  1. Don’t typically pull Batgirl but there’s good train wreck potential here.

  2. Looks good. I mean, I don’t feel the need to revisit the injury, but… well, maybe next year Batgirl.

  3. So conflicted. I bought the first arc and the story with Batwoman, but just unsure. I kinda dig Benes, though. Digitally, yeah…totally digitally.

  4. This title is so on the fence for me, more then anything in my sub box, but I just don’t see myself letting a #0 issue make the call. Gonna see what happens next month.

  5. love this series has been great since issue #1 and this one was one of the best 🙂

  6. I loved that from the very beginning, Batman was impressed with Barbara. I also liked her first costume; it has a little bit of everything. The timeline for Barbara is very clear now, but I still dont know how 3 Robins fit into the 5 year period.

    Please check my mini-review of Batgirl #0 here:

  7. This was a good issue. I loved Bab’s first costume as well.
