I haven't voted in the poll, as the options seem a bit odd. If the poll was just based on the quality of the book, fair enough, but I don't understand the need to hold Gail's work on Batgirl up against other DC writers. Besides, it's not even a level basis of comparison, given that DC has some very good writers and some not so good ones, so where's the level by which we're measuring Gail's writing on Batgirl?
There's only one writer who's work I can compare to Gail's on Batgirl. And that's Gail. And based on her previous work, I'd have to say that Batgirl is very much in the 'below average' category. To be fair, Gail's 'below average' is the equivalent of a fair few writer's average work, so I'm judging Batgirl by Gail's usually high standards . But 5 issues in and this book is still lacking the spark, the bite, the wit that I usually associate with Gail's work. It's all just been so flat, and bland and obvious in every aspect of the book, from the plotting to the characterisation to the dialogue.
It's not an awful book by any means... But it has been a consistently disappointing one since #1.
