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.

Review by Steve J. Ray
This show is barking mad... and I love it. We left last week's episode on a cliffhanger, with the Decreator - a huge disembodied eyeball - high in the sky, disintegrating everything that met its gaze. Had our band of misfits failed, was Cloverton and the world doomed? Again? It's Snow JokeWith Jane and Cliff stranded in a magical realm inside a snow-globe (yes, you read that right) Larry, Cyborg, Rita and Kipling (guest star, Mark Sheppard) are left in a world that is slowly being, well... de-created.
Arch villain Mr. Nobody still has the Chief in his clutches, but how can his plans for world domination succeed, if there's no world left to dominate? Can this evil, bonkers, jigsaw-puzzle of a man put his …

"The Long Night" was arguably the most impressive episode in the history of T.V. I don't know what the budget or production time was for this episode, but it delivered a theatrical quality finish that has completely blown my mind.
There have been many movies over the years that failed to deliver close to the action or suspense we have just been witness to. Game of Thrones has grown into one of the biggest most popular franchises in the world, but let's not forget this is still a T.V. show. This is entertainment. The Night King and his Army of the undead where at the gates of Winterfell by the end of last weeks episode "A Knight of Seven Kingdoms." With this knowledge it's not a spoiler to assume this episode was going to be all out war. What I wasn't expecting was how much of the battle we were going to see, and from so many different points …
