Batgirl: Destruction’s Daughter

Batgirl: Destruction’s Daughter 

By Andersen Gabrych & various (DC Comics)
ISBN 1-84576-327-0

The adventures of this particular incarnation of Batgirl (Cassandra Cain, daughter of the world’s deadliest assassin, full face mask – post No Man’s Land – if you’re keeping count) conclude with a martial arts and parental-angst ridden melee as the reading impaired super-heroine goes on a quest to discover her mother’s identity only to fall in, and afoul of, the daughter of Batman’s greatest foe and a somewhat unimpressive new League of Assassins.

Muddled and slapdash, this story (comprising Batgirl #65-73) feels as if it was axed half way through, and as the comic was cancelled with that 73rd issue that may well be the case.

For completists only, I fear.
