Batgirl Special

    (DC, 1988)
™ and © 1988 DC Comics

This one–shot tells the story of Barbara Gordon’s last case as Batgirl. Written by Barbara Kesel (Hawk and Dove) and drawn by Barry Kitson (The Flash & Green Lantern: The Brave and the Bold, JLA: Year One), this tale finds Barbara questioning her effectiveness and satisfaction with her Batgirl persona. It has been four years after nearly dying at the hands of the assassin Cormorant and a string of murders requires her attention.

“The Last Batgirl Story” takes place just prior to Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s Batman: The Killing Joke, the Prestige Format special that changed Barbara’s life forever.
