Batgirl Is A Phenomenon
from Robin 088 2001-05 digital
This is the oft posted “Become Faster” sequence in max tumblr resolution with a digital source. It perfectly captures Cassandra (skilled, intense, blunt) and Stephanie’s (a novice, upbeat, uncertain) characters.
The stinger at the end is a great example of Bruce showing paternal pride in Cass:
Steph: Will I ever be that good?
Batman: Honestly? Probably not. Batgirl is a phenomenon.
WATCH FRANCIS MANAPUL DRAW A CANADIAN HERO PUNCHING OUT HITLER FOR THE JOHNNY CANUCK KICKSTARTER [VIDEO]
While Captain America is perhaps fictional history’s best-known Hitler-puncher, he is far from the only hero to sock old Adolf in the jaw — and now Canada gets its turn courtesy of Francis Manapul‘s fundraiser sketch for the Johnny Canuck Kickstarter. The Toronto-based Detective Comics co-writer and artist filmed himself as he sketched, and the video offers a fascinating glimpse of his process.
Like Nelvana of the Northern Lights and Brok Windsor, Johnny Canuck is one of the lost Canadian comic heroes of the 1940s, a time when American comics weren’t allowed into Canada because of restrictions on non-essential trade. Long out of print, a new generation may get to enjoy his adventures thanks to this Kickstarter.
