Batgirl comes face
to face with Knightfall for the first time. This is the issue that
shows how much Babara has evolved since retaking the mantle. During
the first months of The New 52 she was insecure, guilt-ridden, and
even self-loathing; now she is confident and more comfortable in her
own boots; one thing that has not changed is her spark, her
compassion, and the fact that she has no problem admitting she makes
mistakes, all of which allow for great characterization.
returns in a big way adding more complexity to Knightfall and her
story, while the James Gordon Jr. subplot takes off with what will
surely be some creepy and disturbing developments down the road.
Ardyan Syaf, as always, delivers top-notch artwork, although some
subtle changes in style can be observed. One last player is
introduced to the story by the end of the issue, and there are not
enough words to express how exciting that is. Enter: Batwoman!
