    But Why Tho?

    From its delightful personality, its excellently crafted action, and its meaningful, heartfelt goodbye, Batgirls #19 delivers everything fans of the series could ask for. A perfect ending for a fantastic series. Once a Batgirl, always a Batgirl.

    Get out a few tissues for the tears you’ll have to wipe away as they roll over your smile as we say good by to Batgirls. Batgirls #19 goes out with an inspiring and thoughtful message coupled with some great action, excellent art and beautiful colors. Perhaps, one day we’ll meet again, this could be just the beginning.

    I’m not sure how I’ll get through the months without my girls. I’m so sad this series is coming to a close, but I wouldn’t change my time with them for anything. The amazing writing and all of the artists we’ve had, have added so much to these characters and story.

    This will be a series I will keep coming back to, as there are such wonderful feel good moments mixed in with the awesome butt-kicking battle sequences. Batgirls #19 has left us with an amazing ending to a great series. I would like to thank everyone who worked on this and made it such a pleasure to read and review.

    The final issue of Batgirls ties up all the loose ends neatly. A poignant and reflective ending serves as a perfect reminder of why these characters belong together and why this creative team were the ones to tell their story.

    Ideally, a series that’s been as good as Batgirls doesn’t have to end. If it DOES have to end, though, it really SHOULD end with an issue like Batgirls #19. The final chapter in the series pays homage to the characters and their struggles while providing a satisfying conclusion to central conflicts and holding open the possibility of more at some point in the future. It’s all quite meticulously placed on the page while embracing everything that makes the Batgirls such a fun trio to hang out with every month.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: The end of the road. Batgirls concludes with a series finale that is both satisfying and skillfully executed. The heart of this series has always been the relationships between the Batgirls and their circle. I found that this episode not only found a way to bring back characters from previous arcs but was able to convey how they had transformed since their first appearances. This chapter closed the loop for the series elegantly, but I have high hopes their story will continue somewhere in another format.

    The Art: This well-designed issue features traditional artwork in a realistic styling. The illustrations are appealing, and the attention to detail within the work provides readers with a sequence of emotionally engaging and transportive visuals.

    All things must end, and ‘Batgirls’ goes out the way it always lived: wearing its proverbial heart on its sleeve at all times. A powerfully deep and emotional series that never skimped on the fun, wrapped up in a colorful stylized beautiful package month after month. These are the types of series that we need far more of from comic book publishers.

    This is the first of two runs by Cloonan and Conrad that are wrapping up this week, and this one feels like it’s well before its time. Batgirls has been largely well-received and has gotten good marks for being a rare spotlight for the two fan-favorite Batgirls, as well as letting Barbara Gordon shine as Oracle. This final arc has put the Batgirls in the crosshairs as a brutal sniper targets Gotham and demands the surrender of the Batgirls. While many in the law enforcement apparatus wanted them in custody, the people of Gotham rallied behind the Batgirls for a publish show of support—one that was targeted by the sniper. The reveal that the main villain is Gunbunny, the former partner of Gunhawk, was spoiled already, but it’s interesting to see a character who was a derided sidekick manage to cause a lot of chaos on her own. And with Gotham under fire, the Batgirls are forced to split up.

    AIPT

    It’s rare to see a Big Two superhero comic book so dedicated to exploring the bonds between female characters, especially young female characters, and especially in a book like Batgirls, which is so clearly targeted towards teen girls. I would have loved to see all three of these Bats get their moment in Batgirls #19, but what I really mean is that I want another 19 issues of them kicking ass and kicking back. This farewell may have been lacking in its Cass and Babs time, but, like every issue of Batgirls, it doesn’t lack in heart. “Once a Batgirl, always a Batgirl.” May that always be true, and may we see these three again, and soon.

    Major Spoilers

    Batgirls #19 could have handled the subject of guns with some more finesse, but this doesn’t stop the issue from being a satisfying way to end the series. Rather than making something uncharacteristically bombastic and grandiose, this issue keeps things grounded, which is in keeping with the series’ tone.

    The Batman Universe

    Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad bring their 19 issue run on Batgirls to a close in their trademark melancholic but humorous style, highlighting the bond between the three Batgirls as well as their skills in saving others, both fighting and in how they connect to those around them.

    Batgirls wraps up with a few literal bangs, as Cass and Stephanie use a parade to track down a pair of snipers. The series used it final arc to wrap up one lingering plot point from its frantic opening arc, although it wasn’t exactly one that the creative team really hinted at in recent issues. All in all, Batgirls was a fun character-focused series that highlighted the strength of Cass and Steph’s relationship, while showing how each character is complimented by the other. Honestly, this is the kind of Batgirls series that fans have wanted for a while and I think it delivered in spades.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Batgirls #19 ends the arc, the creative team’s tenure, and the title with a final confrontation to stop a mad sniper from terrorizing the city. The resolution is serviceable, the killer’s mysterious identity was telegraphed early on (although, the identity has a twist), and the art is passable with terrible colors.

    As the finale to Batgirls this issue does a good job wrapping up the final plot and referencing back to the beginning of the story, both in its characters and in how the Batgirls have developed over the course of the run. While the run has had its share of problems I am happy that the Batgirls got the chance to adventure together, and I hope that they get the chance again in the future.
