ICYMI: Frankie Charles Finally Gets A Codename In Batgirl #50
Barbara Gordon's network of friends and allies has been an ongoing theme in the recently concluded Batgirl run by Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr. Whether it's Black Canary, Spoiler, Batwing or Bluebird, there's no way Batgirl would have been able to overcome the obstacles she overcame without a little help from her friends. One of Batgirl's fiercest allies throughout the run has been Frankie Charles, Barbara's roommate whom she met while they were both in physical therapy together. Although Frankie still often requires assistance to walk, that doesn't stop her being an integral part of Team Batgirl, and in the most recent issue she finally got a superhero identity.

Tarr, Stewart, and Fletcher Promise Motocycle Mayhem in 'Motor Crush'
Following their departure from Batgirl, Babs Tarr, Cameron Stewart, and Brenden Fletcher will be launching an all new comic for Image, as announced at today's Image Expo. Coming in December 2016, Motor Crush is the story of Domino Swift, who spends her days racing in a legitimate worldwide racing league, and her nights competing in illegal motorcycle brawls, in an attempt to get her hands on a machine narcotic known as crush. "Everything's going to be a little bit amped up," explained Tarr.
Sounds of Screaming: Black Canary EP is a Goth Rock Delight
Sounds of Screaming: Black Canary EP is a Goth Rock Delight
Actual music that purports to be by a band from a comic book? There's no way that's going to be good, right? I mean, the one really successful example is Sugar Sugar by The Archies, and that doesn't particularly stand the test of time. So when I heard DC had put out an official Black Canary EP, timed with this week's release of the first trade paperback, I was understandably skeptical. I think about music a lot, and already associate particular artists and sounds with characters and comics, even the ones that aren't about bands. In my head, I'd always imagined Black Canary sounded like Savages crossed with Shady Hawkins. But there's no way DC Comics would ever authorize anything that raw and authentic, right? I figured anything that was officially released as Black Canary's music would sound safe and boring, and not at all what the band portrayed in the comic should sound like.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a 'Black Canary' Movie?
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week I'm finally following through on a promise I made in the very first Cast Party, and envisioning a Black Canary movie.

It seems that the launch of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was so successful that Boom Studios is following it up with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, a solo miniseries starring Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, co-written by Brenden Fletcher of Gotham Academy and Batgirl, and Kelly Thompson of Jem and the Holograms, with art by Mirror's Edge: Exordium's Daniele Di Nicuolo, and covers by Elsa Charretier and Marguerite Sauvage.
ICYMI: Batgirl and Batwing's Luchadore Makeover
ICYMI: Batgirl and Batwing's Luchadore Makeover
Batgirl has been firing on all cylinders since the creative team of Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr came aboard just over a year ago, and has carved a niche as not only one of the most exciting books published by DC Comics, but as a book that's genuinely representative of the millennial experience. It might just be the amount of Lucha Underground that this particular millennial watches, but the most exciting moment in comics this week came from Batgirl #48, with the team joined by Rob Haynes, Serge LaPointe and Lee Loughridge.
New 'Assassin's Creed' Games To Star Comic Book Characters
New 'Assassin's Creed' Games To Star Comic Book Characters
The great thing about Assassin's Creed is that the long history built into the games' plot about the centuries-long war between the Assassins and Templars means that you can take your story just about anywhere --- and any time. Well, actually, no, that's not true; the actual great thing about Assassin's Creed is all the gymnastic stabbing, but aside from that, it's all the different stories you can tell. And given that the games have been a pretty solid hit for Ubisoft, it makes sense that they're going more places than ever --- and when the next two chapters of Assassin's Creed Chronicles hit at the beginning of 2016, they're taking characters created by comic's own Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl with them.
'Batgirl' #45 Takes On The Gordon/Grayson Relationship
'Batgirl' #45 Takes On The Gordon/Grayson Relationship
I don't have a whole lot of OTPs, but Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon are right there at the top of the list. They're two characters who have felt made for each other since the first time I saw them together, and even when they're not romantically entangled --- which is pretty frequently the case for characters that I always picture together --- and even when I don't actually want to see them romantically involved, which happens almost as often, their interactions always have a sense of history that makes them compelling and interesting. It's that interaction that takes center stage in this week's Batgirl #45, a character piece about two people whose lives have been pulled in drastically different directions and who don't know if they'll ever have the same connection that they once did. And it's one of the best takes on their relationship that I've ever read.

Preview: An Ill-Advised Field Trip In 'Gotham Academy' #11
It might be a crime-ridden urban hellscape that's frequently destroyed by a murder clown, but the one thing you can say about Gotham City is that it has some great tourist attractions. There's the Crossword Puzzle Museum, the Second National Bank (at the corner of 2nd Street and Second Avenue), and the Ace Chemical Plant/Monarch Playing Card Factory historical site. Any of these destinations would make for a fun and educational field trip. So of course, that's not at all where the kids from Gotham Academy are going on their first trip into the city. Instead, Olive, Maps and the rest of the gang have decided that they should immediately go into the nearest available blind alley, and I have never been more worried about their safety than I am right now. Check out an exclusive preview of the next issue, Gotham Academy #11, by Brenden Fletcher, Becky Cloonan and Karl Kerschl.
