CALLED IT: JOE QUINONES DRAWS FIRST BLOOD IN ROBIN ’66 AND BATGIRL’S MULTIVERSAL SELFIE WAR
By Chris Sims
If you’ve been paying attention to our deep and abiding love for both the concept of superhero selfies and the new Batgirl costume from the upcoming team of Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr, then you may have already seen our fully official pitch stupid tweet about Batgirl and Robin engaging in an Interdimensional Selfie War. Inspired by Joe Quinones’s amazing cover for an upcoming issue of Batman ’66, our own editor Andy Khouri suggested that this could be the start of the 1966 version of Dick Grayson sending pix to 2014′s Batgirl, with each trying to one-up the other.
Now, it is happening — at least in the world of fan art. Today, Quinones posted another great piece, this time of the Batgirl of Burnside receiving the picture from Robin — which, in case you forgot, he actually took with A ROTARY TELEPHONE — kicking off the Crisis On Infinite Selfies for real. And not only that, but it seems like the Joker from Batman ’89 — or at least his satin-jacketed henchmen — are getting involved too.
This is, without question, the greatest crossover event of the summer.
