"A few people have said some of the stuff we are planning is reminiscent of Punisher MAX, which is nothing but the highest of compliments!"

"It’s one of the most challenging things about this book and one of the most satisfying things. The tone is a very specific tone and it requires a balancing act. We want it to be dark and spooky, but we don’t want it to be terrifyingly dark and too spooky. My eight year old niece needs to be able to read this book, but it also has to feel like it has some gravitas to it. The dark and spooky stuff still needs to be effective. That stuff’s tough to achieve, I don’t think we could do it without Karl’s deft hand pulling it all together in the artwork stage. He really knows how to strike that balance perfectly." - Brenden Fletcher

"Gotham Academy was at [the American Library Association midsummer meeting], where we learned there was no such thing as “all ages.” Honestly, I am writing my part of Gotham Academy for myself. This is the kind of book I want to enjoy, but at the same time I’m very conscious that my eight-year-old niece needs a book like this. If I have to drill down and say it has to be shelved in a certain place or recommended to a specific demographic, I would say young people eight to 14. My niece is eight and she loves Gotham Academy. I feel very proud when I give her a book and she devours it and wants more. I had her in mind when I put it together. I need to know this is something she is really going to enjoy. It feels really validating. I know that it’s not inappropriate for that age range, we are not putting anything in there that would be inappropriate at all, but also I know this story plays for somebody at that age. It’s really been stirring a chord with her." - Brenden Fletcher

When last we left our cartographic heroine, she was forming a club to protect the school from the various evils that seem to pop up all the time in Gotham. Also, Damian Wayne enrolled in the school.

When last we left our probably-pyrokinetic heroine, she and her friends were supping with Killer Croc when suddenly: Batman!

Hooray, they're saved! )

When last we left our investigative heroine, she went into some hidden tunnels and found herself facing Killer Croc.

Hopefully he's not in one of his cannibal phases )

When last we left our ghost-hunting heroine, she and her crack commando squad classmates broke into the haunted North Hall, where a hand grabbed Olive's arm.

To whom--or what--could the hand belong?? )

When last we left our somewhat amnesiac heroine, she snuck out of the dorms in the middle of the night, damaged a rare, antique library book, and set fire to a shrine in the cemetery.

And in this issue: Arkham Asylum! Kinda! )

When last we left our silver-locked heroine, she was trying to grapple with some mysterious life-altering event that happened over the summer, while working on maintaining her relationship with her (ex-?) boyfriend's little sister.

But there are also other people to relate to (or not)! They shall be found below. )

Anybody who is anybody will be following the announcements for new books coming out at Image soon. Books like Top Cow's Think Tank, a four issue miniseries about a scientific researcher, a third Phonogram series, Tony Harris drawing a 1930's Noir, Gangster, horror story!!, 2 books from Jonathan Hickman, another Jonathan Ross pwoject (this time with Bryan Hitch), the bizarrely controversial BKV return to comics, Saga, and Mara by Brian Wood and Ming Doyle.

The concept of Mara is as follows
The world of MARA is a war-and-fitness obsessed future, where the angst and insecurity of average citizens is compensated with an extreme focus on sports and battle. Mara Prince is a superbly gifted athlete, playing in a women's volleyball league, and is as famous as you can imagine, with endless endorsements, comped everything, and millions of screaming teenage fans. Until one day, during a highly visible match, she starts to manifest superpowers. For a culture that prizes physical achievement, conformity, and fair-minded sportsmanship, this puts Mara's entire world at risk.


On Saturday night, I tweeted Mara by Brian Wood is really interesting until it gets to the word "superhero" I'll still take a look at it when it comes out
Then I got a response from Brian Wood
have you read Demo?
I read the first one, I think, where the girl is having a panic attack in the car. I really enjoyed NY4-5 and Local
Mara is about superpowers like Demo is about superpowers.

So, off I went to get a look at Demo, which seems to be a series of one-shot stories. Comixology only has v.2 on it, and I picked up v2#3, which goes like this )
