Beware the Midnight Man in ‘Batgirl’ #30
Batgirl’s our kind of lady: she’s a librarian, a computer nerd, an MMA fighter, a redhead, and she prefers to wear skintight leather. So you’re really talking about a go-getter with huge brains and a willingness to embrace the weird: the total package.
Writer Marguerite Bennett sets us up with a nice exploration of a different part of Gotham: its paranormal side. (Or is it? We can’t tell. Our phone doesn’t have one of those fancy EMF readers that all the hip kids are using to detect threats these days.) And Robert Gill draws her vision with excellent composition, and some nice three-point perspective. Ain’t it keen to watch a talent at work? Batgirl #30 gives you not one, but two here. Bring that tally up to three with an explosive cover by Clay Mann, which is not the name of a Gotham supervillain, but a masterful artist. Veteran colorist Paul Mounts makes it all pop.
Oh, that’s not enough for you? Well excuuuuuse us. Have a variant cover by MAD artist Rick Tulka. There. Now you have nothing to complain about. But if you do…the Midnight Man will getcha.
Yo. We interviewed Mike Mignola on Hellboy’s 20th Anniversary and it was great, so you should read that like, five minutes ago.
