      Better than the most recent bubble gum Batgirl, but still not all that compelling.I didn't hate it? shrugs So. Babs is in Japan. <--taking a break from running her companyShe manages to run into an old friend that turns into a (maybe) love interest and spends the rest of her time there trying to find out whether or not ninja schoolgirls are after him because he's doing illegal shit. Ok, so I'm kinda confused because I thought (after reading Nightwing) that she and Dick were sorta dating. Alth [...]

      6/20/17 re-read for class on YA GN/comics with a focus on kick-ass girls. Rereading it, I liked it even less, maybe 2 stars. I had a chance to pick up the darker, Gail Simone version of Batgirl and think this pales in comparison. Then there's this disjuncture between Batgirl with PhD and CEO of a company (you can do it, girls, shatter that glass ceiling!) who goes on a trip to find herself and get in a relationship with a guy no CEO would hang out with. The tone tries for a mix of inspiring and [...]

      Batgirl’s decided to get some martial arts training in Asia and squeeze in some backpacking at the same time. But blah blah is blah blah and Babs is gonna have to blah blah to blah blah - blah? Blah. Reblah. I would ell-yoo-vee it if just one of these Afterbirth books was halfway decent but it just ain’t happening! I’ll give Hope Larson this though: Batgirl is not badly written, it’s just not at all interesting. Babs is looking for some formula from generic bad guys who’re looking to m [...]

      Well, at least this is better than Burnside Girl.A generic, uninspired story, Beyond Burnside is the sort of forgettable read that you'd expect during a series slump. I don't understand why DC are so insistent on pushing Batgirl in this new direction, especially with Rebirth offering them an easy way out. Barbara Gordon still fights crime in her stupid new costume, with everyone around her looking like idiots for not realising her identity. Her eidetic memory is treated like a superpower, albeit [...]

      ARC REVIEW Story: Parts 1-5 follow Barbara Gordon to Japan for a well-deserved “vacation” but what she is actually doing is trying to find a new edge. She has tracked down the oldest living Super-Hero, Fruit Bat, in hopes that she can learn something new. What she finds turns out to be even more valuable. Barbara runs into an old friend, someone she had lost contact with long ago, Kai. Quickly they rekindle their old friendship but this time with a bit of attraction thrown in too. Barbara re [...]

      I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. I simply don't like the "new" Batgirl/Barbara Gordon. Instead of the crime-fighting sidekick in the Batman family, the writers have turned her into a bumbling Nancy Drew-type character. I just don't get it, turning a strong female character into something like this. Sad. Anyway, this volume. I don't get the point of the "mystery" here.

      review to follow soon★★★While I knew the basics about Batgirl (Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon, computer whizz and genius with an eidetic memory, has also been the Oracle, was paralyzed but got her mobility back), I've never actually read any Batgirl titles, which meant I came into this with a bit of a fresh perspective.Beyond Burnside is the DC rebirth of the Batgirl of Burnside storyline, which saw "Babs" attempt to start a new life as a PhD student in Burnside - the hip [...]

      Batgirl, DC Rebirth Series Ratings:Batgirl, Volume 1: Beyond Burnside: ★★★Batgirl, Volume 2: Son of Penguin: Possibly TBRI really enjoyed this but it kind of fell a little flat for me. I think the biggest problem was that this was the first Batgirl comic I have picked up so I think I'm gonna go back and start from the New 52 for all the DC series I want to read and see how I go.Other than that it was fun and I read through it pretty quickly.

    10. Scott on said:

      While this wasn't that bad (however, it also meant that it wasn't that great) I felt like I was in the dark about whatever occurred prior to this volume 1. I mean, like a fair amount of unanswered questions - since I didn't read any of the Burnside stuff, but am familiar with character basics - that sometimes made it difficult to concentrate on the story. The final chapter, featuring an appearance by Poison Ivy, reminded me briefly of the (superior) classic Matheson short "Nightmare at 20,000 Fe [...]

    11. James DeSantis on said:

      Wow I couldn't even finish this. I guess it's my fault. I hadn't read ANY Batgirl since Gail stopped. So when I pick up this and in shock of how different (and worse it is) I guess I can only blame myself. So Batgirl is in Japan, a new fling, or old fling, is happening with a old lover. Thenah you guessed it, bad things happen. She's following some shady organzation of some sort? I dunno to be honest I was going in and out and Babs is so uninteresting in this little "cutesey cool" way I just hat [...]

      [Read as single issues] After carving out a little corner of Gotham for her own, Batgirl decides to leave it all behind and go globetrotting as Rebirth takes her around the world, trying to track down the infamous Teacher.This first story arc of the new Batgirl moves at breakneck pace. Each issue takes place in a different country, and the plot moves so fast that it's easy to forget what happened between issues (at least in singles. I expect the trade will read much better). The ideas behind the [...]

      **** I got a digital copy of this from DC through Netgalley in return for an honest review. ****Batgirl is one of my all-time favorite comic book heroes from any company, and she's only 2nd to Hal Jordan among the DC heroes. I was in love with Batgirl series in the New 52 while Gail Simone was writing the series. I was ecstatic when I found out she was writing the series and that Barbara Gordon was going to be Batgirl again. Gail writes Barbara Gordon better than anyone else. When she left the s [...]

