Set in a parallel Batman Universe (I guess) where he's a fictional character and Babs is not Batgirl. But despite that, a good story about Bab's anger in her new wheelchair and learning to live with it, with a fun Batman-esque mystery thrown in (and obviously really great diversity). The timeline could have been clearer.

How did Jenna know so much about the experimental treatments, INCLUDING the code to the door? ( )

A young hacker meets a misfortune which puts her in a wheelchair. She struggles to come to terms with her new state in the Arkham Center for Independence. She gradually makes friends and adjusts. But something is peculiar about the Center and she is compelled to investigate. A competent story but I did wonder why the hero needed to be related to Commissioner Gordon and all his superhero baggage (which didn't appear at all in this comic). Maybe only superhero-related stuff can get published? ( )

This is the second teen-superhero graphic novel origin story I've read recently, and I'm guessing that some of the similarities are conventions of a genre that I'm not sufficiently familiar with.

I came out of this one angry, and it would not surprise me if that was Nijkamp's intention -- the secondary theme of the medical profession treating disabled people as non-people, as bodies to experiment on, is a particularly enraging one. It is not a story I particularly want to read, and yet I do over and over again.

The primary theme is coming of age and adapting to the new normal. Just for Barbara Gordon, this isn't just becoming an adult, but also becoming disabled, recovering from ptsd, and becoming a super-hero. And using their new found autonomy to solve crime.

The separation of child from parent is particularly stark in this story, because after the (disabling) injury that happens early in the story, Barbara is shipped off to a 'rehabilitation centre'. Not only is there the loss of their father, but also losses of friends made along the way, as people leave unexpectedly. ( )

Barbara “Babs” Gordon is a skilled computer hacker and an ally to Batman. One day as she and best friend, Benjamin attempt to intervene in a robbery, Babs is shot.
Jump ahead six weeks later, to meet the newly paralyzed Babs reluctantly rolling into the Arkham Center for Independence, where teens with disabilities undergo physical and emotional rehabilitation. Despite her father’s well-meaning advice, Babs resents being there. The mysterious cries within the mansion’s walls only add to her despondence—until Jena, a burn survivor full of haunting tales, disappears.
Aided by supportive patients Yeong and Issy, whom she gradually befriends, Babs must accept her new reality in order to find Jena and escape a sinister plot.

Spunky Babs almost realistically addresses her challenges, such as mastering wheelchair ramps and negotiating stairs. Babs’ increasing self-confidence is heartening, and the message that people with disabilities don’t need to be “fixed” in order to thrive to me seemed forced and heavy-handed.

Balancing bright and dark colors, The illustrations vividly convey Babs’ anger and determination, incorporating a jigsaw-puzzle motif. Possibly this reflects Babs’ quest to piece together her new identity as well as the institution’s secret. Most characters present white. Yeong, who walks with forearm crutches, is cued through her name as Korean; Issy, who uses a wheelchair, presents black.
A quick read for a disability-positive superhero origin story. (Graphic fantasy. 12-16) ( )

Barbara Gordon is in therapy and rehabilitation treatment after she is shot. Babs is navigating the new center and meeting everyone, but something seems off. Jena tried to comfort Babs by telling stories. BUT are the stories a piece of fiction? Are pieces of the puzzle within this place missing? Where is Jena’s brother, Michael?

Enjoyable graphic novel mystery read. ( )
