After a catfight with Catwoman last issue, Batgirl thinks Selina is right about these statues...Could they be made from...actual living Gothamites? But when her investigation leads her to the KGBeast and he tells how he was involved in Nightwing being shot, all bets are off, and Batgirl is faced with doing the right thing or doing what is right for someone she loves.

    This is a great issue. I think this is one of the best books DC is putting out right now. I love Castellucci's writing more with each issue and how ambitious her writing is. The art is great and it's a lot of fun to read. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 24, 2020

    The story has been fantastic. The artwork on this particular issue is by Carmine Di Giandomenico, who I feel is one of the most under appreciated artists in comics. He does a great job here as well. Overall, this was a pretty great issue in a constantly improving series. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 1, 2020

    Its nice to see Batgirl and Batwoman hanging out together, but its not like they get a lot of time together. The messiness of the overall composition of the issue echoes the complexity of Babs life. It all comes along quite well. Its a satisfying chapter in the life of Batgirl. Theres an emotional connection from reader to character.  Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jun 23, 2020

    This issue of Batgirl has a lighter tone while managing to juggle some more serious themes. That lightness really brightens up the book, and makes it an easy read that's enjoyable. While wrapping up one arc it also sets up elements that can be explored in the future, such as Barbara's relationship with Jason Bard, as well as the possibility of her moving away from working with Congresswoman Alejo or changing how she works with her. Even thought the story is moving into a totally different arc, I have hope that we may return to some of these proposed ideas soon. Read Full Review

    This is kind of the calm before the storm as Batgirl gets directly involved with "Joker War," but it also manages to just be a pretty decent issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 3, 2020

    The final page is a huge bummer for me, but the basics here are solid: Batgirl action, hero angst, a little Jason Bard romance and some nuance, slightly undermined by confusing storytelling moments and the crossover hook. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Jun 23, 2020

    Despite a solid handle on its characters, this issue gets very muddied thanks to some nearly incomprehensible action. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 23, 2020

    Batgirl #46 is an awful issue that is a slog to get through and hilarious for all the wrong reasons.  It is rough being a Batgirl fan right now, and I can only hope we get something better and soon! Read Full Review
