Today see’s the release of DC Comics latest YA graphic novel, The Oracle Code! We recently reviewed the book and Neil gave it a fantastic 9/10, see what he had to say here.
The fantastic book, written by NY Times #1 Best Selling author Marieke Nijkamp and illustrated by Manuel Preitano, tells a thrilling new origin story for Barbara Gordon as she struggles to deal with the consequences of a life-altering incident.
Take a look at this trailer for the book from DC:
After a gunshot leaves her paralyzed, Barbara Gordon enters the Arkham Center for Independence, where Gotham’s teens undergo physical and mental rehabilitation. Now using a wheelchair, Barbara must adapt to a new normal, but she cannot shake the feeling that something is dangerously amiss. Within these walls, strange sounds escape at night; patients go missing; and Barbara begins to put together pieces of what she believes to be a larger puzzle.
But is this suspicion simply a result of her trauma? Fellow patients try to connect with Barbara, but she pushes them away, and she’d rather spend time with ghost stories than participate in her daily exercises. Even Barbara’s own judgment is in question.
In The Oracle Code, universal truths cannot be escaped, and Barbara Gordon must battle the phantoms of her past before they swarm her future.
