The Oracle Code is a graphic novel that follows Barbara Gordon after she's been shot and is paralyzed. She has to go to a center to help her recover and learn how to live with her new disability. After a few days she starts to get a weird feeling about the place and when her new friend goes missing she knows that something is amiss at the rehabilitation facility. She teams up with a couple other friends to figure out where the missing kids have gone. Along the way she realizes that it's okay to be afraid but that she still needs to trust her instincts to help those she cares about.

SUMMARY


After a gunshot leaves her paralyzed below the waist, Barbara Gordon undergoes physical and mental rehabilitation at the Arkham Center for Independence. She must adapt to a new normal, but she cannot shake the feeling that something is dangerously amiss. Strange sounds escape at night while patients start to go missing.

Is this suspicion simply a result of her trauma? Or does Barbara actually hear voices coming from the center's labyrinthine hallways? It's up to her to put the pieces together to solve the mysteries behind the walls.

In The Oracle Code, universal truths cannot be escaped, and Barbara Gordon must battle the phantoms of her past before they consume her future.
