Yeah I’m really conscious of that, we do have these overarching plots we have to serve, but Cameron and I are conscious of new readers coming in at any point, and making this series and the other two series I’m writing, Gotham Academy and Black Canary, not feel bogged down by the long histories of the characterizes, by all these decades worth of stories that came before. I never want to discount any of that or make it seem like those points of continuity never took place. But I just think each issue needs to feel like a fresh place for a new reader to start, that they can come in and get something out of it. - Brenden Fletcher

"I would argue that the people that enjoy this don't know the real Barbara Gordon at all. They like this because they don't know any better. She has been around since 1967. That is 49 years. This current run is a blip of her total history. Stewart's run accounts for about 2% of her accumulated existence. When I evaluate her, I evaluate her against herself. His run is absolutely not a fair representation of the character by any means.

Maybe this is a Batgirl that certain people can relate to, but is it really the kind of Batgirl we want them looking up to and emulating.

A lot of these characters are more real to me than people I know in reality. Batgirl is like my sister for crying out loud. And right now, Stewart is telling lies about her. You think I'm just going to stand by and watch somebody badmouth my sister. I protect my own. Since Batgirl is a fictional character, she can't defend herself. She needs people like you and me to defend her. If you really had her back, like your name implies, you wouldn't be defending this.

JOKER: LAST LAUGH #1 had Dick Grayson take Barbara Gordon out so she wouldn't focus on the Joker (locked up in the Slab). Being a superhero story, Barbara will blame herself for the Joker escaping (with a gang of Jokerized super-criminals) since "She only looked away once."

Anyway, two pages of Dick and Babs have them discussing if what the Bat-family does counts as revenge.

I've mentioned this series in posts in the past, but it still seems relevant to the group, and to those looking for some actual female focussed superhero items for younger family members, or even for yourselves (I'm in no position to judge another person's toy collection heaven knows). The dolls and action figures have now been shown in packaging.

Well, I have a some nieces and a goddaughter or two who might enjoy these )

As I mentioned earlier in the day, it's 50 years to the day since Adam West and Burt Ward burst on to our screen as the defintive, if somewhat campy, Dynamic Duo.


And appropriately enough, the final issue of the Batman '66 comic is a tribute to the show which made

'Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na BATMAN!' a worldwide phenomenon )

"Yeah we never really get enough time you know, we say it again and again 20 pages is never enough. We have a really great supporting cast, the three of us have worked so hard to develop the supporting cast and they’re sp important to us and we really want to spend more time with them, but we have to remind ourselves the book is called Batgirl.

It’s about Barbara Gordon and about how she moves through her life and spends time with these people as much as she can while trying to better herself, while trying to get an education, while trying to maintain any kind of work she’s doing while saving the lives of people in Burnside and Gotham, She doesn’t have a lot of spare time in her life and rarely spends a lot time with any one person.

"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
