Barbara Gordon is no stranger to dusting herself off when disaster strikes… so when a fire destroys everything she owned, she spots the opportunity for a new lease on life — and seizes it! Following the rest of Gotham’s young adults to the hip border district of Burnside, Barbara sets about building an all-new Batgirl… and discovers all-new threats preying on her peers! It’s a re-invention of Batgirl from the boots up, by the incredible creative team of Cameron Stewart (BATMAN INC.), Brenden Fletcher (WEDNESDAY COMICS), and rising star artist Babs Tarr!
The redesigned costume looks nice and all but there are still people who would actually like the old costume. Personally, I’d go for this new one. This is one of the books that’ll be worth picking up when it comes out. Oh and there’s also the fact that they’ll be crafting ‘lighter’ stories for the book.
Now if only they can promise that this will still tie-in nicely when the Batman books end the current Zero Year storyline.
