  1. “Don’t miss the introduction of a villain destined to become Barbara’s greatest and most dangerous foe!”

    I feel like that’s been a part of every Batgirl solicit since the relaunch, and so far all we’ve gotten is an army of cookie-cutter, forgettable villains that nobody will ever use again. The last issue showed that this series has so much potential if Simone would just stop wasting time trying to invent a new villain every two issues.

  2. I can concede to your observation regarding cookie-cutter villains, but this title has definitely held its own, even in spite of the controversy surrounding the relaunch. This is a well-balanced book week after week.

  3. Easily Gail’s worst work to date.

    • If this is her worst work then I really have to read more Gail. This is not bad by any stretch. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing earth shatteringly amazing about this book, but the character itself has been fantastic. Once we get a bad guy worth talking about this series will truly take off.

  4. To be totally pedantic, you can’t be sentences to life in a mental institution.

    You can either be found guilty and sent to jail for life

    or be found not guilty by reason of insanity and sentences to a mental institution until you are deemed cured.

    • Talking from experience?

    • That may be how it works now. That isn’t how it worked in the past. Indefinite detention, forcible sterilization, and forced treatments were common practice in mental institutions through the 1970s (they were sterilizing people two towns over from me until 1974 when someone finally said “that’s probably a crime”).

  5. I liked the underlying social tone of Batgirl #10; she reminded me of Green Arrow for a minute, and their interaction during “Zero Hour” back in the day. Knightfall’s henchmen were pretty lame, but for some reason it seems like it was on purpose. Ever since the changed Batgirl’s cape back to yellow, the character seems to pop out of the page, I like it.

  6. Decent artwork inside but a lousy cover if I ever saw one.

  7. I keep waiting to care about this book. Boring.
