Batgirl 13 :: A Blade of Memory

Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Ed Benes

A bloody mess. That's how Batgirl is left after being stabbed in the abdomen by her new nemesis, Knightfall. Charise's role in the death of the Carnes family is revealed, but regardless of her involvement in that crime, her actions after that are what show how damaged she truly is. Meanwhile, Batgirl, running on fumes, proves she is a hero through and through; she is there to help the defenseless, despite their past sins; this belief system of hers will soon be put to the test.

Even though the clash with Knightfall is cut short, Gail Simone provides a pretty scary view of the many dangers Batgirl has surrounded herself with; the past year has been all about building a world for her to play in, but now that game is about to get deadly. Even if she makes it out unscathed from the Joker's attack on the bat-family, there are terrible menaces waiting for her on the other side. Beautiful art by Ed Benes, and a pretty cool die-cut cover; this issue's got it all.

Coincido totalmente con todos tus comentarios. En otro orden de ideas, qué me cuentas de que la nueva Hawkwoman es rubia??? A veces esta bien invonar, a veces no. Creo que este es el caso. Extraño a la anterior Shayera, debe ser que me crié con los productos, cartas, etc, diseñadas por José García López. Abrazo desde Argentina y me gusta mucho tu blog. Juan Manuel
