Gail brings back Babs in a fun, weird issue- possibly as a trial run for her to take back over on Batgirl or Birds of Prey? One can only hope. Tom Derenick comes on this issue as a fill-in/support artist, which is too bad, because Dale Eaglesham’s work is so good, it shouldn’t really be buddied up with anyone else’s. There were a few moments where the art didn’t quite hit home for me, like one of the early faces Babs/Batgirl makes where she looks like she got cheek implants AND cat scratches across her whole cheek. But it was just a bit of an “artistic freedom” taken with the panel, and it just didn’t pay off. I loved the humorous onomatopoeia from the dust-up fighting between Catman and Batgirl where we see the “biff zap pow” turned into “punch bite handsome selfie!” which is just how Gail puts her fingerprints on a book like this, and I love it. The scenes with Strix and Porcelain, while being as far from “action-y” as possible, actually served as my favorite part of this issue. It was really a gutshot to see how Strix handled herself after her “makeover” and the emotional weight of that scene really stuck with me. Ralph Dibney and his weird murder-y brainwashed estranged wife was a moment that really felt out of place for me, and I really hope that we get something more from this moment going forward, because if it plays out in a mundane way, I will not be very pleased. Overall, though- this book was fun, and I would love Batgirl to come back to this little slice of suburban anti-hero heaven anytime she wants!
