Batgirl and the Birds of Prey 2 is another off to the races issue. High speed action, character moments, and plot movement most definitely. We are waiting are still waiting for the pay off of discovering who this Oracle identity thief person is and how the Birds are going to stop them.
Of course, with someone else using the name Oracle, this story is going to be something that is personal to our protagonists, especially Barbara Gordon who has called Jim Gordon, her father. Although we are not quite sure if Jim Gordon knows that Batgirl and Babes are one of them same, he definitely shows a lot of emotion when trying to convince Batgirl to sit this one out, for he believes that this case may be too dangerous. If you look at the picture about, you will see The Birds and J. Gordon being tailed by Santo's men. High speed chase in cars and motor bikes! You even see Batgirl with a shotgun to blow the henchmen's tires out. We can not stress enough how much Batgirl is not playing in this book.
We did mention that this fight is personal and very down home. So of course Batman makes an appearance in this book; however not his shadow, not even his silhouette over shadows the power and presence of Barbara Gordon, Batgirl.
