Batgirl and Daredevil

Batgirl is the latest character to have her self titled comic experience a change in creative teams, and from what I have seen so far, I like the sound of the new direction.  I am not sure how it fits in continuity wise, but Barbara Gordon will be back in graduate school.  Writers Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher have indicated that the title will feature a lighter tone and I think that's a welcome change after all the angst the character has gone through in the last couple of decades.  I also quite like the costume redesign, which you can see here:

This is the first I've seen of that redesign, and for a younger Babs I think it fits perfectly.

I still miss her as Oracle, though. That was such a brilliant self-reinvention that I'm disappointed that DC has abandoned it.

Well I miss all the DC Universe, (pre Flashpoint one). The New 52 feels like what Marvel actually did in the 90's with Avengers, FF, Ironman and CAP, heck they even had Wildstorm characters in all the 13th issues lol. Yeah I miss Oracle, Killing Joke and all the rest too.

LOVE this cover, Batgirl better watch out though, Matt's a lil bit of a ladies man ; D

That is if he don't get run over of course.

Awesome work like always Ross!

"...I want to know why."

I'll guess it's because Kingpin just learned that Vanessa Fisk had twins, back in the day, and secretly gave one up for adoption! And, the legalistic stuff was handled by...Harvey Dent.

For some reason I kind of ship them. Although Matt is a bit out of the age range. But still, I think they'd be cool together. Maybe back in the day?? Lol, good work on the cover, however.
