Batgirl Gets New Creative Team in October

Well, well, well, who could have seen this one coming?

Coming this October, Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher will be taking over writing duties on Batgirl with newcomer artist Babs Tarr handling all the pretty pictures. Along with an all new style and ooh for Babs, which is definitely unique as Didio pointed out, the book will now feature a lighter tone, which is something that I and many others will certainly welcome.

Check out the interview with Stewart and Fletcher at MTV for all the info and some more art/designs.  And yes, I'll be picking this one back up in October.

Also, I'm really not one to gloat. Even though I pretty much figured this out, it was a team effort and I've got to give credit to Gotham Spoilers commenter Hellion for tipping me off to a few things, and would like to acknowledge Twitter user/follower @Yasminamdi, who figured out the artist beforehand, but as you can see, I was a bit skeptical. So congrats guys, great team effort!

  1. I like that the artist is named "Babs," which reminds me of seeing "Grayson" credited on Nightwing issues written by Devin Grayson. The new costume looks spiffy and the tone change sounds great. The one thing I don't love are the cartilage piercings you can see in Barbara's ear in that picture. I know it's a little thing, but it doesn't feel very "Barbara Gordon." It seems more like a teenage girl thing and less like a former (?) librarian sort of look. No matter. I'll be reading it anyway; that's not enough to push me away.

  2. Glad I could help! :P This looks awesome.

    Jesus though, Mark Doyle really isn't playing any games, is he? Gotham's true savior!

  3. I was looking forward to those Birds of Prey rumors being true.
    Oh well. The art looks nice, but my only issue is that she looks like a teenager and isn't she supposed to be an adult by now?
