When the Grey Ghost puts himself in harm's way to save Gotham City from the Reaper's sound-wielding Harmony, it's up to Batgirl to save the day. If Batgirl has her way, her first team-up with the Grey Ghost will be her last with the Grey Ghost – assuming they both make it out alive.

    As usual, I liked Batgirl a lot and appreciate the writing, the art and the entire package. I was happy to see Dustin Nguyen back on this issue; the cover is fantastic! His style on the page is honed and skillful in the grand sense; the pages depict action so well. But there were some facial close-ups that seemed a little unfinished, to me. All in all, two thumbs up as always. Read Full Review

    With Nguyen back on board, hopefully consistently, I have little doubt that Batgirl will continue to meet or exceed expectations month after month. Read Full Review

    This issue gives you the more serious side of Batgirl"and it's a good look. I wouldn't mind a little bit more of this kind of thing, since Miller does pretty well at it. Read Full Review

    Well, a lot of stuff certainly happened here, no? Proxy has decided to head to Nanda Parbat, leaving Batgirl without an advisor since Barbara Gordon/Oracle has been busy with the Birds of Prey and her other Batman Inc. related duties. The Grey Ghost revealed his true colors by handing the leader of the Order of the Scythe the DNA collector that Harmony lost during her battle with Batgirl, and Batgirl is still trying to get to the bottom of just who's behind the Order, as well as what their plans are. I have to say, most of DC Comics may have gone to hell in a hand basket, but at least the majority of the Bat-books are still delivering top-notch stories. Read Full Review

    The latest issue also shows us how far the new Grey Ghost is going to go in order to protect Batgirl, even if that means betraying her to her enemies. I'm sad that with everyone else leaving this is the character who seems to be sticking around, but we'll have to wait awhile to see how this storyline plays itself out. Worth a look.

    My production complaints aside, Batgirl #21 is another solid issue in this underrated series. Sales figures suggest that the book is doing pretty decent, but I feel like they could be better. Batgirl should be put in the hands of every single Buffy the Vampire Slayer reader chomping at the bit for Season 9 to come out. Read Full Review

    Nguyen is a great fit for this book, and a coup. Miller is lucky to have him, and I hope he'll continue to bring his A-game while he has one of the best pencilers in the business at his disposal. And Stephanie Brown is lucky to have them both. Read Full Review
