As Babs meets Dick

Following the events on the train seen in the preview (Which doesn't end terribly well), Babs has to go through the slightly embarassing process of reclaiming her motorcycle from the Gotham City Vehicle Pound. There she runs into a certain well known acrobat, who seems to just want to see how she is. Babs is instantly on her gaurd in such situations...

Good to know that even in the DCNu, Dick hasn't changed THAT much; Kory,,, Babs,,, Roy!

And so the chase continues... it's quite cute and rather fun, though it's sort of easy to see where it's heading, and the staging and art of the chase and fight, both mock and real (you'll see) is excellent. Dick gets a little overprotective, Babs is maybe pushing away people who care about her. There is still no actual indication of how she's walking again I might add.

There's also a slightly random seeming (and not terribly clearly delineated) flashback scene where a younger Babs and Dick demonstrate their chase technique, it's... sort of appropriately athletic. I include this scan mostly because seeing a slightly younger Dick Grayson casually performing acrobatics whilst in a immaculate dinner jacket makes a little part of my hindbrain go "Hnnnnnnrg!" :) (Yes, I know this is Batgirls title, and I am sorry but I've still not been able to find a copy of Nightwing #2 at my LCS and I'm risking Dick-withdrawal here!*)

* What do you mean, double entendre?

Point taken, and both gymnasts and ballet dancers are athletes, but the other all getting around from building top to alley and back again, I think gymnastics...

Really nice issue though

It's not here, but right after Dick flips off the building in the tux there, Babs pulls a move on the roof that definitely looks very ballet-influenced. It's really cool to see.

And I didn't study ballet much as a kid, but there are a lot of leaps, as well as flexibility and strength involved. I can see how it would be a good foundation for crime fighting when combined with martial arts - spinning, leaping, extending the legs, etc.

Oh yes, she is being drawn as a dancer, or using her leaps more if she were written as a gymnast; my point was that she had been a gymnast before, another retcon I was not happy about.

Maybe it was just the Batman The Animated Series but I could have sworn...
