Batgirl day

While other comic-book shops are celebrating Batman Day, Oak Cliff is all about Batgirl.

The celebration, from 11 a.m.-8 p.m., includes Batgirl stickers and masks as well as a limited-edition Batgirl print by author and artist Sina Grace. Don’t forget to stop by Steve Hunter’s Batgirl mural while you’re there.
