Batgirl Gets Bedazzled On Cameron Stewart’s Fabulous Cover To ‘Batgirl’ #37

Batgirl00

By this point, you've probably noticed that we here at ComicsAlliance are already huge fans of the new Batgirl of Burnside costume making its debut next month in Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr's Batgirl #35, but there are some out there who don't like it. For a few eaders, the stylish leather jacket and snapped cape just seems so much less practical and realistic than the heavily seamed skintight spandex, leading them to express genuine concern about Batgirl's effectiveness as a crimefighter.

Fortunately for those compassionate souls, Cameron Stewart has made a concession in the form of a variant cover for December's Batgirl #37, featuring a new variant of Batgirl's costume that is more practical.

Bob Fingerman’s ‘Minimum Wage’ Returns With New Collection [Preview]

MinimumWageCoverMain

Among a certain group of comics fans -- namely, comedians -- Bob Fingerman is a name that is revered.

Over the quarter-century or so that he has been working in comics, Fingerman has dipped his toe into a lot of different pools, from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics all the way to Eros' porn comix, but his autobiographical comic Minimum Wage will probably be what he's remembered for through the ages. Over the past few years, Image Comics has given readers ample opportunity to catch up with Minimum Wage, and in October they'll have a chance to read the first six issues of the new iteration of the series in a brand new trade paperback.

The Naughty Knot: Unpacking Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso’s Comments On Sex Appeal And Diversity

blackwidowhed

In an interview with The Telegraph's Radhika Sanghani, Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso offered some insights into how he regards the superhero comic industry's treatment of female characters -- and his own intentions towards diversity.

The interview is chiefly noteworthy for confirming what already seems apparent from recent changes in Marvel's line-up, namely that Marvel understands and is responding to demographic changes in the marketplace.

Karl Kerschl’s Hello Kitty Comic Is Adorable, Raises Even More Questions About Her Species

Untitled-1

In case you haven't been keeping up on the anniversary celebrations of your favorite Japanese cuteness icons, this year marks the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty. To celebrate the occasion, Sanrio -- which has recently been pretty cagey about whether or not Hello Kitty is actually a cat -- put out a hardcover featuring artists from all over the world, with comics celebrating 40 years of adorability.

One such creator was Karl Kerschl, the artist of the upcoming Gotham Academy, who contributed a sci-fi-inspired three-page strip that is absolutely delightful. There's just one problem: The third page was rejected by Sanrio for implying that Hello Kitty is actually a cat.

Largest Collection

After nearly two years of convincing Guinness' record judges that his comic book collection is, in fact, the world's largest, Mission Viejo, California man Bob Bretall was able to announce on his Facebook page that it's finally official: His comic book collection is on page 172 of the new Guinness Book of World Records.

Untitled-1

While director Zack Snyder did share a look at the 'Batman vs. Superman' version of the Batmobile, it was parked in a warehouse and half-covered in smoke. In short, you couldn't really get a good sense of what it would look like in action.
