    I'm going by the volumes listed on Comicvine and DC wiki. I could be off because I honestly have no clue how DC reaches these legacy numbers
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    I believe Nightwing crossed issue #200 sometime in Rebirth, but they didn't do anything for it. I wonder if they will do anything for #250 which should be in a year or two.

    Given they included both Batgirls in the "Celebration of 50 years" thing, I wouldn't be surprised if DC counted all the Batgirl books together.

    I know Marvel has counted runs that included Legacy heroes, both short term and long term.

    I am glad that DC is celebrating these Milestones. I would like if better if they renumbered these books like Action Comics And Detective Comics, but variant covers are fine.

    That's true. And I appreciated that DC gave both Steph and Cass two issues each. Even though the hard core Babs fans were all like, "Man, they don't deserve it! It's only Babs's book!"

    I just wish that if they were going to do a 200th issue, they would include all three. It would only be fair, I think. Since together they're nearly half of the total.

    And they wonder why I'm so bitter. Seriously though, anyone who said that can piss off.

    Together, they'd be OVER half the total. Everything up until the final two pages may be crap, but Batgirl Vol 2 still counts as far as main volumes go.

    Right there with you.

    Also, I got the final page of volume 2 signed by Calafiore at Baltimore.

    Nice score! When Calafiore is doing his best, it's great stuff. Particularly a fan of his art on Secret Six and Exiles.

    Yup, he was very nice, and his art is consistently fun, even if not my fave.

    I'd just appreciate the opportunity to read more Bronze Age Batgirl stuff, honestly .

    I'm a terrible comics fan. I don't appreciate the stuff before Crisis 1 very much.

    Well, if I ever get the 50 year celebration (which I'm always tempted to, since it does celebrate Steph and Cass - same temptation for the Robin celebration volume, even though I bought War Games for Robin Steph), maybe I'll give them a try.
