STUNNING!  These practical superheroine redesigns by Meredith McClaren are just to die for. I love how fashionable they are, how much they take into consideration the real world, there’s a practicality and function that is nevertheless completely badass. They’re also so far away from “basic catsuit” type stuff that it all feels so damn new and fresh!I mean…Look at that freaking Zatanna! I’ve never seen anything like that!

AND, you’ll be able to buy the original line art for some of these as she releases rewards this week for her AWESOME KICKSTARTER…although you guys are going to have to fight me for that Catwoman.

BAT GIRLS CLUB  { a television series focusing on the female bat proteges

Led by Barbara Gordon working as the Oracle, the series focuses on the five female proteges of the Bat as they train together, fight together, hang together, & grow together. Harper Row as BlueBird, Stephanie Brown as Spoiler, Cass Cain as BlackBat, & Carrie Kelly as Robin. It’s like the Bad Girls Club but 5000 times better. [ in relation to ]

According to this, Jaime Hernandez inspired Frank Miller when creating Carrie Kelly (Robin in The Dark Knight Returns). John Bryne, encouraging the idea of a female Robin, showed Miller this drawing of Maggie from a 1982 issue of The Comics Journal.

EVERYONE SHUT UP, ROBIN CARRIE KELLY’S GOING TO BE ON ‘TEEN TITANS GO’ NEXT WEEK 

By Chris Sims

Listen, it’s hard for me to get excited when comic book characters I love show up in mass media. I mean, I saw a movie this summer that just threw a hundred foot-tall, Jack Kirby-designed Exitar the Exterminator into a cameo for giggles, so just hearing a name that I recognize isn’t enough anymore. In other words, I’m jaded as heck. Or at least I thought I was, until I found out that Carrie Kelly is going to show up in next week’s episode of Teen Titans Go! and promptly lost my sugar.

If you’ve been following the show, and you should be, you may have notice that the Titans are actually pretty lazy and very rarely do any actual crimefighting, which is probably why Robin has another team made entirely of Robins.

In case you don’t recognize them on site, here’s a quick rundown of the Robins of Team Robin: Carrie Kelly is, of course, the Robin seen in Frank Miller’s classic The Dark Knight Returns. She’s a fan favorite for a lot of reasons, including a) those slick green glasses, and b) being the first female Robin in the character’s long history. In the red costume, we have a Robin based on Tim Drake’s pre-New 52 costume, albeit one that seems a bit moodier than Tim ever was. With the perfectly rounded hair and pixie boots, we have Silver Age Robin, who was of course, Dick Grayson, who was on a team with Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg and Raven, and who grew up to be Nightwing, just like Regular Robin.

It’s best not to think about it too hard. It’s worth noting, however, that all four Robins are voiced by Scott Menville.
