Batgirl #40

   Fans of this series have wondered if the "new" Batgirl was entirely on the "up and up."

   Since the new creative team arrived, the character has gone through quite a few changes - a new look, a new group of supporting characters, a new location - and she looks like a completely different character.

   The clever cliffhanger last issue brought all those questions to the fore, and (without giving away the plot twist), this issue brings it all to an exciting, city-hanging-in-the-balance, can-Batgirl-and-her-friends-save-the-day conclusion.

   I have to admit that I've been enjoying this series - it's not always easy to follow, and I'm not sure why Barbara's cut ties with her Birds of Prey allies, but the stories are fresh, the approach is unique, and the art is original.

   It's not for everyone, but if you're looking for something fresh, this well worth trying.

Grade: A-
