anonymous asked:

Are there any comics or storylines about Stephanie Brown that you recommend for someone just starting out reading comics? Any recs re appreciated, thank you! :)


Her own Batgirl run is generally a solid read, particularly for a newcomer. It was how I got my own start with her. It’s got its flaws, but generally? A perfectly acceptable starting place. 

Flat out though, the best-damn Stephanie Brown can be found in Batgirl (2000-2006). She appears there in issues #20, 21, 26, 27, 28, 31, 32, 38, 53, 54, 55, and 56 (although really, it’s a damn good title in its own right so you should read the whole thing if you can).

Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes has a fantastic Steph appearance (and ACTUALLY GOOD ART, which is a rarity for Steph’s comics). It’s pretty tight and self-contained too, which makes it a good read. 

Where to start reading Stephanie Brown?

Daughter of Crystal Brown, a nurse and Arthur Brown, a failed game show host turned third-rate criminal, The Cluemaster, Stephanie Brown donned the vigilante disguise of Spoiler to in effect spoil her father’s criminal plans. Over time, she managed to become a part of the Bat Family, having a romantic relationship with the then Robin, Tim Drake. Brown eventually became the first female in-continuity Robin and the only Robin to have another secret identify before becoming the ill-fated Girl Wonder.
