Batgirl Vol. 3: Death of the Family (The New 52)
Batgirl Vol. 3: Death of the Family (The New 52) - Gail Simone it was setting up to be an interesting story when Gail Simone got yanked as the writer, and the following writers brought it down terribly, then she returned on the last issue of this volume and rescued it but it's a terrible shame. Could've been a great, strong volume like the previous 2 but definitely got bogged down by the change of writer.

Batgirl Vol. 1: The Batgirl of Burnside (The New 52)
Batgirl Vol. 1: The Batgirl of Burnside (The New 52) - Babs Tarr,Cameron Stewart

Before I started reading this comic, I was a bit hesitant because this title seems to be a love it or hate it type series judging by the reviews. So I decided to take my chances and dove right into the book.

I ended up enjoying this book much more than I expected. The things I like about this book are the colorful and dynamic artwork, some of the characters were likable, and the balance between serious and fun.

The only part that I don't like is the overuse of slang words. It made me cringe because I don't use that much slang in real life (I'm in the same age group as Barbara).

Batgirl Vol. 3: Point Blank - Kelley Puckett,Various

a lot of fun, and I love watching this Batgirl mop up the floor with all opponents--but it's a bit choppy; these graphic novels that collect comics from mainly one series, always include material that ties in a bit confusingly with sagas from other series, in this case, Batman's troubles in the Bruce Wayne: Murderer story arc.

Cassandra is my Batgirl of choice these days. I think I will read this just before the Skelton book, and my upcoming Nonfiction pick.

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.
