PING! PING! PING!

The third and fourth pages of Fsbot’s Cassandra Cain versus Scarecrow mini comic colored by myself. Last we left her, she’s been gassed with Fear toxin! Not one-hundred percent done, but almost? Let me know what you think! First two colored pages of short comic here. Click above picture for HQ.

Fsbot:

Here are the scenes in clockwise order, starting from the bottom left:

-Cassandra’s first kill as a child and when she first understood death. She killed the man by digging her fingers into his neck and ripping out his throat.

-The “death” of Stephanie Brown.

-Lady Shiva. This was a little difficult, because there’s no official look for Shiva. She used to be white, now she’s asian. Her hair changes and she has no official outfit.

-Deathstroke with the drug he used to manipulate Cass.

-Evil Cass, killing some poor lady

-Abandonment issues.

Pages 3 and 4 of the Cass/Scarecrow Comic, after Cassandra inhaled some fear gas.

For elaborate, here are the scenes in clockwise order, starting from the bottom left:

-Cassandra’s first kill as a child and when she first understood death. She killed the man by digging her fingers into his neck and ripping out his throat.

-The death of Stephanie Brown.

-Lady Shiva. This was a little difficult, because there’s no official look for Shiva. She used to be white, now she’s asian. Her hair changes and she has no official outfit.

-Deathstroke with the drug he used to manipulate Cass.

-Evil Cass, killing some poor lady

Ohmygod this is heartbreakingly lovely ;~; <3

One of my all-time favorite scenes from Batgirl #72 (the second to last issue of Cassandra’s run). Shiva knows what a hero is - and it’s not her, it’s Cass.

Adam Beechan once said he read the last issues of Batgirl before he made “Evil Cass” in Robin, but I have a hard time believing it. How do you go from this to becoming an Asian Dragon Lady stereotype given to James Bond speechifying and a love of killing (not to mention the suddenly being fluent in Navajo thing). If Beechan is epic fail, then Andersen Gabrych’s run was epic success. 

The fact that Beechan was given a Batgirl mini-series after he destroyed the character instead of Gabrych or her sorta-creator Kelley Puckett (who WAS doing work with DC at the time) says everything about what DC thought/thinks about the character.
