Ray Fawkes On Batgirl – Will He Receive The Treatment Of His Namesake?

Remember, remember, the tenth of December…

Today, the Outhousers managed to see Newsarama’s listing of the Batman Group solicitations before they subsequently pulled it, and extracted this particular entry;

BATGIRL #18
Written by RAY FAWKES
Art and cover by DANIEL SAMPERE and VICENTE CIFUENTES
On sale MARCH 13 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
• The first of two issues by guest writer Ray Fawkes!
• Batgirl must face the man who sold her out to The Joker during “DEATH OF THE FAMILY”…her own brother, James Gordon, Jr.
• Can Barbara help him, or will this conflict be the final nail in her family’s coffin?

Intriguingly this doesn’t answer the questions as to who is writing issue 17… Gail’s last issue is meant to be 16. But the rumour is that whoever is writing the fill-in issues will take over the book subsequently now that Gail has been fired from it.

Ray Fawkes is an indie creator who, amongst other books, write and drew One Soul, which I believe is one of the best comics of the century.

Batgirl will be an interesting jump. Will he be celebrated for his clear skills as a comic creator? Or hung, drawn, quartered and burnt like his namesake by the internet?

Oh go on, here’s the cover for Batman #18 while we’re at it.
