Batgirl Annual #3 Apparently Features Everybody

We knew that Dick Grayson and Spyral were to be a part of the Batgirl Annual coming later this month, along with Gotham Academy, whose story will be illustrated by Mingle Helen Chen, but that's not all.

On top of that, there will also be a Spoiler section of the story illustrated by David LaFuente... and then a Batwoman section illustrated by Ming Doyle. Why? Who knows! Neither of these characters have been elements of the book prior to this, maybe it's a sign of things to come?

  1. The person on Brenden Fletcher's Twitter a) whining that Harper Row isn't in the issue and then b) whining again and dismissing Brenden's perfectly reasonable explanation is ridiculous.

    1. Excuse me? I'm not whining, you ignorant! In fact, Brenden Fletcher is one of my favorite writers. I always tell him that and always support him! I read all his books. I'm just sad that Harper, my favorite character and the reason I started reading comics won't be there. Steph is already gonna appear in Catwoman, and now she'll appear in Batgirl. Why not use Harper instead. That was my point, so get your facts straight!

    2. To be fair, "why not just use x instead of y" is a poor way to reason the situation, it implies the characters are interchangeable, which they're not, or at least shouldn't be. Wouldn't you rather have a story that was intended for the character you like to begin with, rather than having them shoehorned into a story meant for someone else? Spoiler was the character Fletcher and Stewart wanted to use, and I can only assume they wrote the story accordingly.
