    • Ouch. That was awkward.I was crazy excited to read this, and Barbara Gordon is one of my favorite DC characters, so to say I'm massively disappointed right now would be an understatement. What. A. Letdown.I'm not sure what Fletcher was going for here, but it felt like it was for children. Except not.It's got too many adult situations in it to be a comic for kids. In the first issue alone, Babs gets drunk, can't remember that she was all over some guy the night before, and pukes some hangover jui [...]

    • (Received from Netgalley for review.)I don't get it. I really don't get this book at all. I don't get why this just seems like the dumbed down version of Batgirl. The tone and the villains kind of feel like a kids' comic, but the actual content isn't entirely kid appropriate. Which makes the whole book feel kind of weird, almost like they were reaching for all ages and totally missed. And since I don't think that was the intention, it just feels weird.Part of that vaguely "all ages" feel is beca [...]

      From what I can see, there are a lot of people (at least on the first page of reviews) that have read this book and not enjoyed it. I'm definitely not one of those people. Yes, this book is a huge departure from what's gone before, but it respects everything Barbara has been through and uses her continuity to tell its own story, and it's a massively different book to any other Bat-Book on the stands at the moment.As Barbara moves across the river to the Burnside district of Gotham (hence the tit [...]

    • "Speaking of asses, dirtbag, yours is about to be totally kicked."I was not feeling this one too much.Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) has just moved to Burnside. Other notable characters: Dinah (Black Canary) and Frankie (Batgirl's roomie).This is very technology focused. First, Batgirl must deal with a scumbag who has *checks notes* "cybernetic flash memory implants" or some shit. Anyway, he gets his jollies off on stealing people's personal information which is embarrassing and posting it online. For [...]

    • *Deep sigh* When I first heard about and saw the image of the "New" batgirl, I knew that I probably wouldn't like it. I read the first issue, and it angered me. Now reading this just confirms my initial response. The current run of Batgirl up to this point, Gail Simone had done a great job of building up Barbara Gordon. I feel with this reboot, Yes it's a reboot. I don't care what the creative team says. Which they proudly and loudly proclaimed it wasn't a reboot. They turned Batgirl into this H [...]

    • If I were playing a game of word association and someone said 'Batgirl' or 'Barbara Gordon', i'd say 'intelligent', 'capable' and 'headstrong', while thinking of one of the strongest female characters in comic history. If someone were to say 'Burnside Girl' (which is how I refer to this run), i'd say 'whiny', 'insecure' and 'moronic'. I realise i'm not the target audience for this book, but DC taking a character who was relatable and inspirational to everyone and turning her into a childish hips [...]

    • Ugggghhhh.This is exactly what I've come to expect from DC. It would seem Gotham Academy, Vol. 1: Welcome to Gotham Academy was some sort of bizarre fluke, after all.So why do superheroes have to be rebooted? Because wouldn't it make more sense to just mirror the real world and bring in new heroes? Not the next in line for this or that great hero name, but actual new heroes whom no one had ever heard of before they showed up in these pages? That's just kind of how time works. I get that Batman a [...]

      Also available on the WondrousBooks blog.This is a love letter.I know that not all of you will understand my infatuation with this particular graphic novel among all the books, comic or otherwise, that I have read and reviewed. I'm pretty sure at least one of you will and that's enough for me.Looking back to two-three months ago, I'm pretty sure this is the first comic book issue I read in my adult life. That's reason enough to feel strongly about itEVER,the list of things I liked about Batgirl [...]

    • This is basically YA Batgirl with some of the worst tropes YA has to offer. Have you always wanted girls in comics to hate each other and fight for no reason? Well thanks, you're part of the problem then.I don't have any issue with tone changes, and how much I liked Gotham Academy is a testament to that. This was not the Batgirl I love though. (Also, wtf is up with Black Canary's character??) In regards to the tone, there are some really dark moments in this that are at odds with the overall fee [...]

    • I received this from DC Comics and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.Wow. Terrible. I'm not part of the target audience for this "new" Batgirl, obviously. This series went from a "grown-up" storyline to one focused on a much younger crowd, complete with drinking (and subsequent hangovers), no respect for authority, and a ton of teen and new adult angst. Nope, not for me. DNF @ 13%.

    • Lately, i haven't been giving star ratings to books that I didn't finish, but this was so spectacularly awful just after the first issue that I have to warn people away. I know there was a brouhaha when Barbara was brought back and given the use of her legs again, thus nullifying Oracle and taking away one of the great representations of a PWD in comics. However, Gail Simone did a bang-up job with Batgirl, straddling a fine line between her new zest for life and the inner turmoil of her family. [...]

      I really liked the art and that's the main reason this gets three stars -- in reality, it's more like two and a half stars. This was just so freaking hipster that it was unreal. Not in a good way either! Some artist guy pretending to be Batgirl to ruin her reputation, Barbara Gordon basically throwing tantrums when Dinah Lance (aka Black Canary) calls her out for her immature/inconsiderate behavior, and the storyline that centers around Barbara's thesis computer program overtaking an app that pe [...]

    • I went into this without ever having read any Batgirl comics but having recently read Ms. Marvell (after reading gr friends' praises.) I gave Ms. Marvell a 4 star rating, and that was mostly because I was excited to read an interesting variation on a female super hero. There was some nice diversity in there in terms of characters and predicaments. Ms. Marvel herself was complex and really struggling to figure out where she fits in with her Muslim family and the larger world of villains, heroes, [...]

