Review: Batgirl #26
"Art Of The Crime" - Part One
Writer: Mairghread Scott
Artists: Paul Pelletier & Norm Rapmund
Review by Philip Clark Jumping straight into the action this issue, as it follows on from the events in one of the three stories from the anniversary issue. Batgirl is chasing a criminal through the streets of Burnside, thrusting us right into the thick of it. There’s even some exposition for those that might not have read the last issue, how considerate!
An excellent start to what I hope to is a fantastic series of issues. It certainly has the potential to be an absolute stellar of a run. The villain is dangerous, Batgirl is going up against someone who seems to have her beat at every turn so far.
New Batgirl writer Mairghread Scott has done a brilliant job laying down the foundations to a great story. The artwork in this issue is beautiful too, really adding to the overall feel of the comic. This is hardly surprising as Paul Pelletier and Norm Rapmund are two well respected comics veterans.
There wasn’t really all that much to go on in this issue. That being said, it was a fantastic read, something I find myself saying constantly about Batgirl these days.

"Harleen" - Book Two
Writer/Artist: Stjepan Šejiċ
Letterer: Gabriela Downie
It Starts With Fantasies…Review by Kendra Hale Harleen #2 is here, and I was so hungry for it. In the first issue, we got to see a new take on just how Dr. Quinzel began her journey to becoming Harley Quinn. From her theory on what makes people become criminals, to seeing a more personal side to Harleen, that hasn’t really been shown before. It was an exquisite dive into new waters and a deeper look into just how a woman, who is so intelligent, was taken in by the master of manipulation and mind games. Harleen #2 is ripe with the promise of digging even deeper, and explosive with story flow.
The More Sane Place To BeThe book comes out the gate running with an exquisite start. Joker greets us, by narrating and setting the tone for what’ to come in this issue. We watch the scene unfold as the Harley Quinn we’ve all come to know, steps to the plate swinging for the fences. I want to take a second just to…
