Not reading this preview, just looking at the pictures (I don't want ANY word type spoilage), but love how they are touching on the Killing Joke still being ... well something (Damn, I said I didn't read it).

You still didn't read it did you Perry?...even I recognized that iconic event by glancing at that picture of her getting shot from Killing Joke.

no, I didn't read it. Like you, I just was able to garner they are at least bringing up the K.J so that was a win for me.

(I just don't know, without reading it, what they are saying about it)

Loved the art and I can't believe I am going to say this but .... the writing, not so much. This is a Gail Simone book? Wow, do we need more female interaction or something to bring the Simone out here, because this first trip was not that great.

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad and perhaps I put my expectations way ahead of what COULD'VE been delivered, but Gail kinda let me down on this issue. While dialog was decent, the pacing seemed off. Seemed, I don't know, non-Simone'ish.

I would hate for this to be the first "bat" book I drop, but if next issue is like this ...

I liked it.  I like that they haven't dismissed the time in the wheelchair too.  I can give Gail a couple of issues to build this new world for Babs.

Annual #1

This story is easy to follow and understand. I liked the idea of Batgirl teaming up with Catwoman. However, this issue isn't necessary to read to follow the regular series and, quite frankly, was not worh $5.00.
