It’s that time of the month again, Batgirl fans! And I’m back with another recap of a Batgirl issue that seemed really, really short while I was reading it but seems much longer now that I’m typing up this recap. (This is how it always happens.)

Once I’m done with catching up on the current seasons, I will go back to the very beginning for each show to fill in any future hiatus periods which, given the wonky airing schedules for both shows, doesn’t seem unlikely.

And with that intro out of the way, let’s dig in!
