As DC rolls out its plan for September, I can’t help wishing we did 5 pages a week instead of 3. Too much golden material, too few updates.
The news of Batgirl’s relaunch didn’t come as too much a surprise, as people have been hoping for Barbara’s return to fighting form for years. It’s not the switch from Oracle to Batgirl that people will be talking about, however, it’s that after 23-odd years, Barbara Gordon is getting out of the chair the Joker put her in.
I have a feeling we may be hearing about that in the mainstream press, but I might be wrong. It’s happened before (once or twice).
Todays page was done by Ron Chan:

We’ll see you back here on Friday, folks, enjoy new comic book day.
