While trying to muster enthusiasm for Flashpoint, I continue reading current comics.
Batman and Robin 21
A very creepy story involving the murders of people related to Arkham inmates. This title clearly has cornered the market on weird Bat stories, and I'm loving it.
Although Batman and Robin doesn't come close to the sheer terror of an evil, grinning puppet. A clown would be close. Zatanna should've known better than to trust that smirking hunk of wood no matter what sob story he gave her.
Birds of Prey 10
Now that Oracle is "dead," I can't wait to see how things will now work for the Birds. I like that Babs is going back to Oracle's roots re: being covert, but this seems like she'll be even more undercover than before, so it should be interesting. At any rate, this ended nicely, with appearances from the rest of the Bat team. Even Selina showed up at the end of things. The only part of this I wasn't happy with was the bland art, though Lau's cover rocked.
I love having so many female-starring books to read. Batgirl continues to be fun as she balances school, home life, and her latest BG cases. Wendy is developing nicely as the book's co-star, too. Definitely worth reading.
