Okay introduction to Batgirl
Batman: Arkham Knight - Batgirl Begins (2015) #1 (Batman Arkham Knight: Batgirl Begins (2015)) - Tim Seeley,Matthew Clark

I think this is for the video game, and so it's not the usual origin story, or not exactly what I'm used to anyway.   Still, it's fairly solid, despite the whole 'knowledge could get a young girl into trouble,' aspect.   

 

And yeah, being Batgirl could get her into trouble, but it could get a younger Bruce Wayne into trouble.   So if it's okay for him, why isn't it for her?   

 

Which is why I definitely think this could have been much better.

The right book for today's crazy times
The Forever Letter: Writing What We Believe For Those We Love - Elana Zaiman

I've been so frustrated and feeling powerless with the last election and the state of our country.  I want to do something to bring people together and move forward to solve real problems.  I'm tired of all the blame.  

 

Elana Zaiman's book THE FOREVER LETTER offers a ray of hope with simple steps that I can take to make sure that I don't lose the people in my life who are truly important, no matter their political perspective.

Loving this series again!
Suicide Squad (2016-) #24 - Rob Williams,Eddy Barrows,Eber Ferreira,Adriano Lucas,Agustin Padilla

This is one that has highs and lows for me: I thought it had to go somewhere more quickly at one point, but when it's at it's paranoiac best, it really just works.   It gets super creepy, all the while explaining why Waller is acting so out of character, furthering Katana's character, and pulling the Suicide Squad together as a team again. 

 

Yay!

 

Also, some epic Batman fighting Killer Croc here.

Post series one-shot
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #6 - Matthew K. Manning,Jon Sommariva

And it's a lot of fun, especially as Robin has changed: it's a new Robin to the Turtles, and they can't seem to get over that fact!   I laughed out loud a couple times, but overall, this is the same as the rest of the series: the art isn't good enough to warren the last of the five stars, and it's fun, but not a favorite of mine.  

 

It was nice catching up with the Gotham crew later and seeing how they evolved, and how the newbie reacted to the giant turtle-men.   So I'd give it a reread, but probably not in the next couple of years.

End to this mini-series
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #5 - Matthew Manning,Jon Sommariva

Issue six is an epilogue: it takes place after, it takes place in Gotham rather than the in the Turtles' universe, and it takes place a good deal while after from what I can tell.   Still, this issue, five, ends up wrapping up the portal storyline with a twist.  

 

It's fun, it used a character I didn't expect to be the brains behind this operation, and I liked it enough to reread in the future even if it's not a complete favorite mini-series, or crossover.
