batgirl-2012-46-spoiler

Despite the issue’s cover Batgirl #46 doesn’t quite give us the Batgirl and Spoiler team-up we were hoping for.

Still, for at least a few panels we get to see the woman who should be Batgirl fight along side of the woman who is Batgirl.

Taking place an indeterminate amount of time following DK2, Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello team-up with artist Andy Kubert for the first issue of… well, something. Far removed from The Dark Knight Returns, Dark Knight III: The Master Race may play in the expanded universe created by Frank Miller’s original mini-series but the magic of the original (at least from what we see in this first issue) is nowhere to be found.
