Batgirl is trapped inside her own mind, where anything can happen. And she is desperate to bust out, but only if she can pierce the multiple layers of mental manipulation. But in order to do so, she’ll have to cast aside both Barbara Gordon AND Batgirl, and become everything she is not.
issue’s artwork from Scott Godlewski is not as stylized as some of the book’s
previous artists, but that’s okay. It remains consistent and comparable to
previous issues, and Godlewski is clearly a superb artist.
Batgirl may be one of DC’s most under-appreciated titles. Not because of the strength of its starring character (which is considerable), but because its Hope Larson seems to have a simple strategy: tell good stories. Not great stories, not epic stories, but good, solid tales, and she seem to do it consistently. Many comic book series have ups and downs, but Batgirl has a consistent quality other titles should envy.
