Two days ago, I wrote a full post on this, and the site crashed or something, and I lost the entire post, and I've been dragging on posting again.
*argh* Just had to retype this reply for that reason. AFAIK management is currently looking into connection issues to the MB's.
I've never been much of a big DC guy. I thought the bat-books were intriguing, but haven't gone into too much else. Usually it's just if a writer/artist I really like happens to do a DC book. Batgirl was really the first book I checked out for the sake of checking out at DC, subsequently becoming my favorite book.
Yeah, more Marvels on my pulllist too but BG constantly did herself proud on the faves of the month list.
I gotta say, this is the first time I've been upset about a cancellation/ending since probably Farscape went off the air on Sci-Fi (it was still sci-fi then, not syfy). What, pray tell, does Farscape have to do with Batgirl? A lot on various thematic levels. Both were very fun, light hearted in the midst of their respective genres turning into really dark, gritty grittiness. Both had a lot of laughs. Both had compelling leads that were really difficult not to root for once you got to know them. Nothing's really hit me emotionally since that series, but Batgirl managed that.
Hmmm. Interesting. May have to sample the syndicated eps.
Obviously the series was ended real quick, and it felt like it took a big turn from what would have been a continuing plot real book, to a "oh let's wrap up". Everything was too quick about it, from the exit of the cluemaster to having several pages of dream sequence (even though they were very appropriate and thematic, as quinn pointed out). I just hated to see it end, I think. It reminded me of the end of Deep Space 9 where I had to watch several minutes of clips to a Frank Sinatra tune. I just thought, why wouldn't they give me something new, anything?
Kai Winn wouldve made a marvelously despicable Batgirl villainess... but instead here's a more fun Leeta clip/sig - maybe she is something like Steph in her 30's [or is Steph more Dax]? :
Still missing my brother...
Would definitely recommend watching Farscape.
Leeta I think is a bit too promiscuous to be Steph. Dax does fit in an odd way. Does that makes Sisko Batman?
