I intended to have this more polished, but after all the feeling unwell lately, I feel as though I’ve lost my strength a little. Here it is nonetheless - Batgirl sporting her great new design, whilst holding part of her previous costume nostalgically, as a nod to gailsimone’s run which officially ended this past week. Excited for what’s coming, yet I want to mention that I love what Gail did with Babs, and all the other characters (especially Alysia); her work has inspired many people and it will be missed!
Also want to say that I wish all good things to the new team; I can’t wait to pick up their first issue!
I’m now officially working mostly on comics and I am blessed enough to have joined the Bat Team! After doing a cover (above) for Batgirl #37 a couple months ago, I just worked on the complete issue Batgirl: Endgame and it was just too much fun. More Batgirl to come soon, and more comics in general!
“It’s incredible. I mean, more than anything, it’s validating because this was sort of a controversial way to handle it and change it, and change it from something that was fairly dark and somber and take it 180 degrees the other direction to make it light,” Stewart said. “I think we were all confident it was going to get a good response, but I think we thought maybe it would get more like a golf clap like an ‘Oh, very good, very nice,’ but instead it’s been this tidal wave of support, and it’s incredibly validating.”
The past few weeks have brought some truly surprising and exciting announcements from the Batman corner of the DC Universe, but this one tops them all. Today it was announced that Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher will take over as new writers on Batgirl, with Stewart providing covers and layouts for new comics artist Babs Tarr.
Any one of those creators alone would be a pretty big deal deal, but while Stewart and Fletcher are intriguing choices for the adventures of Barbara Gordon, the biggest news by far is Tarr, an illustrator and video game artist best known to ComicsAlliance readers for her incredible cosplay-inspiring art and frequent appearances in the Best Art Ever (This Week) feature. This is a move that we never saw coming, but one we’re completely in favor of.
