    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 28, 2018

    Batgirl takes the issue off from its overarching story to do a done-in-one team-up issue that's probably one of the most enjoyable issues of the series. Read Full Review

    BATGIRL #21 features Batgirl teaming up with her father, Commissioner Gordon. Their unique dynamic makes for an interesting read. Also, the overall color scheme of this issue was visually pleasing. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Mar 28, 2018

    Hope Larson gives a story that reckons back to comics of old with an emphasis on the character interactions between Commissioner Gordon and his Batdaughter, and good old-fashioned detective work. There's a lot of silliness here that can't be rationally explained in any way, and the artwork warbles a bit, but overall this is just a fun book with a simple premise quickly brought to a conclusion. And if you like big gooey irrational purple monsters, even better! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Mar 28, 2018

    Overall, this was a good detective story with characters you care about. It's the kind of story that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, and with some of the comics out there right now, I like having a pleasant story with a happy ending to read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Mar 28, 2018

    The artwork for this issue was pretty decent. The monster had texture and depth drawn in, and it also gave the impression that he was semitransparent, even when there wasn't a person visible inside him. For some reason Batgirl's expressions towards the end of the issue started looking a little funny; less detail on a longer face. I'm not sure what that was about. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Apr 1, 2018

    Once again, this is just a filler till a big arch starts and it's a cute one. There is still the action and suspense of lots of Science-Detective talk to make it a Batgirl comic. But it's a nice one to add to the Batgirl collection more so because it shows the strong bond between the Gordon's, in and out of the Mask. Let's hope it stays that when bigger arch's occur.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Mar 29, 2018

    While I'm willing to allow for anything being possible in comic book science, a make-up company accidentally creating life with a face-wash formula is more than I can believe. Throw in some sloppy artwork from Scott Godlewski (who seems to have some trouble with drawing eyes and depicting details beyond close-ups) and some odd color choices from John Rauch and this is one Bat-Book that can be easily skipped.

    This issue might have a few weak moments, but it sneaks up on you, and ends up delivering a delightful father-daughter tale. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 28, 2018

    A Gotham City connection that should be exciting falls flat when the content of the story proves stale. The new art team handles their duties superbly, but somehow the usual chuckle-worthy situation isn't here. Maybe it will be back in the next issue. Read Full Review
