After narrowly escaping the mazes of her own mind, Batgirl swings back into action to help Jacob Cesaro, an old classmate who has recently made some bad life decisions. Little does she know he's now Two-Face's latest recruit-and the key to his plans to take over the city! But Jacob's not in it for the money and power promised by one of Gotham City's greatest villains...he's got something much more valuable in mind!

    This issue was a great read and the creative team knocked it out of the ballpark. I wouldn't mind seeing them as the regular writer and artist, but I think they are just filling in. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue. The art is wonderful; the characters look good and the colors provide a solid tone. I enjoy how Aldridge deals with how Gotham affects the people within and vice versa. There's a lot of fun dialogue as well. The issue is a stand alone story that is a lot of fun to read and I recommend checking it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Jun 27, 2018

    Ultimately, this is a solid issue with a lot of nice character moments for Barbara. She gets a chance to show off her tough-as-nails, Batman-esque side when she's chasing down criminals on her motorcycle. She also shows off her brilliant side (in the vein of Oracle), too. Whereas a lot of issues out this week are part of an overarching series, it's nice to get a simple one-off story like this. Sometimes what you need most is a nice morality tale with a few jokes sprinkled in, and this issue delivers. Read Full Review

    I would quite happily read a continuation of this story arch. I'd love for Aldridge to have a lengthy run withBatgirl. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jun 27, 2018

    Overall, as a standalone, this is about as good as it gets. Look forward to more, because if they're like this, it's going to be a refreshing break full of mini adventures for Batgirl. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 27, 2018

    This is really what I want from a Batgirl comic: smart Babs who loves her dad, villains with plots suited to her particular strengths, lots of action, lots of heart, and strong visuals throughout. While this book doesn't break any new ground nor does it have particularly high stakes, it's just a solid story and a nice palette cleansing read if you have heavier books on your pull-list.

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Jul 2, 2018

    Batgirl is still entertaining as always, and Two-Face is a pleasure to see. Another fun issue with its usual message at the end that makes you think. Hopefully a larger storyline is on its way from all these self-building issues Barbra is having. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jun 27, 2018

    This was a decent issue, all things considered. It had a solid plot, but it probably could have been stretched out into two issues if they wanted. That would have allowed for more details, more buildup, and more time for the resolution. But it wasn't too rushed, so it isn't all that big of a deal in the long run. Read Full Review

    Maybe this would have been a bit better as a two-parter, but it's still a thoroughly enjoyable done-in-one. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 1, 2018

    Batgirl #24 is added a great standalone story that strengthens the overall library of this volume of Batgirl. Shawn Aldridge stepped in big to deliver a story that looked to be about Batgirl clashing with Two-Face and instead delivered a twist that made this issue even better. The twist made Batgirl's latest adventure resonate emotionally as it tied closely to her past. Even if you haven't picked up an issue of Batgirl before this is a great starting point as you get everything you need to know in one tightly written comic. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Jun 28, 2018

    Solid first outing for the title in the post-Larson Batgirl. There are a few places that could be improved alongside some terrific elements. But overall a good book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 27, 2018

    A one-off story about Batgirl fighting crime and bumbling a bit while righting wrongs. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this was the character I remember from the Before Time–the Long, Long Ago. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Quinn Morris Jul 2, 2018

    In fact, it's the best issue of Batgirl we've had in a while " although that's a bit like saying it's the least soggy Cheerio in the cereal bowl. The art's fine enough. It's decent. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jun 27, 2018

    Whilethe story has layers of merits, the artwork is a little disappointing. ScottGodlewski is good, but this issue is lacking something " an energy levelthat Im used to seeing from previous issues. I dont begrudge him that, assome days the creative well runs dry. But heres hoping hell be back in hisusual fine form ere too long. Read Full Review
