Batgirl #37

   So my first reaction to this cover was: that's not a very practical new costume for Batgirl.

    Yep, it's a bedazzled batsuit for Babs.

    Thankfully, it's not Babs. It's an imposter, and the issue follows the attempts by the real Batgirl to track down and unmask the "new" Batgirl who's stolen her image - and may just destroy her identity.

   It's a terrific issue - the best of the "new" Batgirl so far. A little dark and edgy, but ultimately uplifting and defining - and adding a wicked new mystery for Batgirl to solve.

   The art by Babs Tarr is fresh and energetic, and a great match for the story by Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher.

    I admit I wasn't too sure about this "new look" for the series, but so far it's been very successful.

   Here's hoping for more of the same!

Grade: A-
