So, I was working on my pull list article for my website (where I detail what looks good in comics the coming week), and looked up the Battle For The Cowl: The Network cover art for use in the article. I felt...compelled....to share this with you.

Jesus Christ, Cassandra has not always been this well endowed.

I just found it amusing, and figured you guys would too.

It's actually Power Girl disguised as Batgirl.

Hmm, the Earth 2 Bat-Girl you say?

She was in a hurry and didn't have time to cut out the bat insignia for her cleavage window.

This nonsense started waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the World War III special, where she was hanging out with Deathstroke. Slade Wilson apparently has mammary-enlarging powers, judging from the way Ravager and Batgirl have filled out in recent years.

Kids these days, I tell ya. Must be something in that evil serum Slade's always pushing.

Also, Kate's not that skinny.

Ironically, Kate Spencer, the woman who gave birth, is smaller boobs than Cassandra Cain, the athletic teenage girl.

On the other hand, at least Helena is in THE RIGHT FUCKING COSTUME. Pity the interior artist didn't get the memo.

Absolutely 100% agreed. Considering that her costume doubles as armor the stripperific outfit they keep wanting to stick Huntress in makes absolutely no sense.

Motto. My first thought on seeing this was "Helena is wearing PANTS!" I didn't even notice the ginormous boobs for a second or two, I was so caught up the the pants-joy.

I'm holding out hope that she's just hiding a pair of smoke grenades or some other useful device in there.

I've seen her with bigger boobs. In cannon too. Actually they are kind of downplayed here, all bunched together instead of flopping around separately from one another in individual form fitting boob sacks like they normally are.

Oh that cover scares me every time, though I love the colouring on it!

Foot hiding, incredibly fucked up anatomy, giant pouches on Batgirl's belt... Liefeld, is that you?

To me, this looks suspiciously like Frank Miller and Lynn Varley's art in Elektra Lives.

Not that it's them, but the style seems quite familiar.

Yeah, was joking a bit. Eitherway there's just so much going wrong here ()...

I'm sorry, but there is something super freakish about the anatomy on the ladies. Something about the rib cages, musculature looks too man-ish. It's like he made the boobs huge in order to compensate for the rather masculine body structure...I mean...look at Manhunter...what is up her ribcage/spine. O.o And Cass's face is too long. She's got a rather manly chin there actually. *shudders* Great concept, great coloring, but the executions kinda faulty in the anatomy. *shudders* creepy...

They do all have rather mannish shoulders. They also apparently haven't got any internal organs and might have had ribs removed.

The coloring, on the other hand, is gorgeous.

I was thinkin' that. Maybe someone here is spending too much time drawing the costume and then spackling in the anatomy under it...?

Part of that is muscle, the rest is boob.

Make up your own proportions.

Judging by the face, shoulders and the rest of the musculature I'd say this is actually Tim with two large sandbags attached to his chest. And in a corset.

And now, I can't unsee it.

We need Crossdresserfic over here! Stat!

I like your theory. Unfortunately, I know for a fact that I've seen Tim (and I think Dick at one point) cross-dress better than that. Tim on the undercover mission where he's dressed as a (female) medical student, and I believe it was Dick who once dressed as Babs!Batgirl so she and her alter-ego could appear together in front of her dad. But that being Tim in bad drag would make more sense than that being Cass.

I'm just surprised that Ragman isn't sporting twin bazookas too. If the artist has gone this far down the path he might as well go all the way.

It's obviously extra armor plate and kevlar which doubles as a nifty distraction for male (and some female) opponents.

I hope.

I really hope she's hiding something in there.

Don't worry.


I'm pretty sure all boobs eventually lead to the Bleed; he'll end up on another Earth, safe and sound.

The art bothers me. Many of the ladies there look like men with breasts.

I seem to recall seeing this art on the old s_c. Nice little pud that Kate has going there.

It's kind of the reverse of art by Trina Robbins or early Colleen Doran, where the men are women with slightly wider shoulders and maybe a wispy little mustache.

Given how the boobs are lit up, I thought this was the return of The Mighty Endowed.

IT'S RAGMAN! Ragman is awesome.
And yes, that is scary artwork on Batgirl. The immediate impression I had is that her actual chest is missing, and that her lower abdomen is growing directly out of the bottom of her breasts.
