More Cass and Steph fun plus more chibi pics of them.

Curse you neuhallidae. You put the thought in my head and I just went to it scanning these and searching for them :P

From Batgirl #21 and #28:

I thought what happened next came in the very same issue, but nope a fight with Jokerfied Shadow Thief erupted with Cass kicking his behind so badly she almost killed him. There's a great scene of Cass literally freaking out and Steph coming onto this giving Shadow Thief CPR and reassuring Cass he'll be ok plus she won't tell Oracle or Bats of what happened on the roof great scene.

Also I just love this scene above with Cass training. The look in her eyes as she opens them are just so Batman-like and she's so in this Batman type of mode that.

Well seven issues later:

Another training session goes off between the two and again tommorrow. I really love the look on Cass's face during all of this. She goes from boredom from above to amusement to pure enjoyment hence this:

Steph then tells Cass what's bothering her. Pretty much her pop Cluemaster and explains, "whose like the Riddler only with dumber puns." and why she became Spoiler. Being that it's Father's Day she couldn't help but think of their current relationship which then sparks the question from Steph:

Except Smash Brothers on Wii, which someone in DC should make that cannon. Issue ends on a doner as Steph tells Cass she has to end their sessions due to something that went on in Robin book with Tim. And no way am I ending it with sad puppy Cass face.

Because one post of Steph and Cass moments aren't enough.

And due to my love for Steph's GRRR face:

Anyone know the artist to this? I recall the name a LONG time ago. But the name now to the being who made these escapes me.

I don't like the art much, both those two are just too cute to mind. Awwwwww!

I'm a little surprised no one is objecting to the long narrow pointy eyes on Batgirl there. Maybe because the character is sympathetic, it's not seen as racist.

Or maybe because the art's cartoonish overall? I may not be up to date on what's racist or not, but I think overdone cliché eyes are still a lot less offensive than drawing her as white. I can't recall who did that (since I don't own it and only saw scans on S_D), but there was an issue where you could hardly tell she was Asian at all.

It's a hard line for artists to toe. Too much emphasis on ethnic features, and the reaction is "The racism, it BURNS!" Not enough, and the reaction is more, "Hey, the artist forgot she's supposed to be Asian." Few artists have enough skill to hit just the right degree. (Actually, most artists seem to have all they can do to keep the characters recognizable from scene to scene.)

The art here IS rather cartoony (which I think works fine). The facial expressions and body language have a lot of personality. It just makes me wonder if maybe art like this was in a comic fans didn't like for the characters that the reaction might be negative.

Batgirl is a series that gradually gets better art. We try our best to ignore the Damion Scott (which is hard considering the lack of words), then we get Jeff Parker, then we smile at Rick Leonardi, and then we "FUCK YEAH!" with Alé Garza and Pop Mhan.

And by 'we' I mean 'me'.

Just going by what I've seen here, the art for Batgirl does vary dramatically.

This particular style works well for this sequence, it shows a lot of expression and interaction. I'm not sure how it would work for a big dramatic or poignant moment, but you never know. I was just surprised by how relatively extreme Cass' features are. If those eyes and nose and face shape were on a villainous character, it might be taken as objectionable.
