Batman: No Man’s Land
Detective Comics
(1937-2011) #734

"Nobody move."

Since Bruce made it clear he won’t allow Cassandra to handle her father directly, she decides to go for his current buyer and handle Bruce’s “problem” for herself.

She does this in some pretty awesome but understated urban attire that will be harkened back to in her own series quite a few times. This isn’t Batgirl Cassandra Cain, this is a rogue agent handling the streets her own way. And it’s enough to worry Two-Face with a threat and a glare.

Okay, see now what I don’t get is people who say they love Babs’ redesign because “finally a practical female costume in comics!!”

Because it’s absolutely true that impractical costumes are a problem that plague superheroines, but this is what Babs’ New 52 costume looked like before they redesigned it:

I’m purposefully using a picture that has her next to Batman - her costume was just as “practical” as his. Full body suit, sturdy-looking flat-heeled boots, no unnecessary details beyond the Bat symbol and cape (both of which Batman has too) - what exactly was so “impractical” about this?

For that matter, this is what Babs’ original Batgirl costume looked like:

image

That’s from the 1970’s, and her costume looks as practical as can be. Actually, I’d argue that Dick’s the one with the impractical costume, here.

So why are we acting like this is such a big deal that Babs “finally” has a practical costume?! She’s had one since practically the very beginning (once they stopped drawing her original costume with high heels, anyway).

Superheroine costumes are certainly lacking practicality on the whole, but Babs was never really an issue there. So giving her a practical redesign doesn’t really do anything to change the status quo - it just “fixes” what wasn’t broken to start with. Why not give Starfire a redesign where I don’t have to wonder how her top stays on, instead?

Cassandra Cain Redesignfest
“You can change. You can.”
Barbara Gordon. Selina Kyle. Kate Kane. Bette Kane. Leslie Thompkins. Helena Wayne. Harper Row. Strix. Carrie Kelley. Stephanie Brown. Julia Pennyworth. Onyx. Helena Bertinelli. The New 52 has seen both the debut and the return of nearly every woman to ever be a part of the Batman legacy.
Excepting, of course, Cassandra Cain. And between the new Barbara Gordon Batgirl redesign that’s been doing the rounds and Stephanie Brown’s stylish new Spoiler duds, well. Cassandra’s had some pretty great costumes over the years. But it’s about time a certain former Batgirl got her own snazzy new redesign, isn’t it?
So here’s the deal. Batgirl. Black Bat. A new identity entirely. Steampunk, futuristic, noir, medieval, alternate universe, New 52, whatever you want - the only rules? It must be Cassandra Cain. And it must be a redesign.
All entries will be reblogged to inthenameofcassandracain. Entries may be submitted, or posted under the #casscainredesigns tag. Existing redesigns are absolutely welcome and encouraged.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s show Cass some love!

Becky Cloonan Draws the “new” Batgirl Not Wearing her New Costume

dcwomenkickingass:

In case you missed it, DC Comics announced a new look and new team for Batgirl this week. One of the cowriters of the book Brenden Fletcher is also co-writing Gotham Academy with Becky Cloonan.

Cloonan, the first woman to draw an issue of Batman, just tweeted out her take on Batgirl. I’ve notice that many of the concerns about the refreshed look of the character is that she looks so young. I confirmed with Brenden that the character is still 21, the age she was reset too during the new 52 launch. I think in Cloonan’s piece below she looks that age. 

image

I actually don’t think the Babs Tarr and Cameron Stewart pieces look that far off from 21 either. 

Very few comic artists are able to draw young women that look, well, appropriately young. Take a look at the eyesore cover where Wonder Girl  is supposed to be in her teens (actually let me save your eyes - don’t look). 

The style of art matters as well. I’ve been spending time rereading Cass Cain’s run as Batgirl and there were some points where both Cass and Barbara looked the same age due to the artwork.

There is an incredible amount of artwork that has shown up on my dash over the last few days featuring Batgirl’s new look. Most of it is being curated at the Batgirl of Burnside Tumblr set up by Cameron Stewart.

If you haven’t, go take a look.

Experimented with different brushes and style :D I tend to fixate on rendering, but this time I tried to capture the feel of the piece in swift moves. 
… also went a bit out of control with the colours lalalalalala
