Not to flip flop like a politician, I believe in an earlier review of Batgirl I critiqued the art. However I love the art in this issue. It is bright and vibrant but not cartoonish. Wildgoose, Lam, and Lopes are a great team to work on Batgirl.

One of the reasons the art complements this title so well is because this is in many ways a very post modern comic for millenials. From the opening pages Larson surreptitiously slips in social justice and political bullet points without hammering the reader over the head with it.

The conclusion of the Penguin's son story begins with the son hosting a surprise and unwelcome retirement party for the Penguin. His suit has the tech to control groups of people and he uses it to try to make the retirement permanent. The remainder of the issue is basically a chase through Burnside and confrontation with Batgirl.

Batgirl under Larson’s script is very comic booky, but not in a bad way it comes complete with internal monologue that’s not used as much as should be these days in comics in my opinion. A fun issue that touches lightly on serious issues but with a deft enough touch not to weigh down the comic.

Rating: 7 /10
