Batgirl in “Time Crash”Comments about this page

By David Marshall December 20th, 2014 Categories: Post |

(G; Superhero) With the help of a time-traveling alien, Barbara Gordon visits her older self.

My lastest drawing Batgirl in “Time Crash” is in Dark Knight on a Dark Night, an annual exhibit of Batman-related art hosted by Hub Comics. Opening reception December 20, 6:00-8:00pm. Art will be on display though January 2015. See you there!

In the meantime, please enjoy Yvonne Craig explaination of her character’s sexy but illogical fighting style in a 1983 Comics Scene interview:

Kicking thugs in the face or knocking them over the head with break-away objects was as tough as Batgirl was allowed to be, since [show producer Howie Horwitz] was insistent she not be modeled after Honey West (Anne Francis) or The Avengers’ Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), two contemporary TV heroines he felt were lacking in femininity. Batgirl was not to do any karate, kung fu, any sort of martial arts-type stuff. That wasn’t ladylike to him.

Full art and more background info on the comic page.
