Obscene, vulgar, and over-the-top, “Prison Pit” Book Two continues the non-stop stream of violence that the first book began.

Batgirl #14

Supergirl stops by to visit with Batgirl and the dynamic duo take in a movie, fight some Draculas (yes, it is supposed to be plural) and have a pillow fight. Pretty standard fare for this series.
