257 – Batgirl: Batgirl of Burnside

Batgirl of Burnside

We finish up our review of DC’s Best of 2015 with “Batgirl: Batgirl of Burnside” by Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher. We find Babs as college student making her way out into the world on her own with an awesome roommate, a thesis, and the war against herself and her image. We talk about the innovate and risky use of social media in comics, the characterization of Barbara Gordon, and the implications of gender in this comic plus so much more. Oh, and we have a guest host! For past episodes, go to www.WelcometoComcis.com. Support the show by becoming a patron today at www.patreon.com/WelcometoComcis and gain access to bonus content.
