Overview
Barbara Gordon's ready for a fresh start. She's packing her bags, crossing the bridge, and heading to Gotham's coolest neighborhood: Burnside. And when a freak fire burns up her costume and gear, Babs has the chance to become a whole new Batgirl

But she barely slips on her new DIY costume before Batgirl starts trending as Gotham's first viral vigilante -- and attracting a new wave of enemies who want her social-media spotlight for themselves. Meanwhile, the girl beneath the gear's got a whole new crew of friends, college classes that are kicking her Bat-butt and a dating scene that can make anyone want to swipe left on life.

This bat's done living in the shadows. But will the bright lights of Burnside burn her for good?

Red-hot creative team Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr reinvent Barbara Gordon from the boots up in BATGIRL: THE BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE (collects issues #35-40 and a story from SECRET ORIGINS #10).

A legendary heroine goes to trendy new places in this upbeat volume. After years of painful recovery from the gunshot that severed her spine, Barbara Gordon has a new home, a new costume, and a new attitude. Burnside, Gotham’s hippest hamlet, has welcomed her with open arms and a tempest of hashtags—this Batgirl is as much a viral star as she is superhero. Her villains are similarly current: a pair of murderous anime cosplayers, and a buzz-hungry artist. Tarr’s art brings new life to an old character, transforming bleak Gotham into a fantasy of young professional life—it’s a bold, stylish, and tremendously fun debut. Writers Fletcher (Gotham Academy) and Stewart (Sin Titulo) settle into a cheery groove, though the stories rely a little too heavily on gimmicks without digging into the deep bench of supporting cast. But overall it’s a charming romp and a wonderful setup for future adventure. (July)
