Batgirl #9

The first half of this issue worked really well for me. Batgirl saves a subway train full of Gotham citizens from a mad bomber, has a nice (is somewhat schmaltzy) moment with Commissioner Gordon, and then deals with the failure of not being able to save everyone. In the negative column, I'm not so sure I'm ready for a four-part story centering around the Calculator. The d-list Batman villain has been a thorn in Oracle's side since Birds of Prey, but his current reincarnation as the super-hacker super-villain with Apokolips tech just doesn't do anything for me. But I'll admit this comic has surprised me so far, so maybe, just maybe, "Flood" will be better than I expect.
