A Quick Look at Batgirl #4

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller. Pencils: Lee Garbett.

What Happened: This issue was one of those basic, "A day in the life of" type of comic books. You know, "Meet Steph Brown. By day she's your basic college student, by night she's the fantastic Batgirl!" Steph waits for her mother to go to work at night, throws on her BG duds, halts a few random crimes, defeats Superman foe Livewire and heads back back home before dawn, barely getting any sleep before her mother wakes her up to go to school. Annnnd that's the long and short of this one.

What I Thought: For what it was, this was a good comic. The cover said it best, "Meet the new Batgirl!" That's pretty much what this book did, it introduced Steph to any fans who may not have known who she was. Was it a great comic book? Nah, but it did do exactly what I think it wanted to do, which is to show that while Steph is an experienced crime fighter, she does still have some ways to go.

Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.Sure the suit is insulated, but what about Steph's face!?!
