    This is a great issue. It's a cool stand alone story that's a lot of fun. The art is incredible and the issue stars two of the coolest characters in the DC Universe. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Daniel Levine Jul 26, 2017

    Batgirl #13 is a fun one-shot proving why Batgirl is the most relatable character in the DC Universe. It's not a major story, but shows a fun side to Barbara Gordon. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Jul 26, 2017

    Batgirl #13 acts as a bit of a breather before a new arc kicks in next issue, but it also serves as a nice jumping-on point for any readers out there curious about giving writer Hope Larson's celebrated take on the character a try. Is it a fun and sweet done-in-one adventure that shows the love for the classic super-hero caper? You betcha. It's a pleasant and fun read that has a great shape to it and certainly would make any new reader more than willing to join Batgirl and her creative team on their next adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 28, 2017

    Batgirl #13 is delivered a fun, intimate one-shot story that fans of the series will enjoy. Hope Larson nails the dialogue between Batgirl and Catwoman as they worked on a case that was deeply personal to the latter. Involving a young girl that looks up to Batgirl shows how far our main character has come. The ending will leave fans of the series with a big smile on their face and that is exactly what we all want from a comic book we read on monthly basis to accomplish. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Benjamin Birdie Jul 31, 2017

    "Batgirl" is at its best when it finds an interesting way to adapt the trends of today into the structure of a traditional Bat-story. This issue does that very well indeed. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Charlie Wylie Jul 26, 2017

    This issue was an improvement over the last installment, even if it skewed a little cutesy. This series is designed to attract a younger audience, but it has lots of good moments. I am looking forward to see the team up with Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 26, 2017

    This one isn't winning any prizes, but it's easy to read and well-drawn and tells a cute (albeit somewhat nonsensical) story. I feel like there's a battle of tone going on here between Larson's light-hearted script and Miranda's heavy darks throughout. For a kid's book, this works (and who doesn't love a story about a dog-napper getting her due?). But ultimately it's kind of throwaway. The best of it is Batgirl and Catwoman teaming up for a silly outing and for the adept way Larson handled that, I bumped this up a point. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 26, 2017

    This comic book is just silly. The story is contrived, the situations unbelievable, and the main character is a simpleton. But the artwork is really something to see in this issue. So if you've got an inclination towards the visuals, or if you like laughing at silly comics, then maybe you could give it a peek. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jul 26, 2017

    Still, overall, Batgirl #13 makes for two in a row that are non-essential reading. You can take it or leave it, but until this series is back on its new arc with a grander adventure for Batgirl, the chance for plot development, and signs of character growth, I suggest you leave it. There are better Batgirl stories to be told, and if history is any indication they should be their way soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Aug 2, 2017

    This is another filler issue between story arcs. And frankly full of fluff. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jul 27, 2017

    A cute but ultimately forgettable story that doesnt explore the potential depth of its characters. Read Full Review