    14. Cat(cat-thecatlady) on said:

      this was disappointing to say the least. I knew my first encounter with Batgirl after my dream team left would be wonky but I'm still sad. Batgirl is my favourite and I don't think they made her justice with this one. the story is kind of boring and the villain is one of the worst I've read in a long time. I kinda abhor the art and the colours used. this lacks all the fun, silliness and cuteness I liked about the previous run so much. sighfull review here: catshelf.wordpress/2017/0

    15. Artemis on said:

      So, DC, how do you get a good 'Batgirl' story? Well, aside from the obvious - rehire Gail Simone, dammit! And stop firing female writers, and while you're at it fire your employees accused of multiple cases of sexual harassment! - another obvious thing to do is, yes, let a woman write for Batgirl. Hope Larson - of 'Goldie Vance' recognition - was a decent choice, as 'Beyond Burnside' is a mystery and Batgirl is a detective. The Rebirth titles continue to look promising.I, along with quite a lot [...]

    16. Dina on said:

      This is my first Batgirl. I look forward to reading more in this series.

    17. Sesana on said:

      Yet another Rebirth book that isn't terrible, but I'm disappointed because I'd expected and hoped for so much more. Particularly on this book, with a character I love by an author whose work I've generally liked quite a lot. And yet, it just isn't doing it for me. The story is a bit generic, as in this could be just about any hero. I don't appreciate that Babs loses consciousness three times in six issues, because really? And I didn't like that she "turns off" her eidetic memory, because what do [...]

    18. Emily on said:

      I was just gonna give it a solid 3 stars because it's been enjoyable and I really like the art but I didn't see anything spectacular. But the last issue of this arc was so much fun!! Loved the addition of Poison Ivy and looking forward to the Penguin storyline. :)Beach read: #3

    19. Logan on said:

      Better than the last Batgirl run, but will still continuing reading it? Not really!

    20. Karen on said:

      No es que el cómic haya estado mal, simplemente no logró captar mi atención totalmente; el arte es aceptable pero la historia no engancha, para mi se queda como una más.

    21. Chad on said:

      Continues the Batgirl of Burnside version of Batgirl without being as cutesy or annoying. Batgirl goes on walkabout through Asia to determine what she wants to do with her life. While in Japan, she comes across an old friend Kai who's something of a bad boy. The story with the drug that makes you smarter feels very contrived, but all in all much better than Cameron Stewart's writing. Albuquerque's Batgirl looks great, even if he is too lazy to draw backgrounds.Received an advance copy from DC an [...]

    22. Robert on said:

      It was okay. It definitely felt like it was trying to appeal to the concerns and sensibilities of young adults (think college-age) or even college-bound teenagers. Trying too hard? Eh. Hard to say.I have no idea what Batgirl's been up to, since I skipped the whole Batgirl of Burnside thing that was Cameron Stewart's run after reading how weak it was supposed to be. But she's certainly not recognizable as the character I last saw in Batgirl, Volume 5: Deadline by Gail Simone. Maybe that's not ent [...]

    23. Colona Public Library on said:

      I love this Bat Girl so much. I've been very impressed with Batgirl, Volume 1: The Batgirl of Burnside series and I'm glad they are continuing with this one. You really take a journey with her as she is visiting Asia to learn some more things about herself including some martial arts. I love the idea of Fruit Bat but I wish they did some more background stuff on her because she's quite the mystery and they just kinda put her in there. She's believable as a wise teacher character with a very simi [...]

    24. Rita on said:

      2.5/5Hmmm, okay. So, I'm not the biggest fan of storylines in which Westerners go to Asian countries in order to train from some reverent martial artist. The portray of my culture as exotic and mystic is incredibly damaging and hurtful and really should stop being a part of Western media, especially in graphic novels. (Seriously, I thought we were over this). This is the second graphic novel that I've read in the past couple of months in which this has happened and I can't help but think this na [...]

    25. Maggie Gordon on said:

      I really want to like new Batgirl. I really don't. Part of the problem is that DC obviously wants to write a YA Batgirl, but she's the CEO of a major company and a PhD? She acts way too young for her position in life in these books. In fact, she feels very similar to Ms Marvel who is 16. She's supposed to be wonderfully amazing, but she acts like a self-righteous teenager most of the time. It's frustratingly incongruent. This volume wasn't anything special either. Barbara goes backpacking in Asi [...]

    26. Geppis Baltimore on said:

      Batgirl goes international! In the first half of the trade, we find Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl, on a trip to Japan to train under one of the greatest superheroes of the Far East, Fruit Bat. Along the way, she runs into an old friend from childhood, Kai, who's also traveling to visit family in China. As the two catch up, Kai is attacked by mysterious fighter bearing the mark of the 'Student'. This leads Batgirl on a journey from Japan, Singapore, Korea and Shanghai as sparks fly between her and K [...]

    27. Emma on said:

      Batgirl is by far my favourite DC superhero and possibly my favourite overall, so I tried to keep my expectations low going into this. But, as always, Batgirl does it again! I loved Hope Larson's work on Goldie Vance so I knew the story would at least be good and it really was. At first I was a little thrown by the art style as it's different to anything I've read before, but it really grew on me and I think the style fit the story line well. My favourite part was definitely the Batgirl/Ivy team [...]

    28. Amberly on said:

      Hope Larson has to be one of my favorite comic writers. The problem I had with this volume is that it's titled as number 1 but it's part of a bigger series so I was dropped right into the middle of plot and story and didn't really know anything. Also, events from past volumes were mentioned leaving me confused. I really enjoyed Larson's take on Barbara Gorden and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

    29. Brendan Nicholls on said:

      I'm not a huge fan of this arc but the character was great in the new 52. The storyline was a very miss affair but the artwork was great again. The humour and social commentary has been replaced with far fetched storytelling. Batgirl was like the Archie comic of the DC world, I want that to come back for the next chapter.
