review 1: I like the graphics, I love female warriors, but two pet peeves I had with this series is hard to pronounce names and cheekiness. Ordinarily I do not mind cheeky but not this particular form. The other pet peeve of hard to pronounce names just means that my rather rigid head cann...

review 1: I'm really enjoying this series. I haven't been able to find as many DC titles that I enjoy, but Batgirl has kept me from giving up on DC. I think Volume 2 was better than Volume 1 - it was a bit more cohesive, and I also thought Knightfall was a super interesting villain. I like...

review 1: I'd read multiple reviews saying this series was great, and that everyone should give it a read, and after doing so I have to say that I definitely agree, to a point. Although this is Volume 1, and was the beginning of a new series it definitely takes a little patience to get use...

review 1: As far as the 'New 52!' series is concerned, Batgirl, the story arc featuring Barbara Gordon coming back with the freedom of her legs and revenge in her heart, contains some of the most breathtaking artwork. This volume, that inexorably leads our protagonist to the biggest villai...

review 1: Gail Simone and John Ostrander here both do amazing jobs taking villains (mostly less-famous, obscure, even laughed-at ones) and making them both menacing and sympathetic, with dialog that sparkles and storyline that both tug at the drama and chill the blood. This installment foc...

review 1: Bullet Review:Gail Simone is just simply awesome; I had heard she did a run on Wonder Woman, my goddess, so I definitely thought that would be a killer combination. One of my favorite comic book authors + my favorite superheroine?!While I LOVE how Simone deftly writes Wonder Woma...

review 1: No. I've read a lot of Gail Simone, and I can't believe this received and average of 4+ stars. It was boring, the characters weren't at all gripping, and a "get-out-of-hell free card?" Ugh. Who cares about anything that happens to anyone in this story arc. No one is compelli...

review 1: I thoroughly enjoyed the first six issues collected here, but the denouement leaves much to be desired. I would not be at all surprised to learn that Simone was suddenly informed she had to wrap up six issues of story in a single issue and then set up about rapidly patching up b...

review 1: In "A Murder of Crows", Wonder Woman deals with the children of Ares with the help of Power Girl. I've always liked the way Gail Simone lets Diana interact with other meta-humans and this time is no exception. Power Girl adds spice to the story and is a nice contrast to Wonder Wo...

review 1: I am basically reviewing issues 19-34, plus Batgirl Annual #2 and Batgirl; Future's End #1. Since I subscribe I read by issue, I don't want until the trade comes out, although that seemed to work out here for Volume 4!I was really starting to get into this storyline. All the st...

review 1: Every bit as enjoyable as the first volume, with the added benefit of a more interesting story. The headline story, Depths, is probably helped by at least a passing understanding of Amazons. Lucky me, I have that understanding. But even without that, watching each character have ...

review 1: The first two issues of this book are another stupid editorially-mandated crossover. Not a fan at all. The arc in hell is pretty damn fucked up and therefore amazing, especially what each of the team members' hell would be. Bane's plot in the last two issues seems sort of abrupt ...

review 1: Questo volume l’avevo preso a settembre di due anni fa, finanziandolo tramite Kickstarter.Di cosa si tratta? E’ un fumetto supereroistico horror scritto da Gail Simone e disegnato da Jim Calafiore, autoprodotto dai due.Dopo una lunghissima gestazione è finalmente poi stato prodot...

review 1: AKA DC meets the 99%... This is an issues book, with a group of young, new powers basically deciding the police are corrupt and deciding to exist without them. It's... topical? But ultimately I wasn't fond of the basic concept, and the book seemed more chaotic than interesting....
