Batgirl
Anyone interested in DC’s New 52 Batgirl, should head on over to DestroyTheCyborg (destroythecyb.org) and check out my review of Batgirl #22.  There are definitely some surprises in this issue, and it left me wondering what the future for Batgirl might hold.  I don’t want to spoil anything here, so check it out at your local comics store and be sure to read the review.

Miss FuryAlso, for anyone who harkens back to the Golden Age of comics, you might want to check out Dynamite’s take on an old superhero, Miss Fury.  We are now up to issue #4, and I attempt (struggle might be a better word) to review issues 1-4 over at DestroyTheCyborg.  I am impressed with the writer and illustrator’s apparent knowledge of the original Miss Fury who started her career in 1941 as the Black Fury before a name change and a promotion to comic book form a year later duped her Miss Fury.  The new creators try to capture it all in this thrilling, but often confusing retake.  Check it out.
