Batgirl has an all new look, and a cool new uniform to fight crime in. I personally love it, and it's going to be great when we start seeing cosplayers sporting it in real life. The design comes from comic illustrator Babs Tarr who is making her mainstream comic debut with Batgirl.
The new comic writing team consists of Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher, who worked on Batman Inc. and Wednesday Comics. Barbara Gordon's new adventure begins with Batgirl #35, and it will reevaluate her life in a big way.
Stewart talked about the direction they are taking the character with MTV saying:
"She's leaving it all behind her. We really wanted to make this a book with a light tone, of fun and adventure and mystery, and let the rest of the Bat-family deal with the darkness. She's got problems, and conflict, and enemies to fight, but our priority was to make this a really fun, rollicking read."
Barbara ends up moving to a trendy hip part of Gotham City, and there she will focus on going to graduate school. She will still go out and solve mysteries and fight villains, but she will also go out and have some fun.
Fletcher then adds that the new take "mixes the best elements of Veronica Mars and Girls, with a dash of Sherlock thrown in for good measure." Sounds like fun to me.
