Showcase Presents Batgirl

Batgirl was created in 1966 at the time of the Batman TV series. She was a better conceived character than the earlier Batgirl but the stories were rather silly. DC Stories of that time period are not a match for Marvel stories. Batgirl didn't have her own series so what we get is a series of guest appearances and a few back-up features. The sampling of DC titles where she appears include Detective Comics, Batman, World's Finest, Justice League of America, Brave and the Bold and Adventure Comics. Only Neal Adams is a cut above the rest. Gil Kane and Murphy Anderson are a dynamic team, Irv Novick is a solid craftsman. From 1969, the silly plots and super-villains disappear for the most part while we get crime stories.
Pour la prochaine fois je parlera de Batgirl Year One, la série de 2003.
