Ridley, Braga, and the Next Batman team have sold me on this version of the character. I’ll definitely be checking out Second Son.
The second half of the Batgirls back-up expands quite nicely. We go beyond just Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain, and a larger picture begins to form with the rest of the Bat-family. I was pleasantly surprised.
The main thing I took away from the Gotham City Sirens back-up was slighty bewilderment, as they didn’t find a way to shoehorn Harley Quinn into it. The original trio was Harley, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman. What gives?
