    This was a really fun and solid issue. Gail Simone and co. did a great job with pacing, dialogue, and showing some of the best character interaction I have seen in a while. Jonathan Glapion and Fernando Pasarin did an excellent job with conveying the emotions BATGIRL displayed as she was fighting Huntress, or those mercenaries, or Michael Drucker. They really did a great job. All in all, if you love good acion, great character interaction, and the formation of the true Birds of Prey (not specifically named that just yet), then, you will find great joy from this issue. Highly recommend. Read Full Review

    Of course, once Helena Wayne enters the picture, it is pretty much a given that she is going to end up fighting Barbara, which makes some sense as Barbara mentions in her silent monologue, and those action scenes are really something, both for how Fernando Pasarin draw's Barbara's face and how he executes the beat-up. At times his characters are a bit too tall and thin but thankfully that only happens in an odd page here and there. The inks by Jonathan Glapion and Matt Ryan are really excellent here, as are the colours by Blond. And yes, Alex Garner delivers another rocking cover for this series, so really, the art was almost perfect here this time! Read Full Review

    Regardless of whether you have been a fan of Simones run or not youll want to read this arc. This is the second chapter of Enemies and Allies and its really hitting its stride. This issue comes highly recommended and hopefully Simone will be able to end her run, concluding in October on a high. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Brandon Stines Jul 10, 2014

    Though at times a bit slow, Batgirl #33 more than adequately continues the story it kicked off in the last issue, injecting enough action into the story to keep readers interested and excited. Writer Gail Simone and artist Fernando Pasarin are certainly building towards a grand finale, and that sense of anticipation continues throughout this issue. Read Full Review

    It looks like Barbara has snapped back to the angry woman I thought we had seen the last of.  Well traces of her at least.  While the issue starts out with raging Barbara, by the end she's back to the calculating cool headed hero I want her to be.  With this being the setup for the main fight next issue, I have to say that Simone did a great job keeping me entertained, and getting all that bothersome exposition out of the way in a interesting way.  So while this is a good issue, it just wets your palate for what's to come next.  Check it out so you're not left in the dark for the next issue..

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Jul 24, 2014

    Fernando Pasarin's pencils carry with them a realistic amount weight that add to the brutality showcased throughout this issue. That said, some panels are stronger than others, as some of his figures come off looking a little off model. Read Full Review

    I just don't think Gail's heart, or maybe her mind, was really on this one. I just learned hours ago Gail is about to be off this book. I wonder if she's just rushing to wrap things up. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 10, 2014

    Though the art still lacks consistency and the plot feels a bit old hat at the moment, this book doesn't lack suspense and feels like a real Batgirl story after a long while of waffling in and out of genres. This may be just the arc to get Batgirl up and in the ring again! Read Full Review
