Présentation de l'éditeur

Three years ago, the Joker took everything from Barbara Gordon. Now he wants more. Returning to Gotham City after a long absence, the Clown Prince of Crime is out to free Batman from his closest allies-his “family.” He targets Batgirl, putting Barbara face-to-face with her worst nightmare: the man who put her in a wheelchair.

But the attack on her and her fellow Bat-heroes is only the beginning of Batgirl’s family problems. Her mother - newly returned after more than a decade of estrangement - has been captured. Her father has been poisoned. And her brother, psychopathic Arkham Asylum escapee, may actually be working with the Joker. Can Batgirl save the lives of the people she is closest to from the two maniacs who have hurt her most?

BATGIRL: DEATH OF THE FAMILY is a searing tale of the blood ties that bind, from writers Gail Simone (SECRET SIX) and Ray Fawkes (CONSTANTINE) and artists Daniel Sampere (TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA) and Ed Benes (BIRDS OF PREY). Collects BATGIRL #14-19, BATGIRL ANNUAL #1 and BATMAN #17.


From the Hardcover edition.

A Great Addition to the Death of the Family storyline 29 octobre 2013
Par Scott Knight - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Gail Simone’s Batgirl: Death of the Family is an excellent addition to the Death of the Family story. Because of her past history with Joker, this is one of the more personal, and darker, volumes in the saga. Barbara Gordon has a very personal stake in ending Joker’s reign of terror and appears to be willing to go to extremes to accomplish it. She begins to approach some tough moral territory, and Simone handles this conflict very well.

In addition to dealing with the threat of Joker, Barbara is being tracked by her sadistic and psychopathic brother, James. As he establishes a relationship with Barbara’s roommate, he also orchestrates a confrontation between he, Barbara, and their recently returned mother.

There are a number of impactful scenes, including James nearly taking on the Joker, a phone call from Dick Grayson (Nightwing) to Barbara, and the showdown with the Gordon family. I did not expect the quality of this book to be so high, but in my opinion it rivals the main story running through Scott Synder’s Batman.

I highly recommend this book. Barbara Gordon has become a very interesting and complicated character since the New 52 began, and this book just raises the bar even higher. It is as good as anything currently available.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

Ties for the best part of this crossover event. 4 novembre 2013
Par J. A Magill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
DC’s “New 52” reboot came with no small share of controversies, few as heated as the decision to “de-chair” Barbara Gordon, formerly Batgirl. While I don’t come at this from a political perspective, I enjoyed Gordon’s Oracle persona. There’s a lot to be said for a character who works almost entirely “between her ears,” and it made those times when she kicked-a$$ against those who invaded her lair all the more enjoyable. Besides that, it made for an interesting challenging for her writers, explaining why in a world of New Gods and mystical realms her spine remained stubbornly broken. Of course all of this changed in the New 52. Barbara’s paralysis at the hands of the Joker was now only temporary. Psychologically scared, she was physically able as ever. If like me you questioned that decision, you’ll likely find yourself reassured by this “Death in the Family” Batgirl volume in which she must again confront the Joker. Indeed, with the exception of Snyder’s Batman volume, this is almost certainly the best work in the story arc.

The reason actually has less to do with Barbara/Batgirl as it does with writer Gail Simone’s excellent use of Barbara’s sociopath brother, James Gordon Jr. Dramatically, remorseless and humorless James Jr makes a surprisingly good counterpoint to the Joker’s peculiar insanity. It brings the Joker into sharper relief. Simone’s use of the two villains helps push Barbara to the breaking point. And part of the success of this comic remains the focus on Barbara as a person who puts on a batsuit, rather than allowing the woman beneath the mask to become incidental (though I’d love someone to do a study on the number of kisses/per book in those with guy vs. girl heroes. Seriously, it gets a bit ridiculous here! Does it always have to go back to romance?). Either way, the stakes here could not be higher.

Ed Benes also does excellent work here. So much of this story depends on communicating the characters’ emotions, and his ability to create specific complex expressions works beautifully. This is also an action packed book – albeit one that often veers into the seriously creepy – and Benes captures movement with a Perez like aplomb.

I’ve not previously followed the Batgirl series, but Gail Simone has sold me with this volume. No doubt, I’ll be on the look out for the next Batgirl volume – in or out of a chair, she’s made Barbara Gordon a character to watch!

The best "New 52" Batgirl collection so far! 30 octobre 2013
Par Invisiboy2001 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This generous hard-cover edition includes issues #14 through #19 of the regular "Batgirl" series, as well as "Batgirl Annual" #1, the Batgirl story from the "DC Young Romance" special, and "Batman" #17 (which stars Batman and features Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood and Batgirl).

In my opinion, this is the best volume of "Batgirl" yet. Though the first two volumes were good, Batgirl was still finding her feet after a lengthy paralysis -- but the Batgirl in this volume is confident and tough. And not only does Batgirl have to fight The Joker and his goons, she also takes on the Court of Owls, James Gordon Jr. (her psychotic, murdering brother), and Firebug. Each villain puts Batgirl through her paces, but she survives -- though much worse for the wear.

The art is this volume is not consistent, but it ranges from very good to amazing. The first story is the Batgirl/Catwoman outing from the annual -- and it is beautifully written and painted. This story is also important for "Birds of Prey" fans because it documents a huge change in direction for the Mary/Strix character. The art of Ed Benes and Daniel Sampere fills out most of the rest of this volume, and their work is wonderful.

