Batgirl and Nightwing are in a hospital on the trail of The Red Queen . after a Brushup with some mind controlled people the comic flashes back years ago to Batgirl and Robin on a date, er stakeout, er date as it leads to going to a party undercover. Basically the timeline flips back and forth between Dick and Barbara working years ago and in the present with a dash of their romantic sub tones.

There is a relatively intriguing larger story arc behind the somewhat silly and juvenile issue. Larson knows her target audiende, namely young girls. For anyone outside of that demographic Batgirl can be a very frustrating comic to read. Mainly because the larger interesting story is buried under fluff.

The art is solid not spectacular and not annoying in it’d style or execution.
