DC confirms brand new Batgirl creative team, and a brand new look for Babs!

batgirl_promo_poster2DC have just announced via MTV that their ongoing BATGIRL series will see a creator shake-up from issue #35.  The new team will be made up of Cameron Stewart (BATMAN INC.,THE MULTIVERSITY), Brenden Fletcher (WEDNESDAY COMICS), and rising star Babs Tarr.

In an interview with MTV about the direction of the series, Stewart said “Batgirl has really been put through the wringer in recent years – after being attacked and paralyzed by the Joker, her brother turning out to be a serial murderer, the trauma of her family breaking apart and the series of gruesome villains she’s had to contend with, we figured she deserved a break from all that. Just prior to the start of our story she’s pushed to the breaking point and decides that she’s had it with misery and darkness and wants a change. She wants the opportunity to have some fun and live the life of a young, single girl in the city, so she packs up and moves to Burnside, the cool,trendy borough of Gotham, to focus on grad school.”

The team also revealed a new look for Barbara (seen below), explaining that “Barbara is forced to make a new costume for herself when her old one becomes unavailable. The new one is something she’s able to make herself, shopping at the various boutique and vintage stores in Burnside. It also reflects her youth and style. Unlike Batman or Batwoman, she no longer needs to stay in the shadows, and in fact learns to embrace the spotlight”

BATGIRLMODEL2So what do you think of the new team and the new look?

Also, as a side-note, have no fear because DC also confirmed that departing writer (and recent Glasgow Comic Con guest) Gail Simone will be unveiling a brand new project soon.

  1. I’m not a fan. In my opinion, Oracle was Barbara Gordon’s best portrayal.
