    The end of Bat Girl Summer makes for blockbuster reading. Another hugely successful arc ends with a satisfying showdown between the Batgirls and The Riddler. The duo of compelling reading and stunning artwork continue to make Batgirls one of DC’s finest books of 2022.

    This book has really emphasized their friendship in a nice waybut let’s be honest, it feels like a lot more than friendship at times and I would love to see DC actually take the leap and confirm that in the coming year. One way or another, it’s great to see these girls getting the spotlight they deserve again.

    ‘Batgirls’ might have reached the end of Bat Girl Summer, but the fall and beyond for these characters is just as bright and awesome. There is a great energy and style to this book that makes sure it never loses a step and is fun but serious at the same time month after month, a clear love on the page from everyone involved.

    This would have been a great ending to the series, but I’m glad we don’t have to stop here. I can tell there’s so much more we can do with these characters in this series. The arc came to a satisfying conclusion and already set up something intriguing for the forthcoming annual, which I cannot wait for!

    The Batman Universe

    Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad bring their third arc to a close, handily launching their fourth as well as bringing several strong moments of character development to the cast. Neil Googe finishes his fourth issue with strong, sketchy linework, really highlighting the strengths of each character and their cartoony, action appeal.

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Batgirls #12 brings the hunt for the Hill Ripper to an end with a respectable amount of dramatic tension, plenty of action, and a decent conclusion to the killing spree. That said, the dialog in the first half is terrible, the tone is wildly inconsistent compared to the previous issue, and the art, especially the coloring, is odd.

    Batgirls ends the way it began, with more vibes than a tight story. This has been a good spotlight for the trio of underutilized heroines, even if it felt at times like the book was spinning its wheels while showcasing the character’s personality. The last few issues didn’t make much sense (with the inclusion of the Riddler and a tease of the Cluemaster mostly going nowhere) but at least the comic was fun. And that counts for something… right?

    This issue, while probably not my favorite in the run, is really solid. It’s a fun romp that I think most fans of these characters will enjoy.
