  1. Pull it Together: Hawkeye, Lazarus and the Finales of The Wake and Fatale

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull it Together, where the goal isn’t to tell you exactly what comics you should read, but to narrow the field by showing you titles you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours! For special attention this week, I direct you towards Comixology's Guardians of the Galaxy sale, as the second collection of Greg Rucka's Lazarus and the finale of The Wake.

  2. The Batfamily Reunited This Week, Except for One: Let’s Not Forget Batgirl Cassandra Cain

    Essay

    One of the more easily pointed to examples of sexism in the New 52 concerned which of the five characters to be called Robin and three characters to be called Batgirl made it to the new continuity. Editorial explained to fans that two Batgirls would be erased from the setting so the "most iconic" one, Barbara Gordon, could be returned to the costume, to make things simple for new readers. However, in the other Batcave locker room, all four of the male characters who had been Robin were brought over to the New 52, despite the new universe having a hard age limit of five years from the first appearance of Batman. This week saw one of those women (spoiler for Batman #28) Stephanie Brown, the third Batgirl and fourth Robin, return to comics as the Spoiler in a sneak preview of the next story arc to engulf Gotham City and the Batman-related titles. And while I'm very excited to have her back, I worry about Cassandra Cain, the first person of color to join the Batfamily, who is now that last Batgirl sitting on the bench with the rest of the New 52's abandoned heroes.

  5. This Is Not A Drill: DC Comics’ Stephanie Brown Is In A Video Game

    Almost Totally Excellent

    Something of note was revealed at E3 today. Stephanie Brown. Yes, the Stephanie Brown from DC Comics. You know, the one they don't utilize at all. Now, don't get too excited. Her appearance comes in the form of Scribblenauts Unleashed: A DC Comics Adventure. And she's wearing a mask. But she's in her Batgirl costume. I honestly have no idea what's happening, I just know she's in a DC branded video game and it makes me supremely happy. [Editor's Note: The video should start at the right section; if it doesn't, skip ahead to the 16:15 mark.] (via Bleeding Cool) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  8. Why Did DC Comics Change The Hair Color Of A Girl Dressed As Batgirl For Halloween?

    I See What They Did There

    Ok, so I already gave away the change in the title so we can't play a game of "Spot the Difference" but what I can tell you is the image on the left is part of a page from Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridgolfs' digital-first Lil' Gotham comic. On the right is what DC Comics sold on release day. The only alteration is Batgirl's hair color. The image is not of Stephanie Brown/Batgirl but rather a person dressed as the character among a group of other folks dressed up as DC heroes and villains for Halloween. We've posted the full images after the jump and we leave it up to you to discuss.

  9. Watch Stephanie Brown Kick Ass In Batgirl: Spoiled, An Upcoming Web Series

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Batgirl: Spoiled is an upcoming web series created by Sax Carr and Marisha Ray that follows Stephanie Brown, the third Batgirl, as she endeavors to understand her place in Gotham and the Bat family. This trailer is mostly a proof of concept, with some character development thrown in at the end, but let me just say this is an amazing project. I'm pretty sure I audibly squealed "OMG" when I saw Oracle, Batwoman, and Renee Montoya on the screen. And while it's definitely missing Stephanie's quick quips and comebacks, I'm sure it'll come in time with an actual episode, and honestly, her cocky smile was enough for me. Check out the project's Facebook page, and join us as we wait on the edge of our seat for the first episode. (via Youtube.)
