There’s no time to catch your breath after last issue’s shocking ending as an emotionally unstable Batgirl must confront one of Batman’s most violent foes: The Ventriloquist!
Trent's Rating

Not some of Simone's best work. It's still good, but suffers from overly simplistic plot devices. The plot needs to meet the art at the level of maturity. Gore doesn't always mean a mature story. The best "BAT" books leave the reader with a palm slap to the forehead, as the detective solves the mystery, not as the detective narrates the deus ex machine/on the nose solution.

3.5 (of 5) Death Rays


  1. Wrong sir. Strong introduction to a mysterious and terrifying criminal. Simone is on fire with this and it's second part successor.

    1. I love the villain, and I love that they didn't explain everything about her and her powers. I didn't love the OVER narration. There are stronger ways to SHOW the audience and not TELL them. I still love it; I just felt... Simone is not running at full capacity.
