    That said, I still find Batgirl to be one of the " if not the most " solid and consistent books that DC has going these days. I always want to buy and read this, no matter what. It always goes on the top of the pile. Read Full Review

    While this isn't the strongest issue of Batgirl in recent memory, it does feature all of the wit, charm, and personality that make this DC's most underrated book. Miller does a lot of setup work here, so I expect the next issue to make up for some of the more awkward moments in this one, though the big thing that keeps this from being a Must Read is the uneven effort from Ramon Bachs. This is a great comic, though, and it just barely falls short of reaching that next level. Read Full Review

    I got into Batgirl late in the game, having skimmed the first few issues and only really getting interested in the super-fun Batgirl/Supergirl team-up issue (#14). Then came the hilarious Robin team-up (#17) issue and I declared myself a full-on Batgirl enthusiast. Now, Im chomping at the bit to track down the back issues and find out just what else Id been missing this whole time that I wasnt reading Batgirl. You (yes, you) should do the same and realize the error of your ways. Batgirl is the superhero comic you need in your life. Read Full Review

    Batgirl continues to be the unsung hero of the Bat-books. In an industry of comics that are often bogged down by the overarching plot threads of an entire universe, Batgirl remains true to itself and is allowed the chance to grow organically. Read Full Review

    In the grand scheme of fiction, you need your gripping storylines and your just-plain fun stuff, and Batgirl fits the latter bill very well. Still, a little more attention to the crime-fighting aspect would help for you to take this title more seriously. Read Full Review

    Even with these minor quibbles Batgirl continues to deliver yet another good story. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Overall, though, it's another entertaining issue of "Batgirl," the little comic that could. It may just keep plugging away in the corner, doing its own thing, but overall that seems to be working to its advantage. Fun stuff. Read Full Review
