Okay, this is just spectacular – Designer and illustrator Rory Phillips‘ reimagining of DC’s Birds of Prey, from the Superhero of The Month blog:
I re-imagined Birds of Prey as a ‘Vigilante Scooter Club’: Tough and sporty roller derby-type girls with DIY costumes that are functional, but also fashionable enough for Gotham’s trendiest dive bars. For a smart, design-conscious woman like Barbara Gordon, a utility belt just isn’t very stylish. Instead she has a more functional and fashionable messenger bag, with plenty of room for a Bat-laptop, Bat-tazer, Bat-tonfa, and any other Bat-device the plot might require, and her scooter is festooned with a variety of high tech electronics. Black Canary plays Punk to Batgirl’s Mod; the fishnets are more about attitude than sexuality. An experienced and dangerous street-fighter, she isn’t afraid to use brass-knuckles or kubotan to keep the odds in her favor, and boxing wraps help keep her knuckles protected from even the hardest skulls. These two might not see eye to eye on technology and fashion, but they do agree, jump-boots are excellent for kicking you in the face. These characters are smart, strong and empowered, I wanted the design and style to reflect that.
Hey, DC! Can we have an Earth-3 book featuring these two, please…?
