Batgirl No. 24 by AlexGarner Batgirl No. 24 by AlexGarner
Cover to Batgirl #24.

After studying his work last month, this piece is a bit of a nod to Mike Mignola whom I personally think is the best in the biz at cover composition. And while it doesn't even come close to a Mignola composition, it's now a month later and I still don't hate this cover. That's a victory of sorts I guess. Thanks for the inspiration Mike!

All the covers of the Batgirl: Wanted series are beautiful, but this one has to be my favourite. I remember when I first saw the cover and I thought the body was James Gordon Jr, but after reading Batgirl 23, I saw this cover again and realised it was Ricky. It broke my heart into even more tiny pieces and you know what? I didn't need emotions anyway.

the red head is Barbara gordon aka Batgiel, The man in the back is commissioner Gordon he just shot Barbs boyfriend. The story is she meant her bf as batgirl,. save his ass few times. He wanted to fix a new life for him self after being save from his gang life, So he starting doing that.Also  He was falling for Batgirl. she like him back as well.. so she decide to meet him as barbs, and make sure he didnt know she was batgirl, any how they hit it off..

but gordon has become obsessives after his son die.. he found out that this kid has connection to batgirl. So he went after him, but at the same time the b/f  brother or cousin..was kidnap.. so the bf went after the gang member who had him. The bf pointed a gun at the gang member who was going to shot at his brother/cousin , commisoner gordon jump in and shot the boyfriend.

Absolutely amazing! I love the shading and her eyes! :heart:

And after looking through the comments to see if anyone said who she's holding, it seems I'll just have to pretend it's Dick for all of time. :stare:

Those are some intense hands and eyes on Barbara. I love the way you've framed her face with her hair... it's almost glowing with intensity. Wonderful work!

Saw this the other day in the DC Oct. solicits list and it blew me away with how beautiful, not to mention emotionally tragic, it is.

Love how Barbara is shown completely out of costume and given her death glare how Jim may have descended to the depths Batman was worried about. Really makes me hyped for the issue. :nod:
