“One thing that was always really interesting to me is, how does Batgirl deal with Commissioner Gordon?He’s this helicopter dad who’s also a teacher at her school so she cannot get away from this guy,” writer Shea Fontana says of “With this book, I wanted to explore how those relationships change during our teenage years.“Catwoman can go from something like the current run (which is amazing but obviously very mature) to being in something like this, where it’s about figuring out who she is at 16.
Joining keyboardist Brent Mydland -- who would tragically pass away a year later -- for a handful of songs each night was part-time contributor Bruce Hornsby on accordion.

When we’re kids we have this attitude that our parents belong to us, that they don’t have a life outside what we see them doing. So this is the moment in Batgirl’s life where we see her realizing that maybe her dad would want to go on a date or have a girlfriend.
Then she takes this to the extreme, and instead of letting poor Commissioner Gordon make his own decisions about his life, she decides she’s going to set him up on a date, which of course goes terribly wrong.” “I love the Gordon and Batgirl relationship,” adds artist Yancey Labat, who has two young daughters of his own. Just talking to my oldest daughter right now, it’s amazing how much more mature kids are these days than when I was younger, with the questions she asks.
