[Editor’s note: This review may contain spoilers.] Writer: Hope Larson Artists: Rafael Albuquerque & Dave McCaig Summary Batgirl continues her investigation in South Korea. Positives The cover by Rafael Albuquerque is amazing. I just love the use of color on it. The cover is very unique and awesome to look at. The interior art is great as well. Pencils and inks are by Albuquerque while colors are…

Okay, look, I’ve got a question here: can all of Batgirl’s storylines stop being about whatever guy she’s dating or attracted to? I don’t know if this is my place to say this or whatever but I don’t know there’s just something that feels off about the fact that the recent Batgirl storylines are all about the guy Batgirl is dating or attracted to(well, only two so far but still). Like, There are way more interesting stories to be told with that character than just focusing on whatever issues arise with the guy she’s currently dating.

(though, I still kind of criticize Batgirl of Burnside for introducing Luke Fox as Bab’s boyfriend and then doing absolutely nothing with that relationship)

Also it sucks that Rafael Albuquerque is leaving the Batgirl rebirth series :/

After the two month-line wide-hiatus due to Convergence, THEMED VARIANTS RETURN IN JUNE! And the theme is…THE JOKER! I think it’s his 75th anniversary this year, so it makes sense!

1) Action Comics #41 by Darwyn Cooke

2) Aquaman #41 by Walter Simonson & Laura Martin

3)  Batgirl #41 by Rafael Albuquerque

4) Batman #41 by Sean Murphy & Matt Holingsworth

5) Batman/Superman #21 by Jock

6) Catwoman #41 by Javier Pulido

7) Deathstroke #7 by Lee Weeks, & R & T Horie  

8) Detective Comics #41 by Patrick Gleason & John Kalisz

9) The Flash #41 by Eddy Barrows & Marcelo Maiolo

10) Gotham Academy #7 by Craig Rousseau

Some pretty interesting covers here, and also of note? The first instances of Gotham Academy & Deathstroke receiving themed-variants! Of these my favourites are Darwyn Cooke’s (I ADORE his art), Jock’s (although it’s hard to tell that Superman is on the one side), and Catwoman #41 by Javier Pulido (with him doing the variant, and Kevin Wanda doing the standard cover, me thinks someone at DC enjoyed Marvel’s most recent volume of She-Hulk)!
