I'll hate if that happens cause he's a cool character who can add a lot to Batgirl's title...but there's a picture of the "Batgirl Wanted" arch which is really concerning me. Plus, writers do have the habit of creating nice characters just to make the main characters get attached to them and then lose them. I hope Simone will do better than that :(
Personally, the only thing I may dislike is that I wish it was given more time to work on Babs relationship with Ricky. (even as a friendship, I feel like it's good stuff that doesn't get a lot of time to be developed)
I have to say I'm falling for Ricky...he's a good guy who's trying to be on the right track...plus, I liked the way they worked together in KightFall's arc. He truly likes and admires Batgirl and I trust Simone to give him a bigger role in her crime fighting life.
Let's see how things are gonna go. According to issue #20 they'd have a date...hehe
