Batgirl vs. Catwoman
Another Batman anthology series, this one in the style of Legends of the Dark Knight, in which a new creative team would come on every few months to tell their own stand-alone arc, Confidential produced both good and bad, but my choice of splash comes from what I believed at the time (I guess I still do) should be the formula for a Barbara Gordon Batgirl comic. It was funny, well illustrated, and didn't remove Oracle from the DCU. It was just a fun flashback story going back to Barb's Batgirl career. After all, if Batman can have series dedicated to his "Year 1", why can't other heroes' adventures take place in the recent past instead of the present? Sadly, that's not what we got.
