Before they became Batman, Catwoman, and The Joker, high schoolers Bruce, Selina, and Jack did whatever it took to satisfy their own self-interested motives — even if it destroyed the ones they loved in the process.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Alex and Eliza and The Witches of East End comes a reimagining of Gotham for a new generation of readers. Melissa de la Cruz makes her graphic novel debut with Gotham High, a thrilling, original tale that introduces teen readers (ages 13-17) to an entirely new Bruce Wayne.
With enchanting art by Thomas Pitilli, Gotham High is just as intoxicating as it is chilling and follows Bruce as he navigates the highs and lows of high school, making friends and enemies at every turn.
After being kicked out of boarding school,
16-year-old Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City to find that nothing is as he
left it. What once was his family home is now an empty husk, lonely but haunted
by the memory of his parents’ murder. Selina Kyle, once the innocent girl next
door, now rules over Gotham High School with a flair for the dramatic and a
thirst for danger, aided by class clown, Jack Napier.
When a kidnapping rattles everyone at the school, Bruce seeks answers as he takes on the role of the dark and troubled knight…but is he actually the pawn? Nothing is as it seems at Gotham High, where the parties and romances are of the highest stakes…and where everyone is a suspect.
