Who is Batgirl?
Stephanie Brown has a lot to prove. She's fought crime as The Spoiler, and partnered with Batman as Robin, but now she's assumed an even bolder indentiy that has caught all of Gotham's attention...
A typical college freshman by day, Stephanie takes to the streets at night, seeking out danger as the new Batgirl. But her nocturnal adventures have attracted the Gotham underworld's gunfire, and even Batman and Robin don't know what to make of this new vigilante in a secondhand costume.
With the support and guidance of the original Batgirl, Barbara Gordon, Stephanie must learn the difference between playing dress-up and being the new Batgirl
Batgirl Rising is written by Bryan Q. Miller (TV's Smallville) and features art by Lee Garbett (The Outsiders) and Trevort Scott.

Batgirl: Batgirl Rising, by Bryan Q. Miller and Lee Garbett (DC Comics; 176 pages; $17.99)
Grant Morrison has been doing some wild and crazy things in Gotham City with Bruce Wayne and the other Bat-characters. But a funny thing happened along the way to Batman time-traveling back from the dead: Stephanie Brown, the onetime Spoiler and now Batgirl, became one of Gotham's most interesting residents. Deftly penned by Bryan Q. Miller, Stephanie (who also "died" for a time) lives at home, goes to college during the day, gets schooled nightly in the art of superheroism (under the watchful eyes of Oracle), and is a complex character many readers can relate to in the DC Universe."
