New 52 – Batgirl #21 review

It’s time to head back into the miserable world of Barbara Gordon again. There should really be a tagline on every issue that just says “Abandon Hope, All Ye Who Enter Here.” This issue concludes the 2-part Ventriloquist…

New 52 – Batgirl #20 review

As you can tell by the score, I obviously don’t recommend Batgirl #20. In fact, I pretty much hated it. Gore, magic, eidetic memory… there’s a pretty long list of things I don’t enjoy seeing in a Batgirl…

New 52 – Batgirl #19 review

Gail Simone returns to Batgirl and delivers an issue with a lot of big revelations and gruesome action (seriously, why is the Batgirl series so damn violent?), but I wasn’t fond of the way James Jr. was portrayed….

New 52 – Batgirl #18 review

I can’t say I cared much for this one and now that this short 2-part story is over it definitely looks like it was all little more than filler. It’s as if we were supposed to get a…

The solicits I saw for this week’s Upcoming Comics article were wrong and now is indeed the time for Ray Fawkes to begin his two month stint on Batgirl. As you’ll recall, there was a big controversy in…

New 52 – Batgirl #16 review

Gail Simone is back on Batgirl

Just days after being fired, writer Gail Simone is back on Batgirl. The internet made a lot of noise when the news of Simone’s abrupt termination was revealed. It seems like DC listened to what the fans had…

New 52 – Batgirl #15 review

Last month’s Batgirl #14 laid it’s claim as the best Death of the Family tie-in yet (overthrown, in my opinion, by Batman & Robin #15) and one of the best cliffhangers this year: Joker proposing to Barbara with her…

Ray Fawkes fills in as new Batgirl writer

I don’t usually look at the solicits because I like to be surprised with my comics but the latest news on Gail Simone had me wondering what DC would advertise for the month of March. According to the…
