Some thoughts about Batman: Prelude to the Wedding: Batgirl Vs. Riddler #1
The Riddler is challenging Batgirl to figure out the biggest riddle he is facing: Is he able to find love?
This also worked quite well thankfully.
Tim Seeley offers another tie-in focusing on classic Batman characters in a way that makes sense. The whole premise of Barbara being the one who faces Riddler is pretty logical considering that both are characters who are known by their intellect and the writer manages to create interesting riddles for the heroine to descipher before the inevitable final battle.
That is where things get actually interesting though since Seeley implements the premise of the wedding to create an understandable dilemma for Riddler while also connecting him to Barbara in a much more personal way, one that gets a solid and appropriate resolution towards the end for both. It really makes the Riddler a bit more complex than usual.
Minkyu Jung handles the art and is really solid thanks to the expressive characters and precise storytelling.
Good read as usual, still the best thing from the whole wedding story.
