Nice and Sweet! Awesome Art!!

Strangely I liked this issue very much and this issue made me like the Batgirl series even more.

Here is my short review:

Art: This is really fantastic. The scene where the Batgirl is atop the train is absolutely stunning. See the page spread art for yourself:

Batgirl atop a train.. Amazing art!!

Story: Put it in simple words, the story is surprisingly nice & sweet too!

The romantic link between Nightwing and Batgirl is really surprising and truly could have been a separate story arc. Or DC may bring in a flashback on this, who knows? But for now this is a welcome and heart wrenching piece of story.

Now some teeny weeny negative points: However strong she comes through, there seems to be something lacking. Not in herself but in the portrayal. I think she could be a little more confident about herself. There are several parts where she doubts her abilities, she freezes at times when most needed. Well, just forget I said all that. This is just hopefully a short lived feeling. I think she is just gearing up in these issues to carve a niche for herself back again in the Bat Family. A Batgirl fan or not, this is a good one. If you have been buying Batgirl #1 and #2, I would just say go for this. Don't think much. This issue is cool. Period. Go get it...

Simple answer to that: Gail Simone knows how to write women with class and depth into their external and eternal conflicts.Plot: Mirror plants a bomb on a train filled with citizens that Batgirl tries to save but fails on her mission. Afterwards she comes across Nightwing and st...

    I think this is a strange point for the book. BatGirl just witnessed an entire train of people die, I guess she has ben hardened by years as part of the BatFamily, I just don't see it. The stuff with the mirror was good don't get me wrong, however, this seemed to step away from that about half way through. I get it that Barbrat wants to do things on her own and dosn't want the rest of the family getting involved. She just got out of the wheel chair and she wants to prove something. She doesn't w...
