    Dylan Horrocks tries to juggle contradictory moods and situations. One moment the emphasis is on absurd, Saturday morning cartoon action and the next I'm presented with an introspective character moment. Doesn't always work, but overall I really enjoyed this comic and the art is energetic and exciting, if nothing else. I like that DC puts forth so many female driven super-hero comics, but I tend to wonder how many girls are actually reading them anyone knows the answer to that I'd like to hear it. The obvious thrust of this story is the diabolical Dr. Death, but it's not that Kevorkian guy you're thinking of. Dr. Death is a toxic agent entrepreneur who seeks to sell his services on the underworld open market, if there is such a thing. I actually found this to be much less interesting than the character stuff, but you gotta have a bad guy in a super-hero comic, I guess. Batgirl is fun and light - even if wants to pretend it isn't sometimes. Read Full Review
