out, it's spooky, weird and like nothing DC Comics has ever released before.

At least, that's what readers will find out when the publisher releases "Gotham Academy" by writers Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan, with art by Karl Kerschl, a look inside the elite prep school just across town from Arkham Asylum.

But what about the students that go there? Sure, you'll get visits from "that weirdo" Bruce Wayne, but there's a whole new cast of kids who need to learn why we fall - and MTV News is pleased to exclusively reveal your first look at the character one-sheets that will introduce us to the class of GA.

The first issue is on sale everywhere on October 1, and you can scroll down for a full description of the series.

GOTHAM ACADEMY

Writers: Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan

Artist: Karl Kerschl

WELCOME TO GOTHAM ACADEMY! 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 is 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?!

GOTHAM ACADEMY is a new, monthly teen drama set in the shadow of Batman and the craziness of Gotham City, with new characters and old plus a secret tie to Gotham’s past…
