Just wanted to say, I loved the first few installments so far, and was wondering, any idea when the next parts will be up?
Thanks. I’ll update as much as I can, which may only be as little as one pin-up image a week. I’m just a busy person, and work and my community involvement comes before the internet.
Hey, comic update today though. ^_^;;
A day late, Halloween issue.
Written By: Jonathan Farber
Argh. Sorry guys. I’m working massive overtime this week (plus after-work meetings for my community involvement things) and haven’t had a chance to scan and color arts. I’ll get something up this weekend in apology, and have enough drawn for regular updates next week.
That said. Query. Halloween costumes for the girls (feel free to suggest other characters too)?
BATGIRLS!! Give me your thoughts
Guys I just want to say, I got some incredibly good feedback on this. This was something I’ve been concerned about the reception of, and I’m glad it was talked about. Every response had very valid points and I had to think about how Batgirls!! would go forward.
A few people wanted me to keep the “year one” vibe and use pre-TKJ Barbara throughout. A few people felt it was disrespectful to Barbara and what she represents as a differently-abled woman in comics to execute Batgirls!! as pre-TKJ.
Ultimately, I’m going to take the compromise route. Batgirls!! is here to be a fun out-of-continuity thing. The fact that it’s crowd-sourced means it will be always be episodic in nature. So, I’m going to treat it as an anthology of stories (read Asatira’s commentary below the fold). Based on what works with the script for that issue, I’ll choose a version of Barbara to illustrate from here on out—and you will see Barbara at both times in her life.
Sort of. Liberties taken… Anyhoo.
Special update. I missed this opportunity for Oracle.
A woman who has been knocked down some many times she could work as a human pin in a bowling alley. A woman who is part physical prowess, part snark and all heart. A woman who had to put on four different costumes until she got one that truly fit her. Also, spoiler alert, the woman that did this in her title issue this week.
Vote Stephanie Brown in October Madness match-up #14 to decide the most kick-ass DC woman.
Batgirls!! - 1st Chat Log
Request for Ted/Babs fluff: PyroTwilight
[Translating Khaji Da’s dialog: “They’re totally going to cyber do it.”]
I am aware that Khaji Da(the scarab) could never communicate with Ted in canon, but for fun I’m letting Khaji Da be able to talk to both Ted and (theoretical-might-appear-later) Jaime. Khaji Da is our adorable little canon trolly bug, after all.
Also, source for the screen names.
So. In a very genuine let’s talk about this out in the open moment… Let me point you to the ongoing discussion about what “BATGIRLS!!” should do regarding the Batgirl and Oracle Barbara versions.
Right now, I’m liking the suggested “compromise” that since BATGIRLS!! is episodic in nature, to just flip back and forth amongst the time line and show both identities. Partially because I’d like to illustrate both versions and satisfy both audiences, and also because I really don’t want to illustrate TKJ occurring all over again.
But, Your input is much desired.
Also, new comic coming tomorrow morning, as previously scheduled. Cutesy and random.
