DC’s new YA graphic novel The Oracle Code by Marieke Nijkamp with art by Manuel Preitano updates the Batman legend of Barbara Gordon, daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon, who is paralyzed after a gunshot wound. Reimagined by Nijkamp, an autistic YA author and advocate for the disabled, Babs Gordon is now a wheelchair-bound teenager struggling emotionally with her disability, newly and reluctantly enrolled in Gotham City's Arkham Center for Independence to learn to adapt to her condition. But she’s also a world class hacker who turns sleuth after she realizes something’s not quite right at the facility when patients start disappearing. In this 13-page excerpt Babs slowly comes out of her shell, trains using her wheelchair, and teams with a patient whose brother is missing in an effort figure out what’s going on. The Oracle Code was published this month by DC Graphic Novels for Young Readers.
