DC Comics' New 52 brought a lot changes but one that had a huge impact was bringing Barbara Gordon back to the super hero field.. Any Barbara Gordon fan has to agree that the her best stories were told wen she was Oracle but by making her Batgirl this might seem like a step back to a lot of people. Right now it might be too early to tell if her new status quo will bring stories as good as when she was Oracle but for now lets accept the fact that Babs is back under the cowl.
In the New 52 universe Babs was once tied down to a wheelchair but she is now free to use her legs and fight Gotham's crime once again. Gail Simone has showcased this new Batgirl as somewhat careless in her delicate state, but who wouldn't run, jump and more the moment you regain use of your legs?
There is a satisfaction to not be tied down anymore and it shows. I wanted to show that satisfaction in my drawing and I tried to convey that. Let me know how I did:
PS. This was originally made for Artist Show-Off Showdown #81 but I didn't have a scanner 'till now.
