‘BATGIRL’ TO BECOME BEST POSSIBLE DC COMIC WITH NEW CREATORS CAMERON STEWART, BABS TARR AND BRENDEN FLETCHER
By Chris Sims
The past few weeks have brought some truly surprising and exciting announcements from the Batman corner of the DC Universe, but this one tops them all. Today it was announced that Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher will take over as new writers on Batgirl, with Stewart providing covers and layouts for new comics artist Babs Tarr.
Any one of those creators alone would be a pretty big deal deal, but while Stewart and Fletcher are intriguing choices for the adventures of Barbara Gordon, the biggest news by far is Tarr, an illustrator and video game artist best known to ComicsAlliance readers for her incredible cosplay-inspiring art and frequent appearances in the Best Art Ever (This Week) feature. This is a move that we never saw coming, but one we’re completely in favor of.
I know I’m hardly the first to say this, but this costume is fucking great.
Brenden is co-writing GOTHAM ACADEMY, and after crashing him and Cameron’s writing meetings, and watching this come together for a few months, let me just say that this book is going to steal your hearts. I for one can’t wait to read it!
Holy Manbat, Batman! My horror cover to Detective Comics #35 :D
