Comic Book Review: Batgirl #2 (DC)

Batgirl #2 - Written by Hope Larson; Art by Rafael Albuquerque; Colors by Dave McCaig; Published by DC Comics

By Kenny Howell

Batgirl moves onto Singapore in another fun issue of her rebirthed series.

After her encounter with the Fruit Bat in the first issue, Babs travels to Singapore to figure out more about the mysterious fighter dressed as a school girl she fought in the first issue. She is also trying to figure out her traveling companion Kai, who she might be falling for.

Barbara goes looking for fights at a MMA gym, but they tell her they are no longer accepting girls. Ticked at the sexism, she finds a trainer that says she can get her some fights. However, this trainer might be key to the mystery she is trying to solve.

Once again, Writer Hope Larson has brought a delightful Barbara to the pages, cute, funny and an excellent action hero. That is punctuated by the art of Rafael Alburquerque, and especially the colors of Dave McCaig, which you can tell by that lively cover above. Every page pops, and really is a feast for the eyes.

The Batgirl series continues to be a delight all around, and where you need to go if you just want joy in your life.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10
