Dustin Nguyen Joins Bryan Q. Miller For Batgirl

Who doesn't love Nguyen's art? His work from the very first issue of Batman: Streets of Gotham has been amazing, and he hasn't let us down with any issue, even when the writing dipped, the highlight was the art.

So, it gives me great pleasure to discover that he will be stepping in as series regular for Bryan Q. Miller's consistently awesome run on Batgirl. The Source broke the news early Friday morning that Dustin Nguyen will be starting his Batgirl duties in November and provided us with a couple of quotes from the involved parties.

From Nguyen:
This is definitely going to be an exciting venture for me, besides the outline Bryan has for us, i’m just plain excited to be drawing Batgirl,” Nguyen said. “This latest incarnation of her has lots of the aesthetics of the original Babs that i love and some new ones. It’ll take me some getting used to drawing a female in horns, but i’m looking forward to putting away the “mean and moody” for a while and kick in the ‘fun and sexy.
From Miller:
Dustin’s joining the team at JUST the right time, as BATGIRL: THE LESSON begins. Steph’s world is going to get a smidge more gritty, a skosh more chaotic, and LOADS more dangerous - Dustin’s the perfect man to help tell this tale! And, as an added bonus, Dustin’s on the ground floor for the creation of Steph’s very own gallery of rogues (So, there’s that to look forward to, too!) Consider his cover to Batgirl #15 one of the last truly quiet moments our Batgirl is going to have for quite a while. But she’s ready for it - you can tell from the look on her face. That’s Steph for you — always smiling! 
I can honestly say that I will miss Lee Garbett's art, but Garbett will be moving on to something that is apparently top secret, and I can't wait to see how that unfolds. Also, I'm dying to see what Nguyen brings to the table. Judging by the cover of Batgirl #15, I don't think we have anything to worry about.

But what do you guys think? Love Nguyen, hate him? Let us know!
