What You Need to Know: As it is the Anniversary issue of our beloved Batgirl, this issue is a little different than normal. There are 4 different stories going on, all connecting with each other in a way but only 1 is going to be a continuing story.

 

In This Issue: The first story has Batgirl sneaking in on the funeral of someone that she had saved from the Scarecrow months ago. During the scramble, she discovered that he had been taking charge and saving the group of kids he was with on a field trip. Feeling like there is no Justice for good people, she begins to doubt if it’s even worth it, until she gets a visit from The Mother of the departed boy. After a heartfelt talk, Batgirl realizes that what she does is important and the only way to prove it is to keep doing what she is doing.

Wanting some quiet time, the next story has Barbra calling her old love, Dick Grayson who has taken the Honeymoon suite that was reserved for Bruce and his future wife after the events of Batman #50. But the two decide to take advantage of the alone time and talk about what they want and realize it may be not so different.

After a little rest time, Barbra is back on the streets of Burnside as Batgirl investigates a string of break ins. But things get more serious and intense then she realizes as she is face to face with an old foe.

The last story center’s around Batgirl crashing March Harriet’s attempt to break into a very special vault, we learn her true background and why she is who she is before joining forces with the Mad Hatter.

All the stories are so well written and with Batgirl’s new writer, Mairghread Scott, taking the helm our girl is in for some rough nights. Barbra always has moments when she questions wither being a vigilante is worth is and these stories merge nicely together to remind her of what is really important. Die-hard Batgirl/Nightwing fans will fall in love with their side story and hope it continues. The art on all the stories is beautiful and each artist was chosen perfectly for the story they were assigned with.

Summary
Batgirl is back from Gotham and the wedding that never was and has no time for breaks with all the Madness going on in Burnside. From funerals, costume parties, and murderous art thefts, it’s no wonder Barbra needs a little down time with her old friend and flame Dick Grayson.
