Batgirl #36

Following the change in creative team after otaku take their cosplay to a villainous level, Batgirl has to track them down. The new villains give Barbara some trouble, but it's the reason behind their attacks that suggests something much more sinister is happening in Burnside.

This issue has an authentic grad school feeling. Barbara and her new friends are probably reading PHD Comics and xkcd when their code is compiling. I've had a hard time getting into the DC comics universe, despite have a deep and abiding love for the Batman. Batgirl has been an easy starting point, with the new creative team taking the book in a new direction and, so far, a suite of new villains that makes Barbara's series accessible. Of course, if you're already steeped in Bat-lore and up on your Birds of Prey, Batgirl will be just as fun, and you'll catch the subtle (and unsubtle) references. In either case, it's nice to read a Bat story that's confident enough to take the action out of the grim alleyways and darkest of dark nights. Batgirl is quickly building a cast of great new characters that I want to get to know, alongside awesome fight scenes and a compelling mystery. Even if you missed issue #35, you can jump on here and follow the action.

Favorite Moment: "You are my favorite person in the entire world. Never leave me."
