I have the issue where she's crippled and then years later she shows up in Birds of Prey as Oracle. I'm sure it's in a Batman comic, but which one?

Thanks

Well Barbara Gordon appears post-Killing Joke in Suicide Squad comics. I haven't read these, but I don't think these comics are the origina and first app of Oracle. I have no idea actually. I don't recall any price guide ever saying either.

I can't say for certain, but I think it was in Suicide Squad. Someone more knowledgable about DC in the late 80's should know for sure.

*EDIT.* Damn. Beaten at the wire.

I have a friend that lives out in Florida now and she's the biggest Oracle/BOP fan but my phone is broken beyond all reason, so I can't call her. I bet she knows though.

i know of at least two.

a two parter that was catwoman and batgirl.

and another that i'm not sure about. Still trying to track all these down myself. I just got the last issue I needed to have the complete run of the monthly a few weeks ago.

Birds of Prey, Manhunt, wolves, birds of prey batgirl. That's all I can think of. Most of them are one shots except Manhunt.
