Review: Batgirl #23

[Editor’s note: This review may contain spoilers]

Writer: Hope Larson

Artists: Minkyu Jung, Jose Marzan Jr. & Mat Lopes

 

Summary

“STRANGE LOOP” finale! Trapped in a prison of her own mind’s making, Batgirl must act out of character in order to reenter reality. Can she put her need to survive above the needs of those she’s sworn to protect? Or is she doomed to wander the mazes of her mind for all of eternity?!

 

Positives

The cover by Dan Mora is cool. I love the image of various Batgirls tearing Babs down.

The interior art features pencils by Minkyu Jung, inks by Jose Marzan Jr. & colors by Mat Lopes. The team does good work. The characters are expressive and there is a general fun vibe to the art. I like the style a lot.

This story is such a fun concept. I love the idea of being trapped inside your head taken to the most literal form. It provides a solid opportunity to explore the protagonist and allows a lot of creativity.

 

Negatives

There are no negatives worth mentioning in this issue.

 

Verdict

This is a great issue. The story is fun and interesting with a lot of creativity and solid character work for Babs. The art is energetic and expressive. I recommend reading this along with the previous issue for a really cool Batgirl story.
