10 best Batgirl comics to read when the movie is canceled
Next is Batgirl no. 3, Stephanie Brown. The daughter of Riddler who plagiarized Cluemaster, she was introduced as the Spoiler in Detective Comics #647 (Chuck Dixon and Tom Lyle). After a brief stint as Robin, she became Batgirl after Cassandra vacated the role. Her adventures were chronicled by Bryan Q. Miller and a rotating group of artists in the solo series “Batgirl” published from 2009 to 2011.
Miller is primarily a television writer; he got into DC Comics because he met Geoff Johns while writing for “Smallville”. Given his television roots, it’s no surprise that he writes Stephanie like Buffy Summers; She’s a lucky quipster who has to balance college life with superheroes. Although she is often knocked down, she always tries to get up. Like she did with Cass, Barbara appears as Stephanie’s mentor.
Highlights of the series include Batgirl teaming up with Supergirl in issue 13 to fight Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, who was brought to life in a malfunctioning science experiment. Stephanie then opens 15 with an abbreviated (but accurate) passage recounting the history of the Batgia family. Finally, Stephanie introduces the eerie Damian Wayne to the joy of the moon bouncing at the end of number 17.
This is the last “Batgirl” comic before DC reboots their universe with the New 52 initiative. This upsets Miller’s plans; issue 24 looks through stories that might have happened if his “Batgirl” season 2 had taken place. However, as Stephanie argues with the last words of the book, “it’s only the end if you want it to be.”
Read if: You’re a “Buffy” fan.
Where to read: Miller’s “Batgirl” run has been collected twice, first as a three-volume edition (“Batgirl Rising,” “The Flood,” and “The Lesson”) and a second edition. episode “Batgirl: Stephanie Brown”. The run can be read as a whole on DC Universe Infinite.
