The Batgirls’ investigation leads them to believe new street artist Tutor is responsible for putting innocent Gothamites under trance, using his murals and then stealing their stuff. Luckily for them, Tutor is hosting an underground art show at the old shipyard tonight, so Babs and the Batgirls go undercover as attendees, so the Batgirls can prove to Babs once and for all that Tutor’s the one behind all the strange crimes! And to make matters worse, Babs bumps into Tutor’s ex at the event! Oof!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 10, 2022

    The subtle overlay of tiny elements of interaction between the three leads is cleverly placed over a larger story with its own emotional resonance. As the series settles into its third issue, the series has really found an enjoyable rhythm between action, drama, and something more. As sad as it is to see Babs out of the mask again, the new team feels like a perfect fit for her that should work quite well for a hopefully long run in the future. Read Full Review

    The situation in the Hill seems to be becoming more and more dangerous, as Tutor manipulates others by using his mind-control gas. In the midst of all this peril, it is more important than ever that the Batgirls support each other, but Stephs insecurities over being susceptible to mind-control may throw a wrench in the team dynamics going forward.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 8, 2022

    This book continues to be one of the biggest surprises at DC in recent years, a non-stop chaotic romp through Gotham combined with some surprisingly tense plotting and great characterization for the three Batgirls. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 8, 2022

    Batgirls #3 is another fine issue that is of a certain type of comic we don't get nearly enough of. Between quality and quantity of content focused on character, it's one of those comics that you really enjoy reading and makes you feel good as you share the lives of Barbara Gordan, Stephanie Brown, and Cassandra Cain.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Feb 16, 2022

    'Batgirls' continues to soar high powered by the depth of character work being showcased and the fact that the creative team shows no fear in building their own part of this rich tapestry and never shying away from why comic books are fun. Every bit of this series has a powerful energy that blends fun and seriousness in just the right proportions that make everything work. This is the book that Batgirl fans have been waiting for.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 9, 2022

    Jorge Corona along with colors by Sarah Stern and Ivan Plascencia and lettering by Becca Carey deliver what feels like a pop art explosion. The series is a perfect match of attitude and visuals. The colors are bright and jump from the page creating a feel of kinetic energy that's beyond fitting for the series and characters. The art reflects the main villain who's a graffiti artist and the use of colors all comes together in a solid synergy of style and story. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Feb 10, 2022

    It was cool seeing the Batgirls out on another mission after having some downtime last issue. You can already tell they're learning how to be a team in such a short time, and their chemistry is getting stronger by the page. What was partially nice about Batgirls #3 is that they weren't all in agreement on Tutor being the one they were looking for, but they still worked together despite their doubt to help find out the answer. Teamwork, you love to see it. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 12, 2022

    This comic maintains a general quality with fun characters and fun interactions, both with each other and with the slowly expanding cast. But this specific issue feels a bit like treading water, as the villains aren't particularly deep. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 9, 2022

    Batgirls #3 does a great job presenting Tutor as menacing force that Barbara Gordon, Stephanie Brown, and Cassandra Cain have to work together to overcome. In the process the dynamic between the three Batgirls is able to shine as the strength of the series. Highlighting that strength made the ending with Seer further push how there are many things to look forward to seeing develop in Batgirls. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 8, 2022

    Batgirls #3 increasingly shows this arc suffers from a fatal lack of focus. There are three villains at various stages of activity level, but it's not clear who the Batgirls should be prioritizing or why. Not a good place to be when you're at the mid-point of a 6-issue run. The art is fine is you like stylized anatomy, but this issue shows some weakness in the art choice due to lack of clarity. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Feb 10, 2022

    On the whole, I love the camaraderie between all three of the Batgirls and their interactions with each other, and the minor details included in the story, such as Barbara's love of coffee, Cassandra's unicorn onesie, and the employment of emoji's to illustrate a character's emotions. In addition, I am a big fan of the way in which Cassandra, in particular, is drawn, and how extremely expressive she is. Those two components continue to make this series quite enjoyable for me. Lastly, at this point in the series, I would say it is a fun and exciting read for younger audiences primarily but still amusing for more mature readers. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Feb 8, 2022

    This issue slows down a little bit and focuses on one of the plots the series has been juggling so far: figuring out just what the renegade artist Tutor is up to. It's got mind control, takes shots at the Batgirl's self esteem, and made me laugh more than once. While it still feels a little busy and rushed, I feel like it is starting to find itself, and I'm hopeful that the next few issues will solidify that feeling. Read Full Review
