    Great news! I got the first 9 issues of Simone's run, because Babs Batgirl is one of my favorite characters, but I didn't like them. Tarr's art on Deviantart is great! I like that they're going for a lighter, funnier book. I haven't read anything by the new writing team. Are they considered to be good writers?

    Yeah I like this idea, Oracle as a Big Data algorithm.

    Hipster batgirl, seems cool I'll definitely try it, I enjoyed the new take on dick grayson and am looking forward to the gritty crime catwoman. It's getting so the bat family are looking more exciting than the bat himself
    Books I'm reading: Batman Eternal, Red Hood, Black Widow, Elektra, Loki Agent of Asgard, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Action Comics, Catwoman.........

    I love it as well. It reminds me of Damian's, in that it's more like street clothes that were turned into a superhero suit. Damian had a normal pair of grey pants, a pair of boots with shoelaces and everything. I dont know, it's cuter, it's more fun, it's cooler even.

    Now this Babs. This babs i will love and read.

    What makes you think that's not going to happen?

    God, that fits so $#&@ing well. Great idea!

    Unfortunately, you saying it here means that it can probably never happen for the same reason writers don't like reading amateur scripts to avoid a potential "THAT WAS MY IDEA YOU STOLE IT" situation.

    Like the Emma Peel-style costume, minus the clunky boots. Hopefully we'll see more costume redesigns that look less self-consciously Nu52.

    And there were people in here that couldnt understand the simple concept that maybe someone likes Babs, but they didnt like Simone's book. No... you must like teh Cass or teh Steph.

    No, the book was book was horrible regardless of who was under the cowl.

It's as though she's stopped writing good stories and now only writes about idealised versions of characters that just aren't particularly fun. And fun is the very thing that Gail used to be so good at.

    The idea of Gail writing for Kate, Steph or Cass... that's a genuinely scary prospect. Course, it would be ironic that with Fletcher/Stewart writing for her, Babs could actually become the character that Steph used to be. Swings and roundabouts, ain't it.

    As for the new costume... I'm on the fence. I ain't sorry to see the back of the armoured look, but the leather jacket does come across like another case of the boobies-are-so-90's hipsterfication of some female comic-book characters lately. And it's not like Babs was exactly Power-Girl previously anyway (even when Benes was on art). That said, I'm loving the look of the art in general.
    About your Babs/steph comment; that's the impression I'm getting from this book, and I'm not sure it's the right direction for her.

    I'm excited about this. It really does look like DC has been listening to fan reaction and actively trying to bring back tonal (and concept) variety to their line.

    My only concern is that they'll try too hard to make their books "hip".

    I also appreciate that, at least from those images, they've given her a more reasonable bust size. No inflato-boobs here, good for them.

    I thought this was supposed to be bad :S that design looks awesome! Also love the fact they're doing away with the costume that shapes her boobs

    fingers crossed that Supergirl is soon to follow

    Love the new costume and art, but it looks like she is being de-aged even further which I'm not cool with. If she's going back to school, we'd better see the return of those insane computer skills she had as Oracle.

    Batgirl always should have been the lightest Bat-book, so looking forward to the new tone and following Gail to whatever project she's got lined up next.

    A Gotham book that doesn't look like complete garbage? Man, that's two in a row for DC. And this one actually has a chance of lasting more than a year before it gets turned into the same Nu52 mediocrity we've been seeing for the past three years.

    Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr are fantastic. I hope this book does well even though I'm not optimistic enough to expect it to.
