This Just Happened: Olive Silverlock, We Know What You Did...

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read ARKHAM MANOR #2 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

If you’ve been keeping up with the brand new comic book series, GOTHAM ACADEMY, then you’re familiar with the question on everyone’s lips: What Happened to Olive Silverlock Last Summer?! 

Sorry to tease, but we actually don’t know what happened to Olive Silverlock last summer!

For those who need a quick recap - Olive Silverlock, a second year student at Gotham Academy, has returned to the new school year after experiencing a mysterious event during her summer break. While none of her schoolmates are aware of the event, they do notice a personality change in Olive from last year. Olive’s new behavior indicates that whatever happened to her was bad. REALLY, REALLY bad. Check out GOTHAM ACADEMY #1 and GOTHAM ACADEMY #2 to get caught up. 

The mystery continues in this week’s ARKAHM MANOR #2 as we get a brief but possibly important clue. Bruce Wayne, posing as a patient in Arkham Manor (aka the relocated Arkham Asylum), stumbles upon Sybil Silverlock, who’s in a coma!! Is this Olive’s mother?

And is this a clue to the ongoing mystery? What could have happened to put Sybil Silverlock in Arkham? And why is Sybil referred to as “Calamity”?

ARKHAM MANOR #2, written by Gerry Duggan and illustrated by Shawn Crystal, is available in stores now. And look for GOTHAM ACADEMY #3, on shelves next Wednesday!
