Watch The Gotham High Trailer

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Alex and Eliza and The Witches of East End comes a reimagining of Gotham for a new generation of readers. Before they became Batman, Catwoman, and The Joker, Bruce, Selina, and Jack were high schoolers who would do whatever it took–even destroy the ones they love–to satisfy their own motives.

After being kicked out of his boarding school, 16-year-old Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City to find that nothing is as he left it. What once was his family home is now an empty husk, lonely but haunted by the memory of his parents’ murder. Selina Kyle, once the innocent girl next door, now rules over Gotham High School with a dangerous flair, aided by the class clown, Jack Napier.

When a kidnapping rattles the school, Bruce seeks answers as the dark and troubled knight–but is he actually the pawn? Nothing is ever as it seems, especially at Gotham High, where the parties and romances are of the highest stakes … and where everyone is a suspect.

With enchanting art by Thomas Pitilli, this new YA graphic novel is just as intoxicating as it is chilling, in which dearest friends turn into greatest enemies–all within the hallways of Gotham High!

Pre-order Gotham High HERE. It will be released on April 7, 2020.

Scribner is pleased to announce the publication, on September 15, 2015 of its first graphic novel, Intro To Alien Invasion, born out of a fantastic collaboration between two exceptional literary novelists and an imaginative illustrator. The gifted Owen King makes up one half of the storytelling team; The New York Times Book Review called his debut novel Double Feature “epic, ambitious…[King] has a captivating energy, a precision, and a fondness for people that are rare.” Writing with King is New York Times Notable novelist and screenwriter Mark Jude Poirier, whose work includes the films Smart People and Hateship Loveship, adapted from an Alice Munro story. Young, extremely talented illustrator Nancy Ahn brings a unique and knowing aesthetic to this ambitious work.

Intro To Alien Invasion stars Stacey, a brilliant, but socially marginalized student at Fenton College, a liberal arts school nestled in the hills of Vermont. Even her few friends find her relationship with Professor Evans, the highly eccentric astrobiology instructor, strange, and they’re skeptical of his theories about alien species. But, when an enormous hurricane strands the students on campus, Professor Evans’s theories prove to be correct: an alien invasion suddenly hits the college, leaving Stacey as the student most capable of taking down the infestation that threatens to wipe out the entire Fenton College population.

Intro To Alien Invasion humorously captures the contradictions of the typical liberal arts college, and its sharp depictions of various college cliques, from the “Trustafarians” to “the Young Republicans,” will leave readers in stitches. Intro To Alien Invasion also manages to reveal the dark side of college life—from mean students ignorant of their deep privilege to egotistical frat boys to uppity professors and uncaring administrators. Through inventive, witty illustrations and dynamic storytelling techniques, King, Poirier, and Ahn create an ingenious graphic novel bursting with wit, heart and pop culture references, and filtered through the point-of-view of a contemporary, compelling heroine.
