StarCraft: Ghost Academy is a graphic novel series written by Keith R. A. DeCandido[4] and David Gerrold[5] starring Nova.[4]

The artist is Fernando Heinz Furukawa.[2]

Ghost Academy: Volume 1 was previewed in StarCraft: Frontline: Volume 4.[6]

PlotEdit

Ghost Academy serves as a sequel to StarCraft: Ghost: Nova, and coincides with chapters 18 and 19,[7] just prior to Nova's first mission.[4] The graphic novel series will be followed by StarCraft: Ghost: Spectres, a print novel.[7]

It also ties-in with StarCraft: Frontline: Volume 3 and Volume 4 stories featuring Colin Phash.[8]

The storyline focuses on Ghost Academy teens, struggling with both everyday problems and the challenges of becoming a ghost.[9]

The plot of Ghost Academy was not restricted by the storyline of StarCraft: Ghost, and was instead influenced more by the storyline of StarCraft II.[10]

Canceled InstallmentsEdit

Ghost Academy was planned to have three more volumes, but Tokyopop shut down before this could happen. Nonetheless, Blizzard's creative team plotted out where the three volumes would have gone and provided them to Nate Kenyon—author of StarCraft: Ghost: Spectres, so the novel would remain consistant with the plotted canon. Micky Neilson would nonetheless like the give Ghost Academy "lost chapters" treatment.[11]

It is known that Volume 4 would have revealed that Arcturus Mengsk had sent the drop pod to Shi in an effort to eliminate the Old Family heirs.[12]
