Where Will Batgirl Be Beyond Burnside?

Bleeding Cool reported Batgirl leaving Burnside on a road trip to find herself last month. Headed for Japan, Mark Doyle explained that Barbara will continue… “that vibe of a young, twenty-something superhero, carving out her own little corner in the coolest, scariest city in the world.” My hope is that by the “twenty-something vibe” they don’t mean throwing […]

Enough Batgirls To Go Around…Gail Simone Agrees

Surprise! I love Batgirl. Bigger surprise…I love Gail Simone’s Batgirl. With a new creative team on the horizon for the future of Barbara Gordon, it’s nice to take a look at what Simone thinks on the matter.

How do you feel about smart, character driven stories with a precise eye for detail and emotion? What about […]
