A very appealing and confident but inexperienced Batgirl moves to Gotham's hip neighborhood and juggles friendships, fame, grad school, romance and crime-fighting. The supporting characters are appealing but the focus is rightly on Babs. The storytelling seamlessly blends contemporary computer trends with traditional costumed heroics. The stylish art and bold coloring make this a fun read.
A new creative team come on board for the character, as Barbara Gordon moves into a new neighbourhood, along with a different look and attitude. She's more of a party mindset here than the serious minded character we might more associate with as she gets settled in, dealing with issues in both identities. It's not at the same level as Gail Simone's run on the character, but it's better than a good deal out there.
This isn’t the Batgirl that I first met in Batgirl: Year One. That’s okay! Different universe, same character elements, new stories. This Batgirl, a.k.a. Barbara Gordon, is a supergenius with computers who’s starting a new life in a new neighborhood. A rash of electronic device thefts is the mystery that starts all the action. The ensuing mix of Babs as both detective and superhero stays true to the classic aspects of her character. The plot has plenty of momentum, complemented by the vibrant colors and great movement in the art. Her friends and colleagues are a diverse, very real group of people you’d want to hang out with. This is a great young adult female superhero book!
I expected more from the Artwork & Storyline.