      This is my first ever Batgirl comic book! I'm only really familiar with the character from other media, though. While I felt out of the loop at times, the story is still more or less self-contained. I have to admit that I wish she was still a librarian or at least in training, but I'm still intrigued with this version of the character. I'm not all that familiar with DC characters, but I'd also like to get to know Dinah Lance better. I may be continuing this run in the future.

    • Electronic ARC provided by NetGalley.There were a lot of things I really liked about this Batgirl reboot. First of all, Barbara's new costume is fantastic. I love the more utilitarian look of the outfit, emphasizing function over sex appeal. This is the kind of thing that I feel like a female superhero would actually wear. The art is dynamic and colorful, adding to the more youthful tone that the new creative team seems to be going for. When DC started their New 52 line the thing that bothered m [...]

    • I really loved the diversity of the characters.

    • Batgirl of Burnside provided the template for the post-Convergence DC Universe. How often does Batgirl get to do something like that?As part of the New 52 reboot, DC took the opportunity to put Barbara Gordon, the most famous Batgirl, back in the suit. That involved a controversial cure for Barbara’s paralysis and erasing her long-running role as Oracle, one of the few superheroes with a physical disability. The reboot also shaved about a decade off Barbara’s age, knocking her back to her ea [...]

      First off I want to give a huge thank you to DC for approving me, because that has never happened before and it basically made my geeky little heart explode. Secondly, this graphic novel was so much fun!Before I was huge into Marvel and same publishers DC was my main source of comic book goodness, that was pre-New 52 and I hung on for a while afterwards but the amount of comics I pick from DC have been few and far between since then. However everything I’ve read so far has been really great, a [...]

      So I think it's safe to say that reading this immediately after finishing up Gail Simone's run was a pretty big mistake. On one hand, "Batgirl of Burnside" features of a lot of interesting elements. I love the new costume design. The artwork is appealing. I really enjoy the format a of a bunch of one shots that lead into a larger storyline. I also don't mind the lighter tone, as a fault of Simone's run is that it could feel excessively grim. Yet, at the same time I found myself kind of wishing t [...]

    • I expected to like this but wow, I really hated it. What have they done to Barbara! Why is Batgirl now an annoying hipster? And the villains in this are laughable, they're so cartoony its almost childish and yet there is a weird imbalance with the more adult content about drinking, hangovers, sex and dating apps. I do not like the new bat suit, the doc martens and leather jacket combination is so try-hard hipster it upsets me. All the integration of social media - it's everywhere - into the art [...]

    • I've been reading A LOT of comic books lately, but haven't really been listing them here on . I do, however, have to make an exception for Batgirl of Burnside. It was freaking EXCELLENT. Let me start by saying that I was really hesitant about even giving the "new" Batgirl a chance. I was charmed by Gail Simone's Batgirl and, after seeing previews of the first few pages of issue #35 thought this reworked version was not for me. I wasn't super down with the artwork and I thought the social media r [...]

    • Muchísimo mejor que la saga anterior. Una visión actual y renovada de Batgirl con guiños a la cultura de las redes sociales y la informática. Seguramente sí seguiré con estos volúmenes.

    • So, I decided it was time for me to finally try some Batgirl and I honestly don’t know if I like it or not.What’s it about?Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) is now going to college for uhh I think it’s some technology thingy they didn’t focus too much on what she was studying. Anyways, a lot of crazy s*** happens involving her, Burnside (where she’s going to college) and modern technology!Pros:The second half or so of this book is pretty interesting.I LOVE THE ART SO MUCH! Tarr and Wicks do an [...]

      Batgirl of Burnside is aimed squarely at the "social media generation," and boy does it show. Every page features someone tweeting, texting, or checking matches on the trendy dating app. She even takes down a villain with a QR code.Unfortunately, Batgirl of Burnside fails on pretty much every level. The viewpoint feels forced and fake, with none of the natural integration into everyday life that matches how people actually use social media. The entire volume feels like a failed marketing ploy, o [...]

    • I was really jazzed by the concept of a reboot of a DC comic - even a well-regarded run by Gail Simone - into something pitched as fun, less serious, a little more grounded in real-girl problems. Fun art, a groovy costume redesign - how could this go wrong?Then I saw the flood of reviews from GoodReads friends, and without re-reading them today, I'm going on the gut memory that they found the book boring, not well-written, a little disjointed or misfired. Disappointing all in all. Bummer. So the [...]

    • Ahhh another Batgirl comic with the original Batgirl no less, and I've got to say this was a bit of a disappointment. The comic starts out with Barbra moving to a new apartment and college and what does she do? Gets drunk and almost sleeps with a guy yet doesn't remember any of it. Now this wouldn't usually bug me, hell I've lived through those awkward the day after moments we've all been young and stupid but this didn't feel like Barbra.Barbra has been though a lot from getting shot by the Joke [...]

      while reading this, I couldn't avoid finding something odd about it. I'm still not sure what it was but it kind of all became clear in the end. does that make sense? the art was absolutely on point in every single panel, mindblowingly perfect. Babs Tarr is my idolfull review here: catshelf.wordpress/2016/0

    • I received a copy of this book for free from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. Also posted on my blog, Rinn Reads.I’ve always been a big fan of superhero stories, but it was only in the past year or two that I started reading Marvel comic books properly, and now I feel quite well-versed in the various arcs and characters. But, until now, I hadn’t read a single DC comic. I saw this on Netgalley and thought the start of a brand new series would be a good place to start, plus Batgirl [...]

    • I've never read Batgirl before and I was very impressed with this. Awesome story and art. Draws you right in.
