The follow-up to the bestselling, critically acclaimed BATGIRL VOL. 1: THE BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE!

All-star creative team Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr continue their fan-favorite run in BATGIRL: FAMILY BUSINESS, featuring guest-appearances by Dick Grayson, Batwoman, Spoiler, the students of Gotham Academy and more!

Over the past few months, Barbara Gordon has made some big changes to her Batgirl alter ego. She has a new look, new support team and new home base in Burnside--Gotham's trendiest neighborhood. But just when she's hitting her stride, her father drops a bombshell: Babs isn't the only masked crime-fighter in the family anymore. Jim Gordon is the new Batman.

After the original Batman fell fighting the Joker, the former police commissioner was given a high-tech super-suit and asked to take up the mantle. With a team of G.C.P.D. officers watching his every move, Jim Gordon's new law-and-order Batman has zero tolerance for vigilantism. He's been ordered to arrest any unsanctioned superhero in Gotham--and Batgirl is next!

Another volume of the new creative direction for the character, this has Barbara interacting with other members of the Batman world, including her own father, who has taken on the mantle of the Dark Knight, as well as Batwoman and Dick Grayson. The tone's still quite different from what has come before.

This volume is ...hyperactive. I appreciate the idea of having young Babs crossover with the other Gotham titles - Batwoman, Gotham Academy, Grayson - but it just feels disconnected, like there isn't a real story. I couldn't get into it. Also, the art is too bubbly-tween.
