Batman, and all the men, of Gotham City have a bad case of the "manfluenza," but can Batgirl and the Birds of Prey deliver the cure in the form of some serious butt-kicking?

First Batgirl, Harley, and Batwoman must escape the clutches of the villainous Patient Zero and her Daughters of Gotham in the new comic, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #17. Published by DC Comics and available this Wednesday, the issue is the finale to the three-part 'Manslaughter' arc in which Patient Zero has targeted the city's men with a strange plague.

Hoping to thwart the illness before it kills off man-kind and spreads beyond Gotham City borders, Batgirl enlisted some help in the form of Ivy, Catwoman, and Wonder Woman before she was captured last issue. Now she's being treated to a good old-fashioned villain monologue where PZ explains her motives and history.

You can learn about it too in the SYFY WIRE exclusive preview of the issue below.

Written by Shawna and Julie Benson with art by Roge Antonio, cover by Yanick Paquette and a variant cover by Kamome Shirahama, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #17 will be available on December 13.
