Batgirl #16

Okay, so Batgirl is on the run from Gotham PD who think she's murdered a college student. The real killers are the "Order of the Scythe" (horrible name, by the way). Not only have they got Stephanie running from the police but they've stolen technology including a speed suit.

Thankfully, the Batgirl most wanted storyline is dealt with in this issue and we won't have it weighing down the title for months. Aside from their awful name, the secret society or guys dressed up as reapers aren't bad villains for the title. Okay, they aren't going to find their way into the best Bat-villain list anytime soon, but they work well enough here.

And after being framed for murder writer Bryan Q. Miller has given Stephanie the added incentive of revenge to track them down. We also get some great trademark great dialogue between Stephanie and Oracle and another appearance by "Detective McCute." It may not be the title's best, but there's plenty here worth reading. Worth a look.

[DC $2.99]
