    A Comic Book Blog - Claire Smith Sep 16, 2010

    At first, I wasn't keen on the play off the stereotype that when girls get together they have pillow fights and such but I feel that it was presented in an ironic way. Nothing about being a superhero is ever "normal" or "typical". But that's what makes their relationship special: they both understand that and it bonds them. This issue rocked from beginning to end. A completely satisfying and fun read with awesome art and a masterful story. I'm so hooked on this title. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 14, 2010

    Stanley Lau's cover is gorgeous. I love the phony weathering, giving the book a tattered horror magazine or old movie poster feel. The internal art by Lee Garbett was solid, especially the pages where the two track the vampires ... some solid page construction there. It would have been nice if there was some way to more easily distinguish the two heroes. I know a lot of my analogies are food related. This issue was like lemon meringue pie: light, airy, not too filling, but absolutely delicious. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 13, 2010

    I've seen a lot of reviews trash this issue for being a silly doneinone story, which is absolutely ridiculous. This story is meant to be brief and fun and selfcontained; these are strengths, not its weaknesses. This is a bit silly and it is inconsequential, but it is also a ton of fun and extremely charming. This is one of the more entertaining comics I've read all year. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Sep 11, 2010

    Its a little early, but this book easily could have been a Halloween special. No matter how you want to read it, though, its a real treat and a nice counterpoint to the bleaker books that often dominate the superhero landscape. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 11, 2010

    Throw in several humorously drawn moments from Lee Garbett as our pair of heroines take down the Dracula's all over town, and a terrific cover by Stanley Lau, and you've got yourselves a one hellova fun comic. I wasn't kidding about the petition. I definitely want to see more of these two together. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 13, 2010

    This issue, like many issues in this series, is a done-in-one, another rarity in the comic book world nowadays. New readers can (and should, hint, hint) check this book out for a comic of a different kind. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Sep 10, 2010

    A funny issue of Batgirl. I had a laugh, but missed my sense of escapist wonder. Pick it up. Share it with your kids. Read Full Review
