Publisher's Weekly Review

A legendary heroine goes to trendy new places in this upbeat volume. After years of painful recovery from the gunshot that severed her spine, Barbara Gordon has a new home, a new costume, and a new attitude. Burnside, Gotham's hippest hamlet, has welcomed her with open arms and a tempest of hashtags-this Batgirl is as much a viral star as she is superhero. Her villains are similarly current: a pair of murderous anime cosplayers, and a buzz-hungry artist. Tarr's art brings new life to an old character, transforming bleak Gotham into a fantasy of young professional life-it's a bold, stylish, and tremendously fun debut. Writers Fletcher (Gotham Academy) and Stewart (Sin Titulo) settle into a cheery groove, though the stories rely a little too heavily on gimmicks without digging into the deep bench of supporting cast. But overall it's a charming romp and a wonderful setup for future adventure. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Library Journal Review

While most attempts at updating an established character to tap into the youth culture zeitgeist feel phony and fall flat, this reinvigoration of Batgirl manages to be big fun and actually tuned in to Millennial culture. This volume follows Batgirl as she moves into the Brooklyn-esque borough of Burnside and tells tales of her efforts to balance friends, heroics, her studies, and her social media profile. The supporting cast is diverse and fully developed, and the action is intense, rendered in a bright, dynamic style that evokes animation with just a hint of Japanese influence. It is superhero comics through a lens of beloved indies, such as Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez's Love and Rockets; it is a combination that could easily crash but is thankfully thoroughly enjoyable. Verdict Sure to please superhero fans of all ages, with the exception of those too devoted to the grimmer, grittier aspects of the Batman mythos, and should have some appeal to open-minded fans of independent comics curious to check out the cream of the big mainstream publisher crop.-Thomas L.
