• A “DEATH OF THE FAMILY” tie-in as Barbara tries to save her family from a fate much worse than death!

• Has Batgirl come this far just to fall victim once again to The Joker?

I am praying he makes her Oracle again. I want Stephanie Brown, dammit!

I'm really hoping The Joker makes some "boner" jokes.
BIGGGHEADTJ - 11/12/2012, 7:14 AM
Joker is a maniac..... I LOVE IT!!!!

This is stupid. There was no reason to give her her legs back. Comics can't follow through with any action. everything is rebooted and retconned in time. It makes the time I invested feel pointless.

Durango95 - 11/12/2012, 7:43 AM
Its bullshit that they cut off his face and made him wear it ala Leatherface.

DarKnightRises: She can walk again because of the reboot.

And by the way... This art is BEAUTIFUL!

This looks good, although the only Batman family series I still read is "Bstman"

Love the artwork! Batgirl #13 was pretty good. Looking forward to reading Batgirl #14.

Not sure if you're serious or just trying to be like Grif, Netman... but Gail Simone does not write shit books. It's just not something that happens. ever.

That said... I still miss Cass and Steph :(

Make me a sandwich woman! :P

Minghagz - 11/12/2012, 11:17 AM
I haven't been reading Batgirl... But I may pick this up and 13 as well
theomegasanction - 11/12/2012, 11:40 AM
the art does look good!
skidz - 11/12/2012, 12:39 PM
They'll show Joker wearing someone else's sawed off face, but they don't have the courage to show a flashback of here being shot.
GLprime2814 - 11/12/2012, 3:58 PM
you don't need to see her get shot, any comic fan knows when you see the jockey in Hawaiian shirt and camera and knows what issue it was from and what happend.
IronHood - 11/12/2012, 5:57 PM
That kind of sexist writing & it's coming from a female writer? I guess if this says one thing, it's that Gail Simone isn't a feminist.
MutantEquality - 11/12/2012, 6:05 PM
I just reread The Killing Joke and I have to say...IT PISSES ME OFF!!! He kills Jason Todd, he shoots Barbara strips her clothes and takes photos of her naked, tries to make Jim Gordon insane, Tim ends up a "Joker" the HELL hasn't he killed him!?!? He just laughs at the end of Killing Joke?? Just laughs after all that's happened to Batgirl and Jim??
Ok ok. I love Batman. I do. I understand he doesn't kill people to make himself different from the bad guys but COME ON!!
He chooses Joker over his kids plain and simple. Doesn't matter what happens to the people he loves he WANTS Joker to live.
Death in the family shows us again just that.

End of rant.
IronHood - 11/12/2012, 6:08 PM
@venom007 It's an interesting story line. The guardians must be fed up with events of the manhunter slaughtering & the GLC for having their own agendas & haven't gone they way they've for seen. By the GLC eventually stopping this third-army & proving to the guardians that the GLC is a true force for good & let them realize what they first set out to do millenia ago. Either that or you could go the shitty route with the guardians were under mind control. I just hope that Baz is the key that fixes his problems & saves the world from the third army as well. Corny? Yes. Awesome story. Definitely.

Batman needs to grow a pair. A guy with a knife and some clown makeup is his arch-nemesis. Lame.
MisterBabadook - 11/16/2012, 3:08 AM
This issue is THE SHÏT. Straight up. This is the definite new52 Batgirl story, and Batgirl has been really good. This book is such a great tipping point.
MisterBabadook - 11/16/2012, 3:22 AM
Alright to everyone that keeps asking WHY she's back:

Part of what makes this book so awesome is the internal commentary. Barbara was Oracle. Through intense physical therapy she recovered, so her first two cases she's incredibly weak, rusty and unsure of herself. Then her mom came back into her life and revealed James Jr threatened to kill everyone if she didnt leave, and she believed him. By the end of Barbara's third major case at the end of Batgirl #13, she has regained her confidence as Batgirl and has made up w/ her mom (who visited Jim just prior to DotF) and suddenly this happens and knocks her off her new "high horse".

You're caught up: buy this issue now.
