Batgirl + Proxy vs. Slipstream – Oracle = disaster! With Oracle out of the picture, Stephanie Brown and Wendy Harris throw everything their newly upgraded firewall has at superspeed villain Slipstream (including Batgirl's new car). When the dust settles, will Team Batgirl be able to pick up the pieces?

    All in all, I was pleased with this issue. Not every single one can be 100 percent amazing but this is consistent in its quality. Art = skillful. Writing = masterful. Overall product = fabulous! Read Full Review

    The world of "Batman, Inc." may seem overwhelming to some. The array of Bat-titles boggles the mind. For my $2.99, though, this book won't be beat by Batman-related title or, well, almost any other title each month. Read Full Review

    Batgirl tends to carry you away just by being charming and fun, but it really needs more mission substance to be a true superhero title. Miller takes steps in that direction, but there's still a ways to go. Read Full Review

    Even if the central relationship to the comic seems to be going away, it's tongue-in-cheek humor is still very much in display here (including an impatient Steph struggling to get through class). Batgirl also creates some new super-duper Batarangs and takes her new ride, "The Compact," out on its first mission. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Meh. I don't know what it was about this issue, but it just didn't do much for me. I mean technically it was fine, we learned about the villains, Steph set up the electro-magnetic-gooperangs earlier in the issue, the story moved smoothly, and the end saw the villain arrested, with the next threat already being prepped. However, I'm just not all that fond of these Order of the Scythe guys... They just don't really impress me much. Maybe when their secretive leader is revealed I'll change my tune, but for now? I wish they'd just go away. Read Full Review
