DC's Rebirth event has snagged some fantastic creative teams for its relaunched monthly and twice-monthly titles, and Batgirl #1 may be one of the best.  Enlisting the writing skills of acclaimed illustrator and best-selling graphic novelist Hope Larson (Chiggers, Compass South) and pairing her with stellar artist Rafael Albuquerque (Blue Beetle, Batman/Superman), DC has fortified its ongoing reimagining of Batgirl with formidable talent.  In July's Batgirl Rebirth #1, young Barbara Gordon bolts out of Burnside and takes off on a vision quest to Asia, where she embarks on a voyage of self-discovery and enlightenment, with some inevitable rough stuff along the way.

Here's the official solicitation synopsis:

“Beyond Burnside” Chapter One: The Batgirl you know and love is going global with Eisner Award-winning and New York Times best-selling writer Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time, Goldie Vance) and all-star artist Rafael Albuquerque (AMERICAN VAMPIRE). In order to up her game, Babs travels to Japan on a quest to train with the most elite modern combat masters of the East. But when a chance meeting with an old friend puts a target on her back, Batgirl may need to use her new skills to solve a deadly mystery.

Are you a Batgirl fan and will you join her on this soul-searching odyssey when Batgirl #1 hits shelves July 27?
