Overview

Three years ago, the Joker took everything from Barbara Gordon. Now he wants more. Returning to Gotham City after a long absence, the Clown Prince of Crime is out to free Batman from his closest allies-his “family.” He targets Batgirl, putting Barbara face-to-face with her worst nightmare: the man who put her in a wheelchair.

But the attack on her and her fellow Bat-heroes is only the beginning of Batgirl’s family problems. Her mother - newly returned after more than a decade of estrangement - has been captured. Her father has been poisoned. And her brother, psychopathic Arkham Asylum escapee, may actually be working with the Joker. Can Batgirl save the lives of the people she is closest to from the two maniacs who have hurt her most?

BATGIRL: DEATH OF THE FAMILY is a searing tale of the blood ties that bind, from writers Gail Simone (SECRET SIX) and Ray Fawkes (CONSTANTINE) and artists Daniel Sampere (TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA) and Ed Benes (BIRDS OF PREY). Collects BATGIRL #14-19, BATGIRL ANNUAL #1 and BATMAN #17.

    Continuing a great story arc

    I've truly enjoyed the Batgirl series since the New 52 starting line. Gail Simone writes Barbara Gordon as witty, intelligent, and human. The Batgirl line is well worth buying if you are an experienced comic book reader or if you're just looking to get started.

    A great comic

    This will keep you geeking out hours after you're done reading it. Great writing, great art, and several well done twists. I loved every page and I can't wait for the next installment. DC does not have an incredible record for female empowerment in their lines, but Batgirl is a wonderful exception. She is a great example of how a woman can be strong, independent, and smart without falling into the trap of overly masculine. She is vulnerable, sensitive, and scared without falling into the trap of being a damsel in distress.

    One of the Best Writers

    Of all the comic book superhero characters, Batgirl is second only to Batman.
