Barbara Gordon's ready for a fresh start. She's packing her bags, crossing the bridge, and heading to Gotham's coolest neighborhood: Burnside. And when a freak fire burns up her costume and gear, Babs has the chance to become a whole new Batgirl!

But she barely slips on her new DIY costume before Batgirl starts trending as Gotham's first viral vigilante -- and attracting a new wave of enemies who want her social-media spotlight for themselves. Meanwhile, the girl beneath the gear's got a whole new crew of friends, college classes that are kicking her Bat-butt and a dating scene that can make anyone want to swipe left on life.

This bat's done living in the shadows. But will the bright lights of Burnside burn her for good?

Red-hot creative team Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr reinvent Barbara Gordon from the boots up in BATGIRL: THE BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE (collects issues #35-40 and a story from SECRET ORIGINS #10).

I am guessing that this is DC's attempt to compete with Marvel/Disney's younger super hero line. I did read it over before giving it to my 8 year old son just to make sure and found it a fairly boring read....funny enough that was his comment as well. It is basically a graphic novel about nothing.

It's fun to see a superhero who isn't a teenager but who also isn't all grown up. In this comic, Batgirl is a 21 year old who is juggling grad school and online dating along with her superhero career. Her hipster neighborhood, while no connection to our Burnside Street, should feel right at home to Portlanders.

Marvel has Ms. Marvel and DC has Batgirl - both aimed at today's younger generations and great stuff for youth to read. The story got better and better as I kept reading. It's a departure from the previous direction this title had but it's a good departure.
