    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jul 13, 2022

    I'm just sort of stunned. This is a wonderfully complex title with fun and touching relationships. The series gets the details right, the details that make the characters engaging and relatable to the real world. You're pulling for these guys! Not just Dick and Babs, but Steph and Cass as well as they are sort of carving out their own superhero family as a subset of the larger Bat-family. The overall vibe is one of positivity, and it's lovely. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 13, 2022

    The second major plot arc of the series completes with another hugely satisfying conclusion. Theres a great sense of momentum being built and a genuine feeling of character development in and amidst the team as the series reaches the end of the second third of its first year. The clever swashbuckling mixes with the dark damage of one Batgirl and the cheerier humor of another (who happens to serve as series narrator.) Its a hugely appealing dynamic that Conrad and Cloonan have developed for a delightful action series.  Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jul 12, 2022

    This chapter marks the end of a fast-paced story arc involving the Seer. I really enjoyed this story. Not only do fans get to see their favorite Bat Couple on a "date night, there is a cameo from a famed Gotham villain that is sure to delight. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 12, 2022

    Mostly a locked-room search with a whole lot of chaotic action, this issue is a lot of fun. How much you enjoy it will depend on your tolerance for Dick and Babs' couple banterwhich can lean a little too heavily on the cutesy side at times, as they bicker about him sneaking advanced looks at their favorite streaming show.

    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark Jul 13, 2022

    This was a great issue. I loved the furthering of the plotlines, while still leaving room for a few more issues!Batgirls#8 was a fun, fast-paced read. If you love Babs, Cass, and Steph, then where have you been? Pick up this series and get to love them even more. The relationships between them have grown, which is such a great thing to see. I'm also very happy that there is more to be had! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jul 13, 2022

    While there are aspects of this issue I'd have liked to have seen done a little different, like Barbara's interactions with Seer, I had quite a bit of fun with it. As an avid Dick and Babs fan I always like seeing them together, and the couple felt like the highlight of the issue. It was nice to see Barbara take center stage again, and even nicer to have a short arc that really focused on what it was doing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 12, 2022

    Batgirls #8 wraps up the conflict with the Seer and the Saints with light (read: low-tension) resolution that puts the saints out of commission and takes away Seer's power (for now). The art style and the story focus are significantly better than in the previous issue, but the coloring is not good, and the lack of story tension leads to a forgettable ending. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Hannan Mouawad Jul 13, 2022

    In the end, the Batgirls successfully kicked butt and, with some help from Nightwing, incapacitated the Saints, saved Seer, and ensured everyone got home safe and alive. It's a win in anyone's book, and despite the craziness of the evening and near-death experiences, Barbara and Dick were able to finish their date after all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 12, 2022

    FINAL THOUGHTSBatgirls #8 is a comic book that gets in its own way of finding success. Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad just can't help themselves with how overly written this comic book. It gets to the point you are left wondering if there is trust in this story that is supposed to wrap up the Seer and The Saints story was worth telling. The only thing that saves Batgirls #8 is the good artwork, when given the chance by the writing, by Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi Read Full Review
