The Batgirls are together, and even when they’re lying low, Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown are sure to stir up some trouble. Barbara Gordon aka Oracle has moved the Batgirls to a new neighborhood after the entire city of Gotham thinks they blew up the Clocktower. Now the Batgirls are trying to look for a serial killer in their new neighborhood. Plus, there’s the issue with the Saints, an extremist cell born from the Magistrate.
Oracle asks the Batgirls to keep a low profile and avoid technology, but Cass and Steph are not accustomed to ignoring crimes. Steph and Cass start observing their neighbors from the window of their new apartment, and they see some strange things. First, there’s a neighbor who could be a serial killer disposing of a body in a dumpster. Then, when they investigate, they find the Saints who are doing the bidding of Simon Saint, believed to be dead. But worst of all, there’s a street artist named Tutor, who is asking the people of Gotham to rise up against cops, doctors, and the bats. Somehow he’s hypnotizing these people, and Steph is being pulled in.
I’m thoroughly enjoying these issues of Batgirls so far. The art style from Jorge Corona is edgy and fun. I love the relationship of the Batgirls as well as their relationship with Oracle. Written by Michael Conrad and Becky Cloonan, Batgirls is a light hearted, upbeat and fast paced story, and I can’t wait for more. Even if you haven’t read the lead up to Batgirls, jump on in and join the fun.
