Batgirl #44: Am I Even Loveable?

Batgirl #44

Batgirl #44 (Castellucci, Tormey, Sotomayer, Andworld Design) might be filled with beautifully illustrated epic high-fantasy dragons and magical swords, but it is a story about the fears of love through and through, taking readers on an emotional roller coaster that ends with a dramatic twist that no one will see coming.

Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3

All things taken equally, Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 (Tynion IV, Epting, Fernandez, Filardi) isn’t a bad comic per se. But it is a step back from the slam-bang fisticuffs of previous installments. There’s some great interplay between Joker and Lex, and the table is set for the (supposedly) final throwdown with the Batman Who Laughs.  It’s a table-setting issue, which is fine, but it is dragged down by inconsistent art.

Spoiler: it’s coming at you faster than light!
