“BATGIRLS!!” is a free, crowdsourced Tumblr fancomic published (hopefully) 1 to 2 times a week. It focuses on in and out of costume hijinks of the what-if all three DCU Batgirls were BFFs, active at the same time, and operated as a single team.
Join the manga-esque adventures of Barbara Gordon, Cassandra Cain, and Stephanie Brown.
Rules of Continuity, Context, and Conduct
- “BATGIRLS!!” is intended to be relatively all-ages, so let’s max out at a low-to-medium PG-13 rating. Nudity/sex/etc should be played for laughs or alluded to rather than shown, and big curse words will be bleeped.
- Continuity? We don’t need no stinking continuity. All 3 Batgirls, one team. Continuity, character death, and etc be damned.
- All sexual orientations will be presented as normal. It’s not an issue. It just is.
- I will support all ships (short of pedophilia and incest). If you don’t like what you see, write a strip showing what you want to see.
- In order to keep an AU shoujo manga vibe…everyone is young, happy and gets along for the most part!
- Barbara Gordon is the oldest Batgirl and leader. Big sister figure. We’re probably going to keep with the idea that she’s Bi and in primary off-again-on-again relationships with Dick Grayson/Nightwing and Dinah Lance/Black Canary —but feel free to throw whatever you like at me in scripts.
- I encourage Cass communicating primarily via Impulse-style picture speech bubbles and/or the stilted English that is part of her characterization.
- Stephanie Brown is going to be played as primarily straight and as close to the current Batgirl title as I can manage in personality.
- The Robins can be the girls’ doormats at any given time —in the most loving…er…way possible.
- Cameos are welcome! Everyone in DCU is fair game—as long as we can look them up on ComicVine.
- As always, context is for the weak.
