What You Need to Know:

After harrowingly escaping her own mind, Barbra Gordon is working her best to maintain her school and social life while being Batgirl and keeping the peace of Burnside. But a new threat is about to hit the streets . . .

In This Issue:

A biker gang called the “Speed Demonz” have started selling a new version of Adderall called “Easy-A”, which has already caused a few deaths. So, Batgirl is not letting that last long after a run-in with the group. During the scramble, she gets a message from her friend Melissa, asking for the #babssignal. Turns out, an old classmate of theirs—Jacob—has been showing up at the hospital Melissa volunteers at a few times and she’s starting to worry he may be in with the wrong crowd. Not one to turn a blind eye on a friend, Babs is on the case only to find that their friend is working for the one and only Two-Face! But the tables are turned on both of them when Jacob decides that the wrong choices he has been making are really the right ones.

My Thoughts:

This is actually an interesting filler issue as you really don’t know what’s going to happen or how it’s going to end. It has a lot of interesting plot twists for a filler, but it also makes some strong points about the choices we are given in life, not to mention how we handle to those choices and that can be kind of enlightening in way. But in Batgirl fashion, it’s also has its entertaining moments; it’s always a pleasure to see Two-Face being his devilishly awesome self. The Variant Cover art may be my favorite of all time.

Summary
Batgirl is still entertaining as always, and Two-Face is a pleasure to see. Another fun issue with its usual message at the end that makes you think. Hopefully a larger storyline is on its way from all these self-building issues Barbra is having.
