I’m excited for the new Batgirl. I wasn’t into the New 52, with the exception of a couple of titles I’ve been following in trade, but I’ve been reading Batman Eternal and I am interested in reading more. Now I’ve put Batgirl and Catwoman on my hold list, starting with issues 35. But one thing keeps nagging at me.
In the promotional art for the new Batgirl there’s a design page and a note about the her saying ‘LEATHER JACKET NOT SPANDEX!’ It captions a picture comparing two images of her jacket. The one that highlights her breasts has a red ‘x’ beside it. No plans to go that way.
I’ve seen this before. Ten years ago Darwyn Cooke did a fantastic job of redesigning Catwoman’s costume. It too was leather and did a great job of balancing the character’s sexiness and the practical needs of a cat burglar. Then Adam Hughes got a hold of it. He half unzipped the top and most artists haven’t found a way to zip it back up again.
Now I know Barbara isn’t Selina, but it’s been nagging at me.
No one is more excited about Batgirl’s new costume than Kara.

So today Marvel announced a new Thor on The View. Which makes sense because this Thor will be a woman as you can see the artwork below. And this is really Thor by which that means the person with the hammer is Thor and woman will have the hammer.
But the reveal of the new title, written by Jason…
Batgirl (of Burnside)
Drew the new Batgirl. I heart this character so much.
