Goodreads Synopsis:

A part of DC Universe: Rebirth!

Barbara Gordon looks to add a new bullet point to her already impressive Batgirl resume: travel agent. Having just (barely!) survived the Battle of Burnside and verging on an Arkham-worthy breakdown, the star pulls a Kerouac and gets on the road to find herself.

Follow Babs on her worldwide quest in Batgirl, Volume 1: Beyond Burnside, with New York Times best-selling author Hope Larson and award-winning artist Raphael Albuquerque leading the way!

Collecting: Batgirl 1-6


I really like Batgirl. She’s a unique super hero because she was not born with her powers. She is good with technical things, so that is her special talent. Her father is Commissioner Gordon, who is the head of police in Gotham.

In this story, Barbara Gordon travels to Asia where she meets an old friend. I liked the Asian setting. She travelled to different countries. This setting was different because most of the comics I read are set in the U.S. so it was nice to see another part of the world featured.

In the final comic, some familiar faces appeared, including Poison Ivy. I’m excited to read the next installment after seeing the characters she will encounter in the future.

What to read next:

  • Batgirl, Volume 2: Son of Penguin by Hope Larson


  • Batgirl, Volume 1: Batgirl of Burnside by Cameron Stewart
