The response to the new Batgirl costume exceeds even my wildest expectations, and there’s no greater evidence of its popularity than the (literally) hundreds of pieces of fan art that have been generated in just a few short days. Believe me when I say that I love every single one - if you have taken the time to draw a piece and post it, you have my enormous respect, admiration and gratitude. You’re all amazing. You can see all of them (or as many as I can keep up with posting) over at batgirlofburnside.tumblr.com
But I thought I would showcase the pieces that really caught my eye. It was so incredibly hard to narrow this list down. In no particular order:
Simple but striking. Even better was his response on twitter when someone commented on the bloody nose - “You should have seen the other guy.”

Just a beautiful piece that captures everything we want to express about the new Batgirl. Special mention for the terrific, hot colours and the perfect rendering of the boots.
Love this simple, elegant drawing.
Ron’s painting of Batgirl and Spider-Gwen (beautifully designed by Robbi Rodriguez) comparing footwear made my day.
I’m biased because Becky is my friend and one of my favorite artists, but this quiet moment with Barbara is stunning.
Simple, beautiful curves and rich colours make this one a winner.
OUCH. Those boots are good for something.
Straight out of a Pixar “Art Of” book.
Speaking of animation, this is a lovely little GIF.
Absolutely jaw-dropping. When she saw this Babs' response was “Welp, I quit.”
An absolutely pitch-perfect t-shirt design and one that I hope becomes official very soon.
If you’re not on this list, I apologize, and once again, I love every single piece, please please keep them coming. You all are incredible.
