Description: You didn’t actually think we’d keep you waiting this entire year without giving you the Batgirls series we’ve all been wanting for forever, right? No way, we love you too much – just like Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, who are only able to navigate the dark, gritty, and oftentimes scary city of Gotham by leaning on the bright light that is their best-friendship. Mentored by Oracle, the Batgirls move to the other side of town where Barbara Gordon can keep a better eye on them while the hacker Seer is still invading their lives. Steph may be too rash sometimes, and Cass doesn’t speak much – but what they lack in similarities they make up for with their mutual respect and love for each other…and what makes them stronger together as Batgirls! And they may be good at kicking ass, but they are just trying their best to be normal teenagers – who’ll borrow the keys to a muscle car that belonged to a bad guy and perhaps give it a joyride around town without a driver’s license, then race to get back home to Oracle by curfew… Splashing the pages with bright colors against a dark backdrop of Gotham, Batgirls is the pizza slumber party of the year you.

Pages: 32.

Price: $3.99 (Variant covers, $4.99).

Bondo! Bondo! Bondo! With their new secret muscle car and their new secret patrol route, Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown find moving to their new neighborhood-thanks to Oracle instructing them to “lay low”-that much easier to bear because they have each other. Steph begins witnessing some strange actions through the window of the building across the street and can’t help but investigate if the recent murders are connected to them! Meanwhile, Oracle realizes the most effective way for the girls to wear her newly upgraded comms is by piercing their ears, and Cass freaks out!

J’ai pris le premier épisode. Aussi graphiquement que scénaristiquement, c’est un peu fou-fou du poil, ça bavarde, on sourit, c’est dynamique, etc…

Vraiment pas mal dans l’esprit. J’ai toujours eu un cruch pour Spoiler mais je ne suivrais pas la série.

J’ai juste une remarque sur Oracle un peu trop Maman un peu loin de la Barbara Gordon actuelle. C’est juste pour tiquer car c’est bon de lire du fun dans le Batverse.

Et en même temps ça donne l’impression du retour de la Barbara que l’on connaissait avant les New 52. Merci de cette avis, tu m’as convaincu d’essayer ce titre !

Je trouve en fait que Tynion a réussi la bonne synthèse du personnage. J’ai aussi beaucoup aimé la Batgirl de Burnside version Cameron Stewart, je dois avouer. Mais mettre de côté Oracle, c’était dommage.

Plus généralement, je trouve que le passage de Tynion sur le Batverse aura permis d’ajuster plein de petits trucs comme ça et de proposer de belles séries (Batgirls, c’est son idée) . Et voir Williamson reprendre Ghost-Maker en parallèle…

Il aura fait un très bon passage au global. De toute façon, il est trop fort, ce mec.

C’est un peu le problème avec ces personnages de comics qui ont deux vies assez distinctes durant leur carrière, on aura toujours des scénaristes et des lecteurs qui auront envie de revoir la première version même si la seconde est une évolution forte et logique (et je ne les en blâme pas).

Happy Galentine’s Day from THE BATGIRLS!

The Batgirls’ investigation leads them to believe new street artist Tutor is responsible for putting innocent Gothamites under trance, using his murals and then stealing their stuff. Luckily for them, Tutor is hosting an underground art show at the old shipyard tonight, so Babs and the Batgirls go undercover as attendees, so the Batgirls can prove to Babs once and for all that Tutor’s the one behind all the strange crimes! And to make matters worse, Babs bumps into Tutor’s ex at the event! Oof!
