"Wearing the 'R' is part of a legacy. A major theme of the book, and I have been saying this from the very beginning, [is that] it's one thing to call yourself a 'Robin'; it's another thing to be a 'Robin.' It's fun to watch bad guys hit the floor, but it really means something much bigger than that. It's the idea that you are part of something bigger than yourself. And not only that but you also have to respect the symbol. In Gotham, wearing the 'R' is part of the city's mythology. The city has seen different Robins over the years and they have also seen different Batmans. The concept is big enough in the public's eye where I thought there should be a moment where one of the "old guard," so to speak, drives that point home to these kids. It is certainly something that we are going to be exploring in different ways in future issues, as well." - Lee Bermejo

"When we originally plotted this story, Bullock and Montoya were supposed to be the main protagonists, but after Paul turned in his script, I decided I wanted to put Batgirl in it, too (I love to draw pretty girls, in case you didn't know). As I recall, Paul's reaction was 'WHAT!!??!!' I explained how I thought we could do it and subsequently wrote most, if not all, of her dialogue myself directly on the boards. I think Paul was ultimately happy with the final result, but you'd have to ask him." --Bruce Timm, Afterword, Batman: Mad Love and Other Stories

Once upon a time, there was Batman: The Animated Series. And it was good.

Then someone decided to shake up the status quo, slap more action-ready redesigns on everybody, replace half the writing staff, and tie it all to the Superman cartoon airing at the time. And the results were decidedly horrible mixed.

Somewhere closer to the positive end of that scale, we have 1996's Batgirl Adventures #1, sort of a pseudo-sequel to 1995's Batman Adventures Holiday Special as well as another prototype of TNBA's Girls' Night Out. Once again, there's not much plot other than "the ladies of Gotham kick lots of ass, add one cup of humor and stir", but it's a formula that's made Paul Dini plenty popular, and I'd be lying if I said I weren't fond if it.

(Doesn't hurt that the yellow-and-black look is one of my favorite BG costumes of all time, either.)

Oh, there was a girl from Gotham...

That walked the hero's road,

For the sake of her old father...

It's to her I sing this ode.

With ra-zor sharp intellect...

She struck down every foe.

Joy and inspiration,

It's these to her we owe...

Gray and blue...

Gray and blue...

The girl from Gotham wore the gray and blue...

So of course, this comic is best known for introducing a sociopathic criminal. C'est la vie. )

By the way, I'll be going through a lot of Babsgirl stuff this week, so if there's anything you want me to keep my grubby little hands off of, speak up now. Thank you.

 To kick off our little tributes to the inimitable Ms. Craig, here's a fun little scene from one of the recent issues of Batman '66, and a glimpse into what might have been had the show been made with more... modern standards.

Admittedly, the story in itself isn't really worth picking up; its being a one-parter means the central joke (imagine Mad Men, only with 200% more Batman villains!) is flat and inconsistent, and I'm not really satisfied with how Barbara ultimately won, even though it was nice to see a story try to emphasize Barbara Gordon's competence over Batgirl's.

But hey, you look me in the eye and tell me one other place where you can see BG beat up four supervillains at the same time.

An imaginary story behind the cut. Aren't they all? )

As you are most likely aware, Yvonne Craig, the actress who originated the roles of Barbara Gordon and Batgirl in the 1966 Batman TV series, passed away last week after a fight with cancer.

In light of this sad milestone, it would seem apt for scans_daily to join other fans around the world in mourning her loss, but also to celebrate the character she breathed life into, and set the standard for for decades to come.

Harley Quinn is easily one of the most popular of the Batman Rogues, and in part that's due to her rounded characterisation, humour and tragic backstory... but there's one kind of questionable part that creators over the years have had a bit of difficulty ironing out.

Namely: How she got her degree.

Jim Gordon's tenure as Batman continues as those closest to him struggle to deal with the tragic loss of his moustache. • 32 pg, FC • $2.99 US • RATED T

Also, what's your favorite superhero "secret identity-reveal" moment? I've always liked the Ultimate Spider-Man/Mary Jane one.
