Don't know if this'll do anything, but a bunch of Cass fans are planning on buying a digital copy of Batgirl #1 at Comixology on the 31st (it's $1.99). There are more details here

Also, if you haven't bought a digital comic before, the quality of the pages is really good.

Well, eleven issues in, and I can't say I'm really feeling this book. In fact, I feel like this book is suffering from the same problem as Paul Levitz Worlds' Finest series in terms of Barbara not really getting any interesting or worthwhile villains that match her calibre of skills as a crime-fighter. Like Levitz' baddies, Batgirl's baddies come off as silly and non-threatening despite the fact that some of them are supposed to come from a dark place and are supposed to be dangerous and threatening as a result.

On that note, I'm still not sure what the tone of this book is supposed to be. On the one hand it looks like Simone is pushing for a fun book that's fronted by a badass female lead, but at the same time it looks like she's trying to make some of the characters dark and complex somehow, and it's just not....working. I don't know....it's really feeling like another case of "you can't have your cake and eat it," but that's how this book is coming off at the moment. So far the only baddie I've genuinely enjoyed from this book was Barbara's Talon from the Night of the Owls event since she at least had an interesting backstory (and one that looks like is going to be explored again in future issues judging by the cover solicitation for #13).

I'm really hoping that this book will start to pick up by issue #13. Cause I really, really want to like this book since I like Barbara Gordon as a character. But at the moment I'm only liking her on Birds of Prey (which I should probably start posting scans of again soon). :/

That being said there is at least one character and one upcoming meet-up that look promising.
