This comic series is what would have been if the 90's tv show actually had decent writing instead of borrowing clips from super sentai.

It took me to the end of this issue to realize, reading Harley isn't as fun anymore. This title used to be a highlight on my pull list but now I read through an issue of Harley's shenanigans and think, didn't a team up with a superhero against a mob boss and evil alien pervert already happen?

Another disconnected issue all over the place. Hitch's JLA crashed and burned for a reason and DC then rewards him with their flagship book. It's unbelievable. This issue shows the biggest flaw of the entire series, it feels too far removed from the rest of the DC Rebirth universe.

It's very typical crossover stuff that doesn't take a lot of thought to write but then again this comic is supposed to be fun and that it is.

If I'm honest, with the direction Larson is taking this book, they should retitle it Barabara Gordon Rebirth rather than Batgirl.

This was a good event and it helped that it was relatively short, released on time, and concluded in less than two months. However, they really shortchanged one of the more threatening supervillains in Eclipso with this event. For a villain I consider as dangerous as Steppenwolf, he was dispatched way too easily. Obviously he's not dead or destroyed but not a great characterization of him. Also ma more
