Batgirl #4 already has thread. How 'bout ranking these other four number fours that came out this month? Include BG if you like. How's the suggested order below? Surprisingly, these weren't all that bad. What do you think?

1st http://thebatmanuniverse.net/comic/comic-news/preview-catwoman-4/
Enjoyable narration and charcterization of Selina. Dealing with the 'death in the familly' and potential intro of replacement, in Gwen, despite Catwoman's poignant promise against it during their entertaining conversation. Got to meet Reach and some police cast. Believable action and one heck of a cliffhanger ...or is it skyhanger?

2nd http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=preview&id=10728
Action issue and expected Batescape. Good art and good 'last words' by Batman. New origin details of Batman and new episode of parenting Robin. Bathound. "Nobody" is a formidable foe with intriguing dynamic setup with Robin.

3rd http://www.maxim.com/amg/STUFF/Dirty+Briefs+Blog/Comics+Exclusive:+A+Preview+Of+Birds+Of+Prey+No.4+From+DC
Got to meet Starling, an interesting new heroine. Got to see nuKatana. Group adversary dujour in The Cleaners. Impressive moments with Canary and Ivy. Batgirl not much more than a minor guest.

4th http://comics.cosmicbooknews.com/content/dc-comics-preview-batman-4
Lots of exposition on the Owl Society stuff. Kinda too much. Burce was a kid dectective. A new Batcave look. Nighwing not much more than a minor guest.

I miss Dan.

The only one I'm reading is Batman proper. The others didn't even hook me enough with first issue previews. I dig the historical batman perspective and like the art. The Gates of Gotham Mini-series is basically the same thing, but this is an ongoing.
