I'm loving Batgirl. It is the only comic I am currently collecting right now issue by issue. I really like how it is playing out. Among other things, the comic is actually fun and somewhat light in comparison to the other Bat-books.
To be fair, that's true. For what the book is, it works.
I'm having a difficult time wrapping my mind around the idea that Steph is old enough to be in college. It's only two or three months ago, DCU time, that she and Tim were still in high school, and Tim's only about sixteen.
It's not inconceivable that Steph is college aged. I'm just having a hard time buying that.
Again, I have a specific vision of Steph, and Batgirl
isn't it. So long as the book entertains me, I'm in. I do like the character, and I have since way
back when. It's nice to see her getting some respect.
To be fair, I didn't make that comment about Batgirl, Torg
did. I think the quote button sometimes goofs up - I've had occasions where text is mysteriously absent when I click the quote button to reply.
I myself haven't read recent Batgirl as yet - I have read some of the early issues of Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) and quite liked the character. I am told that bad things happened after. I was surprised that I warmed up to Cassandra Cain. I can be a little bit of a purist - when I came to know about somebody other than Babs Gordon being in the Batfamily (I have very rarely read about Kathy Kane), I was opposed to it on principle. Dick as Batman doesn't really qualify tho' - If anybody has the right, he does.
Similarly I never quite liked reading about Conner Kent (the new Superboy) - and also hated Superboy being limited to the evil earth-prime version. Oh well...
