Look at that scowl! Look at that Babs! Nu-Batgirl is like, “Ask me if I give a fuck.” and Babs is all, “No, bitch. I’m gonna tell you which fuck to give, and you’re gonna go do it because I’m Barbara Gordon.”
Batgirl: Year One is literally the best Babsgirl story ever, and I’ve been saying that it should come back into print for quite a while now, and guess what? It is!!!
And okay, they’ve packaged it with the four-issue Robin: Year One mini, because Babs/Dick is still a thing (and even a mini-plot within Batgirl: Year One, so), but still. $24.99. Worth it. See Babs and Dinah team up against Firefly and Killer Moth. See Babs being a kickass librarian. See Babs’ career as Oracle sort of foreshadowed.
Koumori-hime no Densetsu(Legend of the Bat Princesses)
Shiori is a chipper girl with a bright personality and a strong sense of justice. Kasuga is a quiet tomboy more comfortable on the playground than in the classroom. The two girls have nothing in common until one day, the Queen Oracle from the Bat Kingdom grants the two of them magical powers and tasks them with protecting the world. Now the two girls must overcome their differences and fight evil under the watchful guidance of Oracle. Will they be able to save the world AND the Bat Kingdom? Only time will tell!
“I think that the outcry over Barbara being Batgirl came from butthurt Stephanie Brown fans.”
No, the outcry over Babs being Batgirl again came from all sides. It came from people who were fans of the Oracle character, Cass fans, Steph fans, male fans, female fans, and pretty much anyone who had picked up a Birds of Prey comic ever. Barbara Gordon was the only prominent disabled character DC had. Her existence showed people that you didn’t need to be completely there to be a hero.
Putting her back in the Batgirl costume without a plausible explanation as to how she was able to walk again (‘miracle cure’ does not an explanation make) is the company coming out and saying, “No, sorry, you guys don’t actually matter, so you don’t need representation.”
