Batgirl #1 Review

Written by Adam Beechen

I swear, DC just wants to troll its fanbase with books like this. Did they not get the memo about people not liking Adam Beechan nor his take on Batgirl the first time around? Suffice to say, this was not a good start to the "redemption" of Batgirl's character.

DC just wants to troll its fanbase with books like this.  
This issues only purpose was to summarize what's happened to Batgirl over the past couple of years - mainly Beechan and DC crapping all over the character. The only bits of new story consist of Batgirl telling us she wants to hunt down and kill her father, Cain, and Deathstroke for everything they've done to her.

The rest of the issue consists of Nightwing acting like a complete tool and starting a cliched super-hero fight with Batgirl before having it broken up by Batman and Robin. After that, we get page after page consisting of walls of text explaining Batgirl's backstory.

Verdict - Avoid It. I don't think anyone wants to be reminded of how badly this character has been treated recently. They should have spent the issue developing that little thing called the plot instead of wasting so many pages with recaps and pointless fight scenes that go nowhere.
