Batgirls #4 gives Cass and Steph some downtime within their community, which helps remind them why they became Batgirls in the first place. The issue also sees the Batgirls defeat one villain while playing right into the hands of another. This series continues to emphasize the importance of the Batgirls friendships with one another, as showcased in the climactic fight with Tutor in this issue.

Batgirls (2021) #6

May 11, 2022

Batgirls #6 sees the Batgirls defeat villains Tutor and Spellbinder, confronting their own pasts in the process. The past histories of the Batgirls are referenced, but not in a way that would alienate new readers unfamiliar with the characters. This issue elegantly ends its first arc and begins to set up its next arc.

X-Terminators (2022) #1

Sep 21, 2022

X-Terminators #1 is as hilarious as it is blood-soaked. This comic knows how silly its being and wants the reader to know it knows. Its particular brand of violence and humor may not be for everyone, but those who enjoy the concept of Dazzler roller-skating through puddles of blood chewing gum and blasting vampires are sure to love it.
