Batgirl #15

Okay, if Stephanie Brown's retelling of Bat-history doesn't tickle your fancy there's really no hope for you. Sorry. In-line with other Bat-titles, Batgirl gets back to basics with the return of Oracle, Stephanie's struggles in college (and lies to her mother), and some zany antics.

Batgirl's latest case involves the death of a student at the hands of a cult of robed figures, a missing flash drive, a new Gray Ghost, and Batgirl framed for murder.

That last part troubles me a bit as it seems were in for the proverbial "prove my innocence' storyline all too many characters have to go through. Hopefully this two-issue arc will wrap things up as quickly as it began since there's really no chance DC's going to let Batgirl go full-vigilante and drawing it out serves no purpose.

Not as good as some recent issues of Batgirl, but the trademarks that make the character and comic work are still here. Worth a look.

[DC $2.99]
