Batgirl becomes the
devil's advocate as she questions the approach of her mission and
that of her fellow crusaders in "All Snug in Their Beds," making
reference to the rich and privileged that most often than not seem
to be the ones being most protected by the local hero community.
Without being preachy, Gail Simone touches on a current social
subject, not only as seen by her lead character, but also other
members of the cast.
The issue is mostly
a set-up chapter where the dominoed daredoll crosses paths with the
Disgraced, a band of over-the-top costumed sociopaths serving a very
disturbed woman: Charise Carnes. Her innocence or culpability will
be the overarching subject of the storyline, and the beginning of
what DC promises to be Batgirl's biggest headache. Alitha Martinez
receives her first full issue in the title; not a bad job at all,
especially in the action-oriented scenes. Good to see more and more
female talent in comics.
