Review: Batgirl #24
Writer: Shawn Aldridge
Artist: Scott Godlewski
Review by Philip Clark All life boils down to are the choices we make. Bad or good, everyone makes choices. Sometimes those decisions aren’t made in the right state of mind. There are times where we make what we think to be the right choice, but end up being the complete opposite.
Writer, Shawn Aldridge produces a gripping issue of Batgirl this week. Writing a story that is, as usual with Batgirl, thought provoking and emotional. Barbara is, quite simply put, an absolute gem of a character. She shines brightly in her own title, especially in this issue.
Too many choices
I simply love how Barbara can go from being the snarky, confident Batgirl to the warm and sensitive Barbara Gordon. The character of Barbara Gordon is a complex one and is written as such. She beats down on the criminals that deserve it. Then gives a heart to heart to those who need it. She’s a friend, a daughter, a genius and a crime fighter all in one.
Aldridge manages to capture all of these sides to Barbara’s personality in one spectacular issue.
This was a great read, and incredibly pretty to look at. Aldridge and Godlewski have done a fantastic job at bring Batgirl to life on the page. Aldridge manages to portray a heart-felt, bad ass Batgirl that really manages to empathise with the villain. Everything about this issue is great.
I would quite happily read a continuation of this story arc. I’d love for Aldridge to have a lengthy run on Batgirl.

SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti

Writer: Jeph Loeb Artist: Tim Sale Review by Eric Lee Welcome to our year long retrospective of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's seminal classic Batman story: The Long Halloween. Each retrospective will be released on a monthly basis. We will provide literary analysis and insight on one of the best Batman stories ever. Is The Long Halloween as good as its reputation? Read on to find out! Batman and 'The Godfather' The story starts off with the writer Jeph Loeb homaging the opening to The Godfather. Just like Don Corleone, Bruce Wayne boldly proclaims: "I believe in Gotham City." Bruce Wayne's character arc summed up in one sentence. The sentence is simple, but an important statement that defines Batman's character arc for the whole series. He has just completed his first year as Batman and his promise to rid Gotham of crime may be in his grasp. Bruce is uncharacteristically optimistic in not only his own abilities, but the power of the city
