    1. HOW did I not have an Oracle OR Barbara Gordon shelf before? Arrrrgh. I'm pretty much a sucker for Chuck Dixon stories, so there's no objective review to be had here.


    2. One or two nice things here and there, but in the end a pretty disappointing read. The artwork has a lot of detail, but it's way too confusing, there's no order or balance, a lot of times I ended up staring at a page going "Wait, who's arm is that, what am I looking at, what just happened?" ESPECIALLY in the fight scenes, which I started to skip over in frustration after a while. When that happens, it's not "detailed artwork," it's a mess.And despite all the character development that was suppos [...]


    3. Cassandra's identity has been compromised, but Oracle might have a way to win it back. Batgirl bumps into the young Robin (Tim) who has been somewhat avoiding the newest addition to Batman's "family." Casandra is still overpowered with guilt. Barbara tries to talk her down, but Casandra is set on preparing for her fight with Shiva.


    4. Rather simplistic storyline with art that was fun but also very badly suited to action sequences as often the strained attempts at wild perspectives made pages hard to decipher.


    5. For those who aren't super familiar with the Batgirl mythology, it might be surprising to know that this isn't the usual Barbara Gordon Batgirl. I hadn't read any of the stories featuring Cassandra Cain before this one though I had read about her history. As a character, her being slow to speak (having only recently learned verbal communication after being trained entirely in silence) is a unique character trait and does nicely set her apart.Her showdown with Lady Shiva is very interesting, thou [...]


    6. Consider child abuse well beyond the norm: a girl is raised without speech to understand only motion, fighting, and violence. A girl is trained from the time she could stand to fight, to be an assassin. A girl whose father plays a lovely game of "two for flinching" with her, involving gunshot wounds. When she is eight years old, he tells her to kill. When she is eight years old, she obeys. She doesn't understand words, only body language, and she is made intimately familiar with death when she i [...]


    7. Out of the other volumes I've read with Cass Cain, this has to be my favorite. It had a nice balance between vignettes and story. Cass is still in an early stage of her new life compared to later events that I've already read. It was nice to see her and Stephanie are friends at this point in time. One of my favorite parts was the quick look into her life with Stephanie as she kept saying "read it" over and over again. This is when it's revealed that Cass cannot read, and Stephanie offers to help [...]


    8. 2000's Batgirl is the best. There's no other way to split it. Kelley Puckett's view and writing if this character is amazing. I miss this character so much. She was Damian before Damian was around. Don't get me started on the art. Damion Scott is a master. His style breath life into this story. The movements and fluid characters. There no static just life. He can draw like no other. The story was great too. I remember bits of it when I read the single issues. Regrading it in two days was amazing [...]


    9. The build on this story is so good. As many one-shots as there are from a basic story perspective, it all weaves together into this greater narrative of who Cassandra is and who she wants to be and the difficulty she and the rest of the Bats are having in getting there.This volume finally lets her meet up with Robin (Time Drake) and Spoiler (Stephanie Brown), and their reactions to her are wonderful. They take a sort of opposite track to working with her and getting to know her, and it feels ver [...]


    10. Kelly Puckett finally writes a full arc story combined from all the issues rather than small stories compiled together. Lady Shiva is back for her fight to the death, and Batgirl is keeping this from Oracle and Batman.The result is a poorly drawn fight scene that seems like it should be the most epic thing in the world but is drawn very messy.The artwork by Damion Scott definitely holds back the story. If you want to see a good fight scene laid out, check out Ryan Ottley and Corey Walker for the [...]


    11. Cassandra Cain was an interesting character when she first showed up in Batman: No Man’s Land. Her character had a ton of possibilities but as with most DC characters she was made too powerful. We witness that here as she finally has her showdown with Shiva. I do like the budding friendship with Spoiler as I think it works much better than with Barbara. The art is at times almost indecipherable. I understand that its stylized but during certain scenes its hard to tell what’s going on. Overal [...]


    12. This is more like a 2.5 stars, it's just not good enough for the full three. Unfortunately, these books don't stand the test of time. The story telling and the art are very dated. The story can be hard to follow at times, with how choppy it is, and the art is just awful so it makes everything even more confusing. But I did like the cameos from Robin and Spoiler. It's disappointing because I really want to get to know Cassandra better but these books are so below par.


    13. Not a big fan of the art here. It's a bit too chaotic, I guess? And the story with the man being executed was strange. I don't know if I just missed something, but I pretty much had no idea wth was going on there. She goes to all this trouble to break him out and then just puts him back? What? But, the rest was good, especially the part with Lady Shiva. She's always fun.


    14. Part of my massive Barbara Gordon Re-read which I had a glorious amazing time with. The art in the early Batgirl stuff was very touch and go to me, which made me wince a while reading through it, but I definitely appreciated the beginning of Cass' story, and Bab's involvement in that with Cass and with/against Bruce.


    15. This was another solid entry in the Cassandra Cain Batgirl series. It wasn't amazing on the whole, but there were amazing moments. We really delve into who Cassandra is and why she is the way she is.


    16. Getting over the she's not Barbra, I don't see anything compelling about Cassie in this set. This one isn't as well written as the previous volume. It's weird how she's always referred to as Batgirl rarely is her name used. I find Cassie is portrayed extremely flat for a former child assassin.


    17. I really liked this book. I knew of Cassandra Cain, but knew nothing really about her. This book didn't tell me everything I needed to know, but it made me want to read more. I found the artwork intriguing and enjoyed the tempo of the story. Hope to pick up more Cassandra Cain.


    18. This Graphic novel tore at my heart strings when it came to Batgirl's relationship with her father. the plot was excellent and the art was beautiful


    19. So the showdown with Shiva gave Batgirl a new lease on lifew what? I will be picking up the next volume ASAP.


    20. I found the art difficult to follow at times, although I loved the idea of a mute superhero. Her costume was great, but overall I didn't find the story that compelling.


    21. Short, sweet but fierce. An apt description of these Batgirl stories as well as the character herself. The story goes by very quickly but its a very nice ride. C+


    22. I really like the Cassandra Cain Batgirl, and I loved the art in this volume even though the blocky noir style isn't usually my jam. Beyond that, it's just sort of "Batgirl's daily grind" stuff.
