It seems like forever since we've had a Gotham Academy book to curl up in bed with and read while eating fried chicken. What, you don't eat fried chicken in bed while reading comic books? Well, you are a weirdo then. As they say, different strokes. Speaking of Different Strokes, Mrs. Garrett was one of my favorite characters on both Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life and would be such a great addition to Gotham Academy. It makes so much sense that I don't know why it hasn't happened yet. I can just imagine Mrs. Garrett finding out the latest hijinx Olive and Maps have gotten into..."Girls, Girls Girls"... Check out these Fiona Staples variant covers that might not feature Mrs. Garrett, but are still very awesome!
