The Annual has two stories, the first being a team-up with the rebirthed Supergirl (which leads into a Supergirl story in her own title), and the second, a sort of flashbacky story, bridging the New 52 and the Rebirth series.
The main story is a well-written and illustrated one, which, basically, takes Barbara and Batgirl back to Burnside (which is suffering from Hipsters and gentrification), a new computer-based villain, and much supporting character character-related activity (but with plenty of Batgirl-related activity mixed in).
This is a very good Batgirl volume, which keeps well within the bounds of her abilities and her milieu. That’s not meant to be patronising, it just means that Kyryptonian villains don’t have any good reason to go to Burnside, nor alien interdimensional invaders, either. The Penguin is on hand though.
This is a good, solid comic-book story that is suitable for young girls and old boys alike.
