First Look: Batgirl #44

Article by Steve J. Ray

Last month’s Batgirl #43 shook the foundations of reality and read more like a Dungeons & Dragons Source-book than an issue of a superhero comic-book. Here be dragons! Now DC have given us a sneak peek of next week’s Batgirl #44, and they’re not dragon their heels with bringing the heat… this book’s on fire!


Check out the press release and super cool (hot?) preview art:

Batgirl #44: “Dragons Beget Dragons”

Continuing where Cecil Castellucci, Cian Tormey and Chris Sotomayor left off with “Graveyards of Words and Bones” last month in Batgirl #43, everything in the magical realm of Unearth only exists when The Maker writes it onto his pages. So when he writes a dragon into existence that feeds upon the fear from new love, Jason Bard’s feelings for Babs feeds the fire-breathing dragon!

How can Batgirl have the courage to defeat such a dragon when courage itself is full of fear, but choosing to act in the presence of it regardless? And when you die in Unearth, do you die on Earth?

Batgirl #44, by Cecil Castellucci, Cian Tormey, and Chris Sotomayor, packed with high-fantasy medieval crimes (and a DRAGON!), hits shelves next Wednesday February 26th
