Gotham Academy #12 by Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan

First note, good job layout person who put too many ads in so there’s zero credits anywhere to the creative team. I’m sure they enjoy that.
This was a nice wrap-up to the main mystery. It wasn’t groundbreaking, but it served as a end-cap. I liked that it was Professor Strange trying to bring out Calamity that caused all the problems. Though what a creepy stalker!
It’ll be interesting to see the fallout between Olive and Pomeline since she revealed in a blunt manner that Olive’s father was killed by Calamity, not in an accident.
I do like the twist that Calamity is a spirit power passed between the Silverlocks. I hope that Olive learns how to harness it. And that she talks to Professor MacPherson about the entire thing. Clearly, Ham growling at Olive signaled a change in her, and likely that change is Calamity.
I decided that I’m going to stop reading the book here since Cloonan has left the title and the direction has been changed. I’m also in a period of cutting books that I’m not enjoying as much (or reading for other reasons), and unfortunately, this book is included in the cut. Especially after I read issue #13 and it wasn’t my cuppa.
