Batgirl is working day and night in Batgirl #31, from DC. By day, she’s volunteering for the Alejo political campaign. By night, she’s scouting the city, trying to avoid getting killed while battling Cormorant. Whatta 24/7 life!

Written by Mairghread Scott and penciled by Paul Pelletier, the issue is inked by Norm Rapmund and coloured by Jordie Bellaire.

Issue 31 continues with Part Two of the “Old Enemies” storyline, gives us lots of interpersonal drama, and a ton of fighting. A nicely balanced combo of entertainment. The art is aptly handled by Pelletier, who is skilled in keeping the visual narrative flowing. Great fun and some nice plot development in this issue.

DC Comics, Batgirl #31, $3.99 for 21 pages of content. Assume Teen rating

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
