Meet the Parents
We’ve all been there, dated the bad guy and trying to convince ourselves that they really aren’t that bad. Well Batgirl takes it to a whole new level when it comes to her involvement with Ethan. Well things may take a turn for the worse when meet the parents goes to a whole new level of awful. Not only is Babs trying to keep all these apps from spreading evil, she’s also trying to be an advisor to the next generation of techys, be a friend, a hero, and now maybe a girlfriend?
I have to say this book keeps going back and forth on me. I see the angle that Hope Larson is going for, at least I think I do. This Barbara Gordon seems very rooted in a realistic set of problems. More than ever we see her without that Batgirl Suit, and see that like most people she has a million things on her to do list. I don’t know if me just not being into the whole millennial culture that why it’s hard for me to get into this book. The way the characters are drawn seems very…hipster, and the big bad right now is using apps to be evil. So yes, I definitely feel Hope Larson is bringing Batgirl the 21st century. It may not be my style or taste but I also know it’s really trendy so it’ll be interesting how the book does going further.
