While in the Batgirl solo title, Barbara Gordon is on a road trip.
Having just (barely!) survived the Battle of Burnside and verging on an Arkham-worthy breakdown, the star pulls a Kerouac and gets on the road to find herself.
"She needs to get away from it all to center herself again," Editor Mark Doyle says. "Along the way, she will meet some all-new heroes—and villains. And learn some new skills she'll be bringing back to her Burnside neighborhood of Gotham City."
Planning Babs' itinerary? Writer Hope Larson and artist Rafael Albuquerque—a pair of Eisner Award winners. It's a match that makes for an intriguing mix of indie storytelling sensibility and explosive visuals, one that should combine for some extremely postcard-worthy moments for Babs.
"The 'Burnside' take generated a lot of buzz, and we're taking that tone and vibe and running with it, but spinning it out into new adventures," Doyle says, the first of which is set in Japan. "Batgirl will be Babs on solo adventures, continuing that vibe of a young, twenty-something superhero, carving out her own little corner in the coolest, scariest city in the world."
