DC is ending Gotham Academy: Second Semester with August's planned #12. The news comes today just as Gotham Academy: Second Semester #8 is released Wednesday, the finale of the current arc.

"Our next issue starts the final arc, 'The Ballad of Olive' that’ll run four issues and wrap this series at issue twelve," said co-writer Brenden Fletcher in an interview with The Beat.

Fletcher goes on to say "there's going to be more" Gotham Academy "at some point" referring to an idea of a "Third Semester" book.

"There’s definitely a need for YA books, YA stories, YA graphic novels and I think we’d all love to see the further adventures of the pizza club."

This is the second DCU title cancelled following "Rebirth" after Vigilante: Southland, although DC has specifically not associated either book with "Rebirth."
