    As far as art goes, I like seeing Nguyen on this book now along with Fridolfs but some of the characters seem quite sketchy, like Gage. I guess I crave a bit more detail. Read Full Review

    This was a fun issue. I'm still getting used to the art change, but the fun, coming-of-age tone of the book is rock solid. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 10, 2010

    Another month and another fun issue of Batgirl, one of DC's top titles. Between Miller's superb character work and Nguyen's clear storytelling, this issue is as technically sound as it is entertaining. I've been singing this book's praises nonstop since its debut and this issue continues that winning trend, despite a handful of stumbling blocks that keep it from reaching a Must Read level.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 11, 2010

    With all of the hullabaloo surrounding the Bat-franchise lately, this title has been a little overlooked, just as it was before Bruce Wayne returned. Through it all, "Batgirl" has maintained its consistent, invigorating high quality level of story month in and month out. After sixteen months, Batgirl has grown as a character, but "Batgirl" as a comic has not put any distance between itself and its readership. Some characters are defined by their supporting cast, others gain fame due to their rogues, but Batgirl's very existence is defined by her recognition of self and her choice to try to make things better in the way that only Stephanie "Batgirl" Brown can do so. This is Stephanie's story, and it is a real enjoyable one. Batgirl " this Batgirl " may not be the most recognizable of characters in the DC Universe, but this book makes her one of the most believable, relatable, and approachable. The holidays are here; give yourself a gift of an awesomely fun read. Check this book out. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 9, 2010

    And after being framed for murder writer Bryan Q. Miller has given Stephanie the added incentive of revenge to track them down. We also get some great trademark great dialogue between Stephanie and Oracle and another appearance by “Detective McCute.” It may not be the title's best, but there's plenty here worth reading. Worth a look. Read Full Review
