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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

Well-written story, great Bat-tech, mostly solid art. I dig the new Bat suit, too.

To me, the title is four for four! A nice start for the flagship Bat book.

I buy the issues digitally on my iPad. Digital is a bit of a different reading experience than hardcopy, but easier and quicker to obtain. I feel sorry for comic stores if digital really takes off big. Oh: The nearest comic store to me is 70 miles away.
