[MILD SPOILERS for Batgirl #41 and current Batbooks below!]
I could barely contain my excitement for this new issue of Batgirl! As most of you know, there's a new Batman in town, and now it's time to see how that affects our lovely Babs. From DC Comics, written by Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart, with art by Babs Tarr, Batgirl #41 is a powerful issue that will tug at your heartstrings. Between Barbara having a heart to heart with her father, and her new partner in crime Frankie there is a lot to experience.
I think it's important for me to reveal that I'm incredibly behind on the current run of Batman, so I heard about the news of a new Bat through the grapevine. This contributed to the amount of excitement I was feeling when I learned that it was Jim Gordon. I knew that this would affect Batgirl, and I was looking forward to seeing how it would play out. I'm pleased with the addition of a new villain, and look forward to seeing how that develops. But the real intensity of it all comes from Batgirl's interactions with the new Batman.
Fletcher and Stewart write a thorough, heartfelt script, as we see Jim and Barbara bond over a past-shared joy. Tarr's art style continues to have a light and bright spirit about it, but she also illustrates some pretty badass mysterious scenes throughout the issue. Without giving too many spoilers away, I'll just say that there are a lot of exciting moments to look forward to in Batgirl #41. Despite the emotion of it all, one-thing remains true…Batgirl is a tough, smart, impressive hero that will always be determined to do what's right.
