Bette Kane: The Forgotten Batgirl

The character has had some changes since her first incarnation to be sure. Before Barbara Gordon entered the picture there was a blonde that became the first Batgirl. Or rather Bat-Girl. Here's a rundown on her character, the Kanes and wondering where she can go from here.

Christmas Specials

Batgirl #35 ten page preview

I know they said these are uncorrected pages but certain things bug me about this. So these are my thoughts on what's shown.

SPOILERS and fury below.

DC Collectibles: Red Hood

There have been three Jason Todd related figures before and for some reason none of them were based on one of the characters ongoing looks. Just brief storylines and only one of which was actually a Red Hood costume. Now we FINALLY have one that fits but was it worth the wait?
