The acclaimed creative team of Brenden Fletcher (BATGIRL), Becky Cloonan (Southern Cross) and Karl Kerschl (WEDNESDAY COMICS) are joined by artist Adam Archer (AME-COMI GIRLS) as classes begin and new mysteries unfold for the kids of Gotham Academy in GOTHAM ACADEMY: SECOND SEMESTER VOL. 1-WELCOME BACK! It's the second semester at Gotham Academy, and everything is back to normal. Of course, "normal" for Gotham's top prep school would be considered uncontrollable weirdness anywhere else! First, a bunch of students start walking out of their extracurricular activities with no explanation and signing up for a strange new society-Witch Club! Then, a stolen map of the Academy puts the students on the trail of ancient symbols and hidden chambers. There's plenty for the Detective Club to investigate-but Olive Silverlock is distracted by her new rebel roommate, Amy. Is Maps Mizoguchi right to be suspicious of a bad influence, or just jealous that she's losing her best friend? Plus, Detective Club is joined by the World's Greatest Detective-Batman!