Highly recommended.
Not bad for Batgirl 1 mai 2015
Par Sam Quixote - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
One of the downsides to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s runaway success with their Batman series has been the way the Batman editors have decided to tie in the many, less-successful Bat-titles into it in a desperate attempt to boost sales.

Every Snyder Batman arc is an event, it seems, so with Death of the Family Batgirl has to awkwardly find a way to fit into it without appearing contrived - which she doesn’t manage to do. There are also unsuccessful tie-ins to Night of the Owls and Damian’s death.

The flipside of this is that Snyder clearly has better ideas than Gail Simone - that Knightfall stuff in the last volume was rubbish - so forcing her to write about the Talons, the Joker, and James Gordon Jr, instead of some street kid called Ricky, her sexually-ambiguous roommate Alysia, and a space-jockey-helmeted Firebug, makes for slightly better comics in Volume 3.

Catwoman is hired to bust out the female Talon Batgirl fought in the last book (why didn’t the Court just have one of their many other Talons do this?) and Batgirl gets tossed into the mix for an all-female superhero team-up. It fleshes out the female Talon’s character some but it’s still an unnecessary extra issue on top of all the other Owls shenanigans.

Then we’re onto the main event as Joker tries to marry(!) Batgirl… for some reason. Joker’s got Babs’ mum tied to a bomb so she’s gotta go along with it, but why marriage…? I’m guessing the Bat-editors decided that they couldn’t get Batman and Joker to marry (Joker just thinks they’re besties) so they decided to make Barbara marry the guy who crippled her because that’s messed up, ie. something the Joker would do? (In the New 52, The Killing Joke still happened but Barbara recovered the use of her legs after a spell.)

It’s really not the best storyline and has no payoff but I guess Simone had to come up with something for the event and actually it’s not a terrible read - the Joker is just too good a character to be boring!

Continuing the smorgasbord of random storylines, the short from Young Romance #1 where Batgirl kisses Ricky, a street kid with a crutch, because it’s Valentine’s Day, is also included. Like the Night of the Owls issue, it’s very throwaway stuff.

At some point Damian dies so Batgirl has to acknowledge it leading to an awkwardly shoehorned-in two and a bit pages where she calls up Dick Grayson and has a cry before pulling herself together and getting on with her own storyline - so pointless!

Ray Fawkes steps in to write a couple of terrible issues focusing on a new storyline about another of Snyder’s hits, James Gordon Jr, Babs’ psychotic bro. Fawkes (and Simone, who comes back for the final issue of the book) take a superbly creepy chap like James Jr who stole the show in The Black Mirror, and turn him into a cartoony villain whose motivations, when revealed after a drawn-out game of cat and mouse, are so embarrassingly stupid I would’ve preferred he kept quiet at the end.

I did like how at the start of the James Jr story Babs is at her computer trawling the GCPD’s files and catching crooks that way - just like she did as Oracle way back when. Ah!

It’s worth mentioning that the reason Fawkes took over was because DC fired Gail Simone via email. This is because DC is seemingly run by knuckleheads who change their minds at the drop of a cowl! Anyway, Fawkes didn’t exactly set the series on fire and the readers demanded Simone return or they’d boycott the title, so back she came.

These aren’t bad comics but they’re definitely not great. Batgirl does the same thing every time: punch, kick, move onto the next enemy. The Talon? Punch, kick, done. Joker? Punch, kick, done. Firebug? Punch, kick, done. James Jr? Punch, kick, done. The stories are resolved in the least inspired ways, which is all the more disappointing given that Babs is written as this genius intellect yet she uses none of her brains in resolving her problems, just the same old punch/kick combo (with some trick Batarangs thrown in for good measure). It’s a case of the writers not living up to the level the characters have been portrayed as.

Batgirl Volume 3 collects perfectly average superhero comics that are unchallenging, unoriginal, easy-to-read and instantly forgettable. B-sides to Snyder’s A-sides.

Batgirl must face a deadly Talon even after the Court of Owls has been defeated and uses the help of Catwoman to do it. Then, Barbara must conquer her fears of the Joker and face not only him but her brother as well and save Gotham from two deadly psychopaths!

The third volume to Gail Simone’s Batgirl series brings us issues #14-19 of the series along with Batman #17, the Batgirl story from Young Romance #1, and Batgirl Annual #1 all encased in a hardcover edition similar to the previous volumes. The book starts with the Annual and has Batgirl and Catwoman teaming up against remnants of the Court of Owls. Admira Wijaya and Daniel Sampere did the artistry here and did a really good job. The story worked, having both Batgirl and Catwoman act in-character and brought the Court of Owls back into reality and not just a “once-and-done” event. The book then moves into the Joker story with Daniel Sampere doing art this time with Ed Benes. These issues fit very well and it plays into the Batman #17 issue by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo which finishes it off. The Young Romance section written by Ray Fawkes and drawn by Julius Gopez ties into a previous issue but seems a bit pointless overall. The book ends with the remaining Batgirl issues written by Ray Fawkes to start with and Gail returns at issue #19 and Daniel does all the pencil work. These issues deal with Batgirl’s brother and the terror he causes to her family; much like the Joker did a few nights before.

Overall, this was a great read and the Joker story and her brother’s tale led right into each other very well. The Young Romance issue, while nice to be included, seemed pointless overall. The art was nice all around and really fleshed out some of the characters and the minor villain Firebug was designed really neat. Speaking of which, the back of the book contains some neat character drawings as a bonus. Worth the sticker price, definitely.
