Batgirl #28 (DC)


Rating: 4/5 – Not another Teen Vampire story.
by ComicSpectrum reviewer Gilad Levin.

Batgirl #28 is the start to a very intriguing story  by Gail Simone that is well-written, well-paced and  kept me interested throughout the issue. There are a few different elements and storylines that align at the right moments and work good together. The villain  in the book is pretty decent, he’s no Joker , but he does have quite  decent and justified grievances. On some level, I found myself agreeing with him and thus found him quit relatable. His actions might not be the smartest, but that is only a minor character flaw. I have to say, the cover was quite misleading. I thought this was going to be another teen vampire story, but the actual villain is nothing like that.

The artwork by Fernando Pasarin and Jonathan Glapion captures the fun yet youthful essence of Batgirl. The way the art shifts between the Batgirl and Silver scenes are smooth and have a very distinct feel for each character and the situations they are facing.

Batgirl #28 is a good start for a new story arc. It sets up an interesting story and villain and kept me  interested from start to finish. I had a few “Huh?” moments where some things  didn’t make much sense to me at first, but Batgirl #28 was still an entertaining read.
