Barbara Gordon was always meant to be Batgirl, and these guys really get that. Welcome home, Babs.
Spandex superheroes still dominate the market, but the people behind the masks are slowly becoming as diverse as the people reading each issue.
If you like to smile and feel good, this is the comic for you. If all you want is gritty grim characters... read this issue, and see what a smile feels like on your face. I am an old-school Batgirl fan. If she isn’t Barbara Gordon, I don’t really care. I didn’t care for Cassandra Cain, and I certainly didn’t care about Stephanie Brown stepping into the role. I read the first few issues of the new series so that I could have an informed opinion if someone asked me about the title at the store, but that is it. So why did I read Batgirl #17?
