Batgirl #5 - A Review
Face to face with the mysterious Teacher, Barbara Gordon is in for the fight of her life. With her senses enhanced by a cutting-edge treatment, Teacher is capable of anticipating every move Batgirl can make! Yet Barbara's new training may give her the edge she needs to win if she is ready to forget everything she knows...
Beyond Burnside concludes in an epic fashion with this issue. Hope Larson spun a golden tale about the Barbara Gordon we all know and love - a confident, smart heroine who overcomes obstacles on her own. And while it took some time to win me over, the artwork by Rafael Albuquerque and Dave McCaig proved perfectly suited to portraying the action-movie aesthetic of Larson's story.
