Mike Maihack created another Batgirl/Supergirl comic (a continuation from his previous comic featuring Supergirl’s never-ending closet of costumes), wherein the ladies discuss the origin of Barbara’s costume and what she’s wearing underneath hers.
Spoiler alert: Everyone has a crush on Batman. And that is pretty much why Bat-shirts are so darn popular.
A little 6-panel SUPERGIRL/BATGIRL comic. For fun. And because I love the characters. And Because Nate Cosby wouldn’t stop bugging me until I drew one.
You can read waaaay too much thinking into this HERE.
Mike Maihack created this fantastic 6-panel comic that perfectly sums up Supergirl’s collection of iconic costumes over the years. I really loved his commentary on Kara’s ever-changing style during the seventies in particular:
"I really love how in the seventies Kara would change outfits almost every issue. It just makes sense in some odd teenaged superheroie kinda way. I grew up with two younger sisters that had more shoes in their closet than I had shirts. One look is not enough. And I think because of how iconic the colors and symbolization of Supergirl are (and because she’s already had so many different looks anyhow) she’s one of the few characters that could get always with it on a monthly title. Okay, maybe the logistics don’t make sense. Maybe on top of the ability to fly and pummel bad guys into the earth, the yellow sun also made Kara an excellent seamstress. Or Martha Kent showed her how. Or Martha Kent makes them FOR her. Whatever the reason, I would bring that back. And I think it says a lot about her personality too.” [link]
Conclusively, DC Comics needs to hire Mike Maihack to launch a SUPERGIRL/BATGIRL series, f’realzies. Get on it, people.
This is just too darn CUTE! I’m not crazy about the cropped top, but I love the pleated skirt and the matching boots and gloves. The hooded cape balances the silhouette of the skirt quite impeccably. The pointed cuffs on the red knee high boots almost resemble Wonder Woman’s boots, though I could totally see cute red ankle boots working with this redesign as well. I love the matching yellow detailing on the ankles and wrists, however the stripes almost remind me of Plastic Man (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing…).
