Read for Goodreads Read Harder 2023 - disability representation is wonderful, smart, compassionate (and not sappy), instructive, and I imagine empowering. This is actually a nice piece of advocacy promotion for middle grade readers, which I was not expecting. I am not a comics reader so I am not sure I am the best judge, but I did actually really like the art here.

Marieke Nijkamp’s The Oracle Code: A Graphic Novel features illustrations by Manuel Preitano, colors by Jordie Bellaire and Preitano, and letters by Clayton Cowles. Like the other YA original graphic novels DC has published, Nijkamp takes a familiar character – in this case Barbara Gordon – and reimagines her origins and adventures in a new setting with new takes on familiar characters and locations. Barbara and her friend Ben regularly engage in computer hacking contests. After a successful night, she stumbles upon a mugging and intervenes. The mugger shoots Babs, paralyzing her. Her father, Commissioner Gordon, sends her to the Arkham Center for Independence, a rehabilitation facility that combines physical exercise and therapy with lessons in navigating the world with one’s disability. It specializes in physical disabilities, with most resident patients being wheelchair users or using other mobility assistance devices. Barbara struggles to adapt to her new life, in particular as she feels the need to find a new puzzle to solve but worries that it will cause further turmoil as she associates her last hacking contest with the circumstances surrounding her paralysis. Despite her resistance to her surroundings, she slowly makes friends and discovers that there’s more going on at Arkham than she suspected. She must use what she’s learned and rely on her new support system to discover the secret of Arkham.

Nijkamp’s story honors the Oracle stories that preceded it while showing the possibility for reinvention in Barbara Gordon’s backstory. The new characters and focus on perceptions of disability add nuance to this adventure. Preitano’s art adds a touch of the gothic to Arkham that compliments or contrasts with the high-tech world of Oracle’s computers as the story demands. Further, the recurring puzzle piece motif visualizes Barbara’s love for mysteries. Preitano and Bellaire’s colors pop when needed, but add to the somber, subdued setting of a gothic facility. This story will appeal to all fans of Barbara Gordon’s identity as Oracle while also serving as a nice introduction to the character for newcomers wary of decades of comics continuity.

Mi primer audiolibro y no podia haber escogido nada mejor. Muy fácil de seguir y con las voces “originales” de los personajes.

Estamos ante una historia de hermanos y relaciones filiales, de como el apoyo en el otro es importante. La confianza y la cercania de unos contra las luchas de poder y riqueza de otros. Creo que como novela de fantasia estándar es algo floja, con una trama sencilla y unos personajes carismáticos pero sin mucho mas allá.

Los secundarios están bien construidos pero no me acabo de sacar la sensación de que no eran interesantes. Aún así, como fan de Critical Role, esta novela me ha dado disfrute a raudales, y poder escuchar/leer en una narración tan larga a Vex y Vax interactuar así, ha sido una delicia.… (mais)

Such a strange book...I really love how this author writes, but the story in this book just felt so, hmmm, incomplete? I’m not quite sure how to explain my feelings about this book. It’s a quick enough read that I wasn’t mad or irritated that I wasted my time but I did feel let down and slightly confused in the end. I would still read more from this author if she wrote more in the future tho because her writing is beautiful.
