DC Comics have confirmed that titles Batgirl, Batman & the Outsiders, and Justice League Odyssey are set to end in October of this year. Batgirl #50 and Justice League Odyssey #25 will end on ‘milestone’ issue numbers, in comics parlance.
Here’s what the DC solicitations are saying about these issues:
All good things must come to an end, as we wrap up this run of Batgirl with one final oversized celebratory issue!
In the aftermath of “The Joker War”, Gotham is left in pieces that need to be picked up by Barbara and Alejo’s team – but is Gotham a city worth saving anymore, and how much longer does our girl have it in her to keeping fighting for it as Batgirl?
Then, if Barbara is to ever give her relationship with Jason a chance, she knows she has to face him and finally make amends with the act that crippled him.
Series writer Cecil Castellucci will finish the Batgirl series with a bigger 48 page issue, and the broader team will be made up by artists Emanuela Lupacchino, Marguerite Sauvage, and Aneke.
