  1. I like this new villian, very different and I can see this becoming one hell of a mess for Babs as the Court of Owls is coming soon…. This is very underated and has pleased me since issue #1 and this title has some very good detailed artwork and Gail is writing some very good drama and has started move Babs out of the feel sorry for herself thing and now onto lets prove we are still the real deal!!


  2. James Jr’s back!

  3. What an ending, what an ending!! This was very unexpected and I could have sworn I heard thunder and seen flashes of lighting for real as I turned the page and saw Ol’Jimmy. (Building up horror music and then DA-DA-DA!) I will say I really did not know much about Jimmy until the end of the old DCU and now I must say this guy is so f’ing creepy!! I like the Batgirl title a lot and gave this one a 4 straight rating and now that she is working on the Batgirl thing instead of feeling sorry it has made this so much better. Great artwork as well.


  4. Great ending.

  5. This is definitely getting better, issue by issue. But it’s still not very good. maybe 5 or 6 months from now it will be up to par. The art is really boring generic comic book fluff though, that needs to be remedied soon.

  6. Last page was CR-AZY!
