Batgirl: Endgame #1 Is An Expressive Work Of Art

IMG_9310I'll admit it right off the bat…I haven't had a chance to read any of the Endgame books at all. I picked up Batgirl: Endgame #1, because I love the character so much and wanted to see what it's all about. From DC Comics, written by Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher, with art and colors by Bengal, Batgirl: Endgame #1 is perfect. I don't use that word very often, but the simplicity of the way this comic is done hits home for me. The story is entitled, "The Battle for the Burnside Bridge," and it is told silently. There's no script, no dialogue, but the story is very powerful and clear. A powerful series of events take place that give off a sense of urgency, suspense, determination, and bravery. Accompanied by Bengal's stunning artwork, the intensity is enhanced to a deep expressive level.

IMG_9308I could honestly stare at the panel above for days. It's beautiful. Watching Batgirl crash through windows, fly through the air, and rush people to safety comes across in such an intense way with no dialogue. It allows your imagination to take over and create all of the words and sounds of the chaotic environment yourself. There is a particularly endearing scene where Batgirl sees a young girl that's a fair distance away from her crying. She's lost among the turmoil, and reasonably frightened. Through the magic of technology, Batgirl attempts to cheer her up before reaching her physically. The whole thing ends on a heartwarming note. Overall, it left me in awe. The simple beauty among chaos is incredible. Don't miss out, pick up Batgirl: Endgame #1, to experience it for yourself.
