    I literally laughed pretty damn hard four different times over the course of reading this comic book. Sure, the story was kind of weird, but anytime I laugh THAT many times over the course of a comic usually indicates the comic was VERY good. Bryan Q. Miller really is a hell of a writer, as this comic once again showed. It was just a good, dumb, fun, one and done comic. One of those comic books where you could turn off your brain, sit back and unwind with. I can guarantee this will be the best Valentine's tale about a Witch Boy and a were-cat you will EVER read!

    In a week full of wellcrafted comics, what really gave Batgirl the edge was the fact that, not only was it supremely put together thanks to some amazing work from the creative team, it was also extremely enjoyable. The charm of this series is turned up to eleven in this issue. I never thought that any comic featuring Klarion the Witch Boy could top the Rankings, but this issue earned the spot easily thanks to the stellar work of Miller and Nguyen. A lot of folks still scoff at the high praise that this series has earned from its devoted fanbase, which is unfortunatethis is one of DC's finest comics. Everything about this issue screams Read Full Review

    The art, however, felt right in this one. The shading on Limbo Town helped to make it seem a disorienting place and helped to switch up the feel of the story. Though I still enjoyed reading this issue " for nothing other than I really love Stephanie and what I have read of her book until this point " on the whole, this wasn't the strongest story or the best example of what Miller is normally doing so well with Batgirl.

    Once again, Batgirl proves that being a simple book with a simple focus can sometimes be what is best for the character. Read Full Review

    Of course this includes dimension jumping, trying to prevent herself from being burned at the stake, fighting off a Witch Boy's cat (which turns out to be a man-sized vicious were-cat), and even kissing Witch Boy in front of her friends. Weird, but also worth a look. Read Full Review

    Still, at the end of the day this issue of "Batgirl" is lacking the normally strong punch that each issue provides. I suppose in the long run every series has its share of just all right issues. But as someone who loved that "Seven Soldiers" mini-series, I do find it to be a pity that it had to be this month's that just turned out to be all right. Read Full Review

    Silly Batgirl fun on Valentine's day. Not necessary to buy for the sake of continuity, but probably important for hardcore Stephanie Brown fans and completist collectors. Read Full Review
