Fangirls I’ve been behind on Just about everything recently, but I’m working to turn that around. It’s definitely tough to get back on track, but I’m getting there. Issue 47 of Batgirl is a bit of a doozy, so let’s hop right to it.
Fangirls, I’ve been putting this issue off. I’ve been worried about Harley going anywhere near the Joker, and I knew that would be a big part of this issue (he was in the last issue and he’s on the cover of this one). I didn’t even feel up to the challenge today, but I finally got off my bum and read it. And it was far more satisfying than I expected.
Fangirls, this businenessy Catwoman is still throwing me off. I love that she’s in control and kicking ass, but it’s still bizarre to me that she runs a crime syndicate, and barely steals stuff anymore. But in the last issue, Eiko Hassigawa let Sionis think that she was the Catwoman he wanted, and got shot. Now both Catwomen need to talk, and they’ve got a big, green mediator.
Forty-two is the answer, right? To life, the universe, and everything? Sadly, this issue didn’t really answer anything, it just brought up more questions. And though I’m getting frustrated with Selina Falcone, I’m glad she’s getting back into her catsuit more often.
Fangirls, as soon as I saw the cover of Batgirl 40, I knew my predictions had come true. I had a feeling that Barbara Gordon’s algorithm had become corrupted and started blabbing her secrets to everyone; contacting her boyfriend and telling him things, getting the world against Barbara. But I didn’t realize how far back it went.
Catwoman is all business, and as much as I love her look, I’m not a big business-y person. I’m not saying that I dislike it, but I’m almost thinking I prefer her as a thief stealing diamonds and cat relics.
Fangirls, this new team on Catwoman is giving her a powerful and gritty look, and I love it. She’s found out that she’s a daughter of one of Gotham’s more prominent mob families, and has taken over the family business. But she’s given up being the Cat. Now she’s Selina, and doing some pretty powerful things.
