Writer(s): Bryan Q. Miller

Storyline: Batgirl tracked a blood trail to Klarion the Witch-boy. He'd turned his cat familiar into a human-esque form in order to stop him from mating. Batgirl convinced him he had to let the cat "couple" so that it would stop trying to kill humans.
Klarion took her back to his world, where they stole another familiar and let them mate. The two went on a "date" in Gotham.

Storyline: Batgirl met with Detective Gage at a bank crime scene. Their speedster was at work, but little had been stolen at the three bank jobs. Proxy was able to get her in position for the next hit. The speedster (Slipstream) disappeared before he could kill her. Batgirl did, however, steal the can he'd been spraying on the money. Proxy figured out the spray - they planned to steal all the money at once.
Note: Oracle is "dead" at this point.
