> The topic of discussion for this issue is really/obviously Batgirl actually stripping and how/if fandom can 'bare' it (sorry, couldn't resist). It did seem too much over the line for this sweet naive heroine as remembered in her early years. She's not your father's superheroine anymore - and probably not for young readers again despite no cover warning to the contrary. Catwoman no problem their - Batman'll want to read Babs report on that. This debatably outrageous and debatably disturbing element of the story was undoubtedly balanced by it's very entertaining and light-hearted telling.

Bear in mind that Barbara wasn't really "sweet and naive" to that extent. She was older than most characters of her ilk taking an identity, being in her 20's and having graduated college before she first became Batgirl (assuming that's still in place).

i am thinking kevin mcguire is going to get a lot of batgirl commisions at cons and things for the forseeable future

eye candy aside ( which it really isnt ) this is a good fun story by fabian and kevin
