Batgirl Speculation Continues!

In Comic News on June 8, 2009 at 2:57 pm

SOURCE: The Source » Let’s speculate a bit more about BATGIRL, shall we?.

DC has decided to tease us a bit more about who the new Batgirl is, releasing its second teaser image.

As opposed to the first one, this image features (presumably) the new Batgirl wearing the classic Barbara Gordon costume, though the boots are a little different. Its pretty sad, but the identity of the new Batgirl seems to have become a bigger mystery for the titles than who the new Batman was.

Batgirl #1 is slated to arrive this August.

TRAILER: "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies"

In Comic News, Trailers on May 21, 2009 at 8:06 pm

The trailer for the next DC Animated flick, “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” was leaked recently. All the copies of it have been pulled off of YouTube, but The HomeWorld has found it still available on a Russian video sharing site!

The trailer offers glimpses of the films leads, as well as Lex Luthor, Major Force, Black Manta, Giganta, Catman, Bane, The Composite Superman/Batman Rocket, Katana, Captain Atom, Silver Banshee, Metallo, Solomon Grundy and more, all based on Ed McGinnis’ designs.

The animated feature, which is an adaption of the Jeph Loeb penned and Ed McGinnis drawn premiere arc of the ongoing “Superman/Batman” comic book, is slated to be released sometime this Fall.

Breaking: "Flash: Rebirth" Runs Longer

In Comic News on May 12, 2009 at 5:10 pm

DC Comics, via its Source Blog, has announced some changes to its “The Flash: Rebirth” mini.

The series, penned by Geoff Johns and drawn by Ethan Van Sciver, has been extended from a 5 issue mini-series to a 6 issue mini.  No word yet on the reason for the extension, though its likely that Geoff Johns just wants to rape some more of Barry Allen’s continuity.

We’ll be updating on this as soon as more information becomes available.  Until then, check out our reviews for issues one and two.

DCU’s The Source Blog continues teasing the new Batgirl on-going today: they’ve just released information on the upcoming titles creative team.

Bryan Q. Miller, who wrote a few episodes of Smallville this season, handles the writing chores, as well as taking on a three-issue Teen Titans arc this July.

The art will be handled by Lee Garbett, who was a regular artist for The Outsiders, will be handling the art, while his The Outsiders collaborator Trevor Scott will be doing the inks work.

The Source also confirms that the previously released image (seen below) is the cover art for issue #1, and was done by Phil Noto.

Who's That Girl?

In Comic News on May 4, 2009 at 9:15 pm

DCU’s The Source blog is at it again, releasing this little number….

Batgirl?

The blog features a Batgirl wearing a modified Batgirl costume as worn by Cassandra Cain, but who’s really in the costume?  Cassandra herself has been a bit more up front recently, taking an active role in assembling heroes to defend Gotham during Batman’s absence, but Barbara Gordon/Batgirl I is currently in her own mini-series which many speculate will end in Barbara getting her legs back.  Who exactly is in the suit is up in the air still, but DC seems content to milk it for what its worth.  Hopefully within the next month or so, when the new Batgirl on-going begins, we’ll get a definite answer, but until then, feel free to light up the comments below with your speculation.
