Explain to Me.....Gail Simone's Batgirl

Postby GLX » Fri Mar 08, 2013 10:58 pm

Just tried to read a copy of the second hardcover from a local library and I only made it two issues in.

In all honesty, what's the appeal of the series?

White people be explaining Gail Simone's Batgirl like this:

(in nerdy white guy voice) "Oh hey, yeah, Gail Simone's Batgirl man, it's very well written."

Black people be explaining Gail Simone's Batiglrl like this:

"It sucks, sucka!"

It's if Menos: the Hands of Fate were put onto comic book form. That's the attraction to it. The comic is so bad... you can't help but chuckle at how purposely badly written it is:

I like it. I like Barbara Gordon (would rather she was still Oracle, but oh well) and I like Gail Simone. While this definitely isn't her strongest work, I think the book is still enjoyable.

A writer whose work I've never really enjoyed writing a book I'm not that interested in.
