    You Don't Read Comics

    Cloonan and Conrad have been playing around the edges of the Gotham City milieu. Theres an intricate and nuanced understanding of the psyches of all three members of the team. With the eleventh issue, they dive directly into something far more central to Batman-related storytelling. They do so in a way that maintains the cleverly witty dynamic between Cass, Steph, and Babs. Conrad and Cloonan are expanding Gotham City much more than many of the other attempts that are currently on the comics rack.

    ‘Batgirls’ is a series that anyone can point to with certainty as an example of what a great comic superhero comic book can be, and maybe should be, as it taps into a classic type of energy with modern sensibilities. A totally whimsical fun light adventure that comes with a sharp bite, but plenty of laughter and bright vivid gorgeous visuals that pop right off the page.

    Overall, this is probably the messiest issue of the series, both in art and pacing, but its Cass and Steph are still such fun characters that I maintain this is the best spotlight either of them have gotten in a very long time.

    This is such a good series, some answers have been given but we still have some to be seen too. As I said earlier the reveal at the end, felt a little underwhelming to me. However, it makes total sense for the storyline. I love the Batgirls and hope to have an explosive issue next time.

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Batgirls #11 is a light, fluffy, non-serious, non-urgent murder investigation that puts the cauldron one step closer to catching the Hill Ripper. This issue is the closest yet to a Scholastic Scooby-Doo mystery with friends being friends and kiddish hi-jinks at the zoo. Not a recommendation unless you like something to read while you drink your juice box during recess.

    Though inconsistent art mars this issue a little, it still provides many great character moments, a great pair of guest stars from Gotham Academy, and a surprise appearance by a name-brand villain for an enjoyable chapter!

    There are elements of this issue that work really well for me, like the building of the Batgirls’ characters and relationships outside of their vigilante lives, and elements that didn’t quite hit the mark like the way the mystery is resolving. Generally though the issue is quite a bit of fun especially with the inclusion of Maps and her brother into the mix. Even with it’s faults, this is an enjoyable entry in the Batgirls series.

    If this was a comic for a specific middle school audience that enjoys the very colorful animation style of cartoons, then I would say that this comic hit the mark. But if it was meant for a broader audience, then I would probably skip this story if you are looking for a Batgirls story about Barbara Gordon, Stephanie Brown, and Cassandra Cain.

    Batgirls takes a major step back in terms of artwork this issue. While previous issues of the series were both penciled and inked Neil Googe, this issue turned to a pair of inkers to handle both inking and in some case finishes. As a result, the art is kindly… well, it’s a mess. While I’ve enjoyed Googe’s rather unique take on the Batgirls, this issue is just amateurish at best. Just really disappointing all around and makes the comic almost unreadable.
