Things are heating up at Gotham Academy this week—quite literally. Olive Silverlock has become possessed by the fiery spirit of her ancestor, Amity Arkham, and she wants nothing less than to turn all of Gotham to ash and dust. You can find out why in the just released GOTHAM ACADEMY: SECOND SEMESTER #8, but be prepared.
One Perfect Panel is a recurring feature that identifies and examines noteworthy comic book panels, presenting them for your appreciation and discussion. Some of these panels will be epic in scale, while others will be quiet character beats, but all will be masterful in composition and impact.

Have you been reading GOTHAM ACADEMY? If you have, you know that some of Olive's troubles are simply teen angst.
Add in a recently deceased mother that everyone thinks is a villain (her ghost may or may not be haunting the school!), and suddenly Olive Silverlock isn't just a normal teen torn between potential romance with Tristan or Kyle. Or torn between developing friendships with Pomeline and Maps.
Olive can't be everything to everyone, can she?
So DC All Access may have gone on a little summer break but that hasn't stopped all the comics from hitting store shelves all season!

With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.
Today, America votes, but tomorrow, the entire world reads. That’s because Wednesday brings us the super-sized, action-packed, jaw-dropping spectacle that is the final issue of Scott Snyder and Jim Lee’s Superman Unchained. Launched last year in celebration of Superman’s 75th Anniversary, Unchained has been nothing short of epic, with imagery on a massive scale and a storyline that saw Superman’s ideals and beliefs being tested to the very core. Now, he’ll have to make an impossible choice.
