In high school, I actually had a corner of the wall in my room that I would hurl books at when the ending was bad. It was terrible abuse of the printed word, but in that moment, it felt so good.
Someone asked me how I write fight scenes, because apparently someone thinks I’m good at them. This is news to me, because I consider them the bane of my writing existence. But, in case anyone else finds my thoughts on the subject interesting/useful, here is my response.
Black Canary/Green Arrow - Esquire July 1972
Just for kate.
Oracle 1989-2011 - My first job in comics was creating covers for DC’s Birds of Prey and and over the the course of 24 issues I drew this lovely lady a lot. And then I did some brief interior work on the Cassandra Cain Batgirl and finally did the first run of covers for the Stephanie Brown incarnation. They’ve all been great Batgirls much like Steed’s partners in the Avengers. I’ve done numerous pieces of Babs as Batgirl more so for the retro iconography and the aesthetic look of the black, yellow and red then her actual persona as Batgirl. Honestly in terms of fictional characters, I always just considered her to be Oracle. I, like many others, am very sad her to see her go, but if there’s anyone to keep her spirit alive as Batgirl once again, Gail Simone is the one to do it.
