    Default 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 #18Written by RAY FAWKESArt and cover by DANIEL SAMPERE and VICENTE CIFUENTESOn 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.

    That Batman cover looks like it's by Andy Kubert? Alternate cover or is he doing a fill in?

    Fawkes? Well crap. That is...much better than I thought it would be.

    Awesome! Sorry for Mrs. Simone's misfortune -- I've loved a lot of her work over the years -- but her Batgirl wasn't clicking with me. Hopefully Fawkes' will.

    Curse DC and they're constantly hiring older writers!

    Default Stick a feather in it

    The Batman cover, lower right background.

    Why is someone in the background holding up an inkwell with a feather pen in it?

    Enquiring minds want to know.....
