Batgirl #3: Steph proves her mettle as Batgirl, fighting on through hallucinations induced by Scarecrow's drugs.
And the birth of Team Batgirl:
Batgirl #4: Because it always makes me laugh.
Batgirl #5. Every scene involving Damian and Steph is pure gold, I swear to god.
Batgirl #10: Steph runs into Nick Gage (who has only ever met her as Batgirl), tries to go for the cryptic double-talk, and ends up completely weirding him out. Bahaha. Oh Steph, ilu.
Batgirl #15: Because lol. Just lol.
Batgirl #17: Steph trying to teach Damian how to be a kid. D'awwww.
Batgirl #20: After a shaky start to her day-saving...
...Steph save the day with a combination of quick wits and some handy magnetic gooperangs.
Batgirl #24: Am I a hopeless softy if I admit that this issue still makes me tear up every time I read it? Because it totally does. I was, and still am, so bitterly disappointed that this comic was cut short prematurely - and right in the middle of a story arc, no less - but in spite of the shittiness of the circumstances, I don't think Bryan Q. Miller could have given Steph a better send-off.
One of my favourite little scenes from Steph's Black Mercy-induced hallucinations. I hadn't realised how often Nell (the adorable ten-year-old African American girl, here depicted as Future!Batgirl) appeared in the comics till I began re-reading them. I think she must pop up at least three times over the course of the series (four times, including this issue).
And this. Just. This scene. I want to hug this scene.
