While Batgirl was originally introduced in the 60s, this retelling is very modern. Barbara Gordon is an independent lady, zestfully pursuing her own career and goals, not even seeking to mimic that Batman.

I have to agree with Ian on this title, it would seem a 4 out of 5 but always is 5 out of 5 when you actually read it. I too love all the subtle references, especially the less subtle one to the scene from The Killing Joke, which is worked well so that it doesn't come across as forced.

yeah, that was the one I was thinking of specifically when writing about the references. It's so well done. Obvious to old readers, but probably works perfectly to new readers also.

I loved this book, and wish I my copy hadn't been destroyed as I can't seem to find it anywhere. But anyway, yes the best Batgirl will always have red hair.

Yeah, it's a pain. Still, kind of worth dropping 20 on this one, since that's the cover price of many much less enjoyable comics.

I would gladly pay the 20 if I could find it. But at least around here its been out of print so far, I only see used copies of 50+. I could probably track down the 9 single issues for less.

There's a couple copies on amazon for 20 right now. Half and ebay seem to be more expensive.

I think I paid something like 16 for mine, but it's got library stickers on it.

That could work. I had spent checking a few months ago after not finding anything reasonable. Thanks.

I honestly thought it was cheaper when I wrote this review, but it looks like I may have sold a couple copies, haha

I think this book should be like Batman Year One. Pretty much always in print.

Started the book late last night and just finished this morning…couldn't put it down except to grab a few hours of sleep :)
VERY enjoyable. I love the fun lighthearted feel of this entire book. It never swayed from the mood of the series the entire time.
I can't express how much I love the colors. They're amazing. I would love to get a print of one of the panels just for the amazing colors. The book says Javier Rodriguez did the coloring, but you also listed Heroic Age. I'm interested in tracking down some books done by this same crew, should I look up Javier, Heroic Age, or both? I never thought I'd read this book because of the price of a used copy, but luckily I got it in my recent lot purchase for $2.50! After reading it though I would have easily paid the asking used price to add it to my collection. Great trade!

I'm not really that familiar with either, so I couldn't tell you for sure. Coloring often seems very different by creative direction. In any case, if you find out more I hope you share what you learned!

I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, but when I googled "Javier Rodriguez Artist" on google…I got an incredibly huge number of results that were very much not tied to each other.  It's not the most uncommon name Laughing

 

I was able to find him however on ComicVine and it looks like he mostly does Marvel Issues with a couple DC thrown in.  I didn't know that he did a few issue from Green Arrow Year One, I'll have to go back to my trade and see if I can recognize a difference in issues within the collection.  I'll definitely keep an eye out for his name though.
