S10E1 - Batgirl: Year One
Show Notes

Some characters have been changed around by continuity A LOT. Barbara Gordon is high on the list. Her age has been halved, traumas suffered and erased with comic book science, careers and motivations put through a blender.

According to Veronica's 100% OBJECTIVE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY, we have found the OBJECTIVELY BEST Batgirl comic despite all that. Join us in reading Batgirl: Year One #1-9, and give Babs a chance to redeem herself after our experience with Batgirl of Burnside.

Next week will be Mini-sode #1: Who Is the Sandman?, where Veronica will answer all your Sandman-related questions. The week after that, we will be reading Sin City (1994): The Babe Wore Red (this link is to a collection, of which we are reading one issue). We invite you to read along with us.

Veronica's theme this season is Redemption (for characters we didn't like before). Monte's theme is Fem Fatales.

We finally appeared on The Colored Pages Book Club, to discuss the adorable Bingo Love! Also check out Monte, Veronica, and Melissa's separate guest appearances on Waiting on the Trade! Monte, Veronica, and Melissa also each appeared on Watching Netflix Without You! And Veronica and Melissa appeared together on Super Sideshow to discuss the finale of the Hawkeye TV show.
