harleyquinnhawkgirl's Batgirl #10 - The Flood, Part 2 review

Avatar image for harleyquinnhawkgirl

Imagine Chris Redfield and Stephanie Brown working together.


In the beginning Calculator is showing is dead son his master plan and how he's going to try and revive him and get Oracle. Batgirl is doing a normal crime and that's pretty much it for the beginning. Detective Gage goes into Oracle's office and is followed in by Stephanie. They already know eachother as Batgirl and Detective, but he doesn't know that she's Batgirl. So they get to know eachother a little better and he leaves. Wendy is directed to Oracle's hideout. She has to be kept there for her own safety. Calculator is setting up his big machine and it launches. Oracle is teaching class and these kids who were looking at their phones are now techno zombies and attack Oracle. Luckly Oracle can defend herself and gets out of the room. It seems that whoever is on a technology device will be hypnotized by Calculator. It gets down to just Oracle and Batgirl alone outside in the street with hoardes and hoardes of techno zombies. They were defending themselves pretty good until Oracle saw her dad hypnotized. They captured her. Batgirl is alone and surrounded. Coming from the roof is a hypnotized Catwoman, Huntress, and Man-Bat. I thought the story didn't get good until the middle and the end because the beginning was kind of slow. I loved seeing Gotham's heroes hypnotized. Now on to the details. The cover was awesome. It had a really different look from all the other issues and it popped out at you. I really don't like the penciling in Batgirl. It's very sketchy and they don't do far away characters well. I do love the coloring though. I also do like Stephanie's fighting skills. When she did the kart wheel kick in the beginning it was just so cool. Batgirl's dialogue is always so funny. She is like the girl version of Peter Parker dialogue wise. I love seeing Oracle and Batgirl's friendship and how they fought together. My favorite pages were 5,7,19,20,21,22. I am giving this issue 4 techno zombies out of 5.

     The Good This issue continues the AWESOME storyline set up by the previous issue. (#9) We haven’t really seen this fun of a storyline in this titles first few issues. Hopefully this level of storytelling will continue on in the book for issues to come. This ending/cliffhanger is a great and makes you impatient for next month’s issue The art in this issue complements the story quite well also. The Bad This is part 2 of the story arc so if you haven’t bought the issue that preceded this one you ...

    I don't care what you say, I like Stephanie Brown. There, I said it.  Everyone complains that she isn't Cassandra Cain. That's the point. In fact, she's almost the opposite. So quit your griping, Cass will be back eventually and just enjoy this for what it is.   So far, this Calculator business is my favorite events of the series. Steph is slowly becoming worthy of the title of Batgirl. This issue was a lot deeper than the usual 'Spider-Man problems' Steph was having in her personal life. I did ...
