The Batgirl of Burnside

PN6728.B358 S74 2015

Volume 1 of 3 in the Batgirl series

Burnside - the coolest neighborhood in Gotham - is a hub for young artists, fashionistas and techies. And now, it is also home to Batgirl. As the newest resident of the city’s hippest zip code, Barbara has new roommates, a new school and a new costume. But as Batgirl’s popularity grows (along with her devoted online fan base), Burnside suddenly seems to have an excess of Batgirls. And one of these imposters is out to kill off the original.

Batman Noir

PN6728.B36 A98 2013

You've never seen the streets of Gotham City like this before! Bringing the same neo-noir flavor and grimy realism that have distinguished his work 100 BULLETS, artist Eduardo Risso, with writing from his frequent creative partner Brian Azzarello, stitches together gorgeous, brutal Batman tales that will haunt you long after you've finished reading.
