I think her new helmet thing is cool looking.
The thing is alot of the stylistic conventions of more modern Manga that's creeping into western comic illustration these days are the big giant eyes, the background speed lines for everything, things like the animation cell shaded look etc, the drop of sweat next to a characters head as a visual shorthand for emotions rather that drawing the emotions on the characters face, switching to a bit of chibi art for a panel to portray characters yelling in anger or laughter like a child throwing a tantrum in anger etc, all these conventions that alot of comic book readers here don't like (I meant our superhero readers and I know Manga is huge I know) are more recent influences from the more modern manga rather than Ronin or Lone Wolf and Cub.
I wasn't sure about this, but that interview sold me. I love when chicks kick ass! So many of my favorite characters in one place!
On a semi-related note, I wonder if this is one of the 52 Earths? It would kinda have to be, right?
Looking for artists, know I won't find any. That blows.
Here is little more on this project.
A world without male heroes and villains. Interesting. I kind of like that idea. Is something we haven't seen before.
I think that might actually be my favorite Batgirl design. I dig the Gatchaman-ness to it.
