    This title is really finding its way. The continued emphasis on character combined with the mysteries and twists in this issue put this on par with the best DC Comics has to offer. Read Full Review

    There's a playfulness to this series that's been on display from the get-go, and while things can still get heavy, panels that read "Gotham Cemetery: The only place to R.I.P. in Gotham" help maintain a well-balanced tone. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Liu Nov 10, 2016

    In my opinion, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #4 isn’t the most compelling comic in DC’s current lineup. Ultimately, it comes down to having a shaky, convoluted plot plus what might be the least interesting group of villains in all of Rebirth (although the other Batgirl series might take the cake for that one). We do get some stellar background art, but Antonio’s character art ranges from decent to distracting, which is kind of a shame considering the legacy of these characters. If you’re a fan of Batgirl, Huntress, or Black Canary, then I’d say go and pick this one up, since the team dynamic and character writing is really quite good, but otherwise there are definitely better choices out there.

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Nov 22, 2016

    Whatever the reason, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #4 is a decent " if uninspiring " way to pass a few minutes of reading time. It isn't a classic in any way, nor is it worth adding to your collection. However, in terms of complete average-ness, it crushes it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 9, 2016

    Batgirl and The Birds of Prey still doesn't feel like that strong of a comic and even though I enjoyed getting some backstory in this issue concerning Huntress' motivations, the rest of the issue just wasn't that interesting. Luckily, this issue looked great though and was probably some of the strongest art that we've seen in this series. Read Full Review

    I've been really enjoying this series, and this issue has been one of the best so far. Just like the Dinah Lance backstory issue, this one was a short history of Helena Bertinelli and the Bertinelli family. Along with Huntress's return to the Birds of Prey as they finally track down the new Oracle's lair. What I love about this series is that it not only has the action and adventure of a great DC series, but humor and emotional moments as well. Great writing and Claire Roe had been a wonderful artist for this series, but unfortunately someone else illustrated this issue. Hopefully they bring Claire back on.
