DC Comics Secret Hero Society Study Hall of Justice

There's a new kid in school at Ducard Academy this year. His name is Bruce Wayne, and he's a little too curious for his own good. But he can't stop himself from getting involved from investigating the strange happenings: the bullies led by Bane, the gang of clowns who roam the halls, the always-angry Coach Zod, and the ever-present shadowy ninjas who stick to the shadows of the school.

Fortunately, there are a couple of other kids that might be able to help Bruce figure things out: Clark, the shy kid from Kansas who's very secretive about the things that happen around him, and Diana, the feisty girl with a good heart who doesn't take any guff from the bullies. Together, they'll find out what's really going on at Ducard Academy, and discover why bad behavior is rewarded by the school's guidance counselor, Hugo Strange. That is, if Bruce can actually convince Clark and Diana that there really is something odd happening, and keep them as his friends despite his aloofness and arrogance.

Written from Bruce's perspective, and illustrated with memos, diary entries, and comic panels. Derek Fridolfs and Dustin Nguyen combine their LIL GOTHAM talents to bear on this chapter book for young readers that will put these familiar characters in a fresh setting that is both relateable and enjoyable. Fans will get a kick out of seeing their heroes and villains moving around in a world more like the one they live in.
