A little something for @batgirlincorporated ! I was supporting them from the very beginning and I just wanted to draw another little thing to show them my support as I still love these girls with such passion!
I am extremely disappointed in DC Comics in how they’ve handled the Batgirl mantle and what they’ve done to Barbara Gordon, Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain, especially in the reboot with the gutting of character growth and strong female relationships in exchange for a shaky and entirely unremarkable “new” Barbara Gordon Batgirl. Also an offense is their clear absolute refusal to try to appeal to the young adult demographic, especially girls.
And while they’ve improved in some respects as to tapping into certain demographic, their usage of animation, the success of Young Justice and the Green Lantern Corps animated series on the new DC Nation block show a step in the right direction but I need more.
All-together it’s driven me crazy to the point where an idea sprung in my head with a pretty clear vision and now I want to make something that can show how equally awesome all three(ish ohohoho) Batgirls are in a zany, colorful, and fun self contained canon that draws upon past stories and concepts and presents them in a new fashion, much like what they’ve done with Young Justice.
The comic/series, which I’ve considered calling Batgirl Inc. that I’d want to write would be more at it’s heart a pitch for a cartoon series in comic form, that would have all three Batgirls as a team fighting crime in Gotham, all around the same age (more or less teenage) in a series inspired by Charlie’s Angels and Powerpuff Girls co-starring Tim Drake-Wayne as their tech guy and “Alfred” alongside Barbara’s sentient AI computer; Oracle. Batwoman, Huntress, Flamebird and Misfit would also be featured. The goal is to have an almost all female cast care for perhaps the cameo of Nightwing and Damian Robin.
What even is anatomy? The legs (lack of legs) are evidence enough I could not do this comic on my own but hey, fanart! Threw some color on it so you could tell who they were. So yeah mangled Batgirls. That is however, yes, a geometric zebra-print and fringe dress on Stephanie. It was $9.98.
Here’s a portrait of our INC version for everyone to celebrate~ I’ve been doing some crayon+digital work on my own so I thought I’d do one for Cass since it is her debut month. While I suck at comic art and usually stick to the writing side; I do like to do portraits! Enjoy guys, we’ll be back soon, the rest of the issue is entirely Cass so please hang in there! :)
