Reading Challenges: Coyer Summer Reading List
Like daughter, like father.
Over the past few months, Barbara Gordon has made some big changes to her Batgirl alter ego. She has a new look, new support team and new home base in Burnside, Gotham's trendiest neighborhood. But just when she's hitting her stride, her fahter drops a bombshell--Babs isn't the only masked crime-fighter in the family anymore. Jim Gordon is the new Batman.
After the original Batman fell fighting the Joker, the former police commissioner was given a high-tech super-suit and asked to take up the mantle. With a team of GCPD officers watching his every move, Jim Gordon's new law-and-order Batman has zero tolerance for vigilantism. He's been ordered to arrest any unsanctioned superhero in Gotham--and Batgirl is next!
Collecting: Batgirl 41-45, Annual 3, Sneak Peek
I will be the first to admit that I haven’t really liked Batgirl in Burnside, in all honesty. I am not sure. I was just never into it, but that never stops me from reading the series because I like Batgirl.
This volume, however, was better than the first volume, and it kept me interested in reading the volume and wanted to read more.
This was an interesting volume and Batgirl/Barbara Gordon is caught in a love triangle … plus one! Who doesn’t love a good love story?
I also liked the story between Barbara and her friends. She really cares for her friends – “bat” friends included. It is nice to see such a story as well.
I am looking forward to the next and final volume in this series. (New 52 ended, and Rebirth began.)
