    Full review here.
    Good review but the Batman/Batgirl interaction is what made the issue for me (despite the ignored disconnect from Jim's alienation from her in Batgirl). Is this a bi-weekly book release they got going on? Digging it so far.

    Good setup for the Falcone story, setting up character moments very well.
    Tend to agree with this assessment - except disagree about the words. We need the exposition since the New52 history aint what it used to be.

    Agree here too. Slow but solid. #1>#3>#4>#2 storywise but the art of the other 3 easily was more exciting than #4.

    Thaaanks for that! Not. Y'know how you get a song stuck in your head for too long. Now, I got that stupid panel image stuck in mine! WHAT IS up with those cups??

    Someone didn't get the memo: it's suppose to be a WEEKLY title.

    I think it's just suppose to be a lamp.

    Yeah you can just make out the base of the lamp, it's just badly placed in the corner so the stand itself gets lost. It took me a little while to work out what it was as well, I thought somebody was in the house ready to get the mother while Steph was on the phone with her!

    The ending of "Batgirl: Wanted" implies Jim's ordeal has made him want to repair the relationship with his daughter. He doesn't know she's Batgirl. And, for her part, Batgirl won't let her father be the victim of a crime even if he is a tool sometimes. This issue was completely in character for her, and it was nice to see her stand up to Bruce as she did in their last encounter: yes, she's wearing the Bat, but she's still not under his control.
