Well, a ton, dear Source reader. Too much to capably sum up in one blog post. It's also way too early to give too much away. But, we can showcase some of the lovely artwork gracing the covers of the Bat-titles hitting in February, featuring the talents of Frank Quitely, Dustin Nguyen, Phil Noto and many more. So, take another bite of your lunch and look 'em over. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Next to the job interview, the next most-stressful thing when it comes to work is your first day. Am I right? Well, imagine if your gig didn't involve sitting at a desk, but jumping around on the rooftops of Gotham's seedier neighborhoods? Welcome to Stephanie Brown's new role as Batgirl. And, as she'll soon learn, it takes a lot more to wear the mantle of the Bat than she originally thought. From the regular team of writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Lee Garbett comes a tale of learning the ropes and frat parties. I kid you not.
Stephanie Brown – you might recognize her from such “hits” as: 1. Becoming Spoiler to literally rebel against her father (Cluemaster). 2. Dating Tim (Wayne) when he was still Tim (Drake)… actually, when he was Alvin Draper. But she only knew him as Robin at the time. But later she found out Robin was really Tim (Drake) who was pretending to be Alvin Draper.
As crime in Gotham continues to escalate, the newest member of the Batman family vows to wear the mantle of the Bat and fight alongside the Dynamic Duo in their war on crime.

BATGIRL #3 hits on 10/14. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
It's the middle of the week, and you can almost taste the weekend, huh? So, what better way to expedite things than a lovely piece of Phil Noto artwork? Here's the cover to January's BATGIRL #6, which from what I can tell, will feature a certain Dynamic Duo crossing paths with the new Batgirl. Doesn't look like it'll be a pleasant exchange either.
Good morning DC Nation, although I'm guessing it'll be afternoon by the time most of you read this. I'm working my way through LA meeting with our writers and artists to discuss what's coming up in your favorite books for 2010.
As the new Batgirl continues her nightly mission, the mystery of her secret identity intensifies. Now she has become the target of both Gotham City's heroes (can you say "Oracle"?) and its villains. Now that you know who the new Batgirl is and you've seen her new costume, all the more reason to head down to your shop and follow Stephanie Brown's ongoing adventures, no? BATGIRL #2, from the team of writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Lee Garbett, hits tomorrow. [gallery link="file"]
