While reading Gotham Academy, it's easy to forget that you're in the DC universe until Bruce Wayne shows up to give a speech to the students. This is because he is a major financial contributor to the institution. After he's gone, you tend to forget he was even there and follow the kids on their first adventure which is finding friendships in unlikely places. It all gets tied up in the end when the Bat signal is seen within the clouds. While some still think Batman is a myth, the children come to their own conclusions and Olive becomes a hero in a place where superpowers appear to be absent.
This is a pretty different kind of experience for DC. I'm curious to see where it goes. So far I'd say this is suitable for children. Let's see where it goes.
