Batgirl #4 - A Review

Having learned just what sort of bad business her old friend Kai has gotten involved in - and just why he's being hunted across Asia by a gang of newbie super-villains - Barbara Gordon turns her attentons to tracking down the gang's leader, the mysterious figure known only as Teacher!

I love Hope Larson's take on Barbara Gordon. Larson's scripts have restored the super-genius detective that seems to have been absent since Gail Simone's run on the series. The plot is a thrilling thing that shows Barbara to be a capable heroine even outside her usual comfort zone in Gotham. And the noir tone of the mystery is perfectly brought to life by Rafael Albuquerque and Dave McCaig.
