Batgirl!

I don't have much to say this Wednesday (been really busy!), but this is the beginning of something new. I like comics and like a lot of people I really like the Batman comics. I love the idea that Batman's made this surrogate family for him by way of his team..and one of my favorite not-Batman characters is Batgirl. I dunno why, but I've always liked her, the job role the various Batgirls have filled through the years.

A few years ago, an artist posted his idea for a rejected Elseworlds (basically DC's version of What If...?)  comic that had a pretty cool Batgirl design. Within a few days lots of other artists jumped in and posted their version of Batgirl..some traditional, some very unconventional. Being a huge Batgirl dork, I saved a shit-ton of the pictures and now I'll share some with you all from time to time. This is one of my favorite pictures...it's just so fantastic!


The only thing I didn't really like was the blond hair..it looks really good, but I dunno. At the time it just didn't do it for me. But I rectified that with a trip into MSpaint. I also added a little (unrelated) blurb of text at the bottom after I saw it on a post on Fark. That, and a little size-increase, and whammo: my background for a few years. I didn't realize until now that I cut the artist's name off, and I wish I hadn't done that. I also wish I could find the person who did it, as it's just fantastic.


Anyways, I'll share some more Batgirl again in the future!
