UPDATED: BATGIRL CONTEST!!!!!

Hey guys, with the awesome help of Batgirl and Smallville scribe, Bryan Q. Miller, we are now able to offer a CONTEST!! We've been wanting to do a contest for quite some time, but we just haven't had the resources. But guys, this is incredibly awesome.

Thanks to Bryan Q. Miller and Dustin Nguyen, we are able to offer to you framed Dustin Nguyen art! Yes, I know! It's an original Lil' Gotham piece that was adapted for this week's Batgirl #18 with Lil' Klarion, Lil' Teekl, and Lil' Steph! If you're having a hard time wrapping your brain around how awesome this is, look below.

YEAH!!!
BUT WAIT! There's more!
Not only will you get this beautiful 5x9 piece of original artwork, but you'll also get the actual comic book in the frame. Side by side. I'm not sure if they will be autographed, but still.. that's a pretty sweet deal, right!? Oh wait, what's that? EVEN MORE!? YES! In addition to the gorgeous framed art and comic book, Bryan Q. Miller, in conjunction with Gotham, Inc. will be throwing in a brand new Stephanie Brown (as Batgirl) action figure!

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is leave a comment on this article! I'd also suggest telling as many people as you can, even though the winner will be chosen completely at random (no Tim and Justin, you can't win this!)

The ground rules? Like I said, just leave a comment on this article saying that you want the art, and that's all you have to do! Although, I would suggest saying what you love about the series (it shouldn't be difficult) and also, maybe tweeting or emailing us a picture of the issue when you buy it, because you are going to want to read that issue, I guarantee it. The contest starts RIGHT NOW and ends at.. hmm.. let's say right before Smallville airs on the west coast? How does that sound? The winner will be chosen over that weekend and will be notified a week from today, so that's February 14 (Valentine's Day!), 2011. Who could ask for a better treat!? Also, It should take about two weeks to get everything out and to your address of choice.

Seriously guys and gals, your Valentine can be either Stephanie Brown, Klarion the Witch Boy, or even Teekl, if that's what you're in to! It's totally up to you!

Okay, I'm not stupid, I know a lot of you guys that are seeing don't visit the site often, and probably don't listen to the podcast either, I get that. But I did want to take this opportunity of fresh faces to let you know about a local comic books store here in Murfreesboro, TN that caught fire a couple of weeks ago, burned to the ground, and pretty much lost everything. They're are named Outer Limits-Murfreesboro, and you can find their website at outerlimitsboro.com, so PLEASE go to their site, twitter, and Facebook, and show them some support, and if you can donate or anything, please do. Again, this isn't required or anything, I just wanted to take this opportunity to help.

By the way, to whoever wins this, I hate you! I want this sooo bad! Still though, Batgirl original art from Dustin Nguyen, a comic, and an action figure! Let's do this, you have until Friday!

So let's break this down, one last time:


What you do:

1) Comment
2) Wait a week or so (do something productive while you're waiting, y'know like buying Batgirl #18 and sending us pics of you and the book through email or twitter)
3) Get notified (maybe)
4) Profit!

What you get:


1) Batgirl #18 by Bryan Q. Miller and Dustin Nguyen (framed)
2) 5x9 Lil' Gotham original art from Dustin Nguyen inspired by Batgirl #18 cover
3) Batgirl (Stephanie Brown) action figure

Good luck, Gothamites!!!!

UPDATE!!!!!! The contest IS open internationally! Literally anyone on planet earth, except for the hosts of the podcast, have a chance of winning!

  1. I like Batgirl almost as much as I like Bryan Q. Miller!

  2. Stephanie Brown Batgirl was my FIRST D*C costume worn at a convention, Fan Expo Canada 2010 to be precise. If THIS isn't Batgirl love, I don't know what is! <3

    ReplyDelete
  3. Batgirl is one of my favorite ongoing at the moment.

    Loved Steph as Spoiler, loved her as Robin and I love her even more as Batgirl.

    Q and Dustin make one outstanding team.

  4. Comment: left. Consider that art wanted.

    Seriously now, Mr Nguyen is one of my faves in the industry right now, let the DC awesomeness keep coming from him! Pretty please?

  5. I'd do almost anything for some Batgirl art. Nguyen's artwork has been absolutely amazing on this book, making it that much better. And it was already pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I have been very impressed in the artwork so far in Batgirl. The stories have the same vibe as the early part of the Power Girl run. Can't wait to see what happens next now, especially with the Damien interaction in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The new Batgirl series brought me back to buying monthly books. Love this series, and Dustin's art is awesome. Want, please!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would love to win this even though my best friend would be pretty mad at me since he's Dustin's number one fan!Batgirl is awesome

    ReplyDelete
  16. I want the art! I'll do something productive while I wait and hopefully get nofity to gain profit. =*)

    ReplyDelete
  17. That Q has been able to take a maligned, dead-then-not character like Steph and make her one of the most likable characters in the DCU, while creating a stable of fantastic character relationships that unfold like a TV show is a huge accomplishment. Art by Nguyen and Lee Garbett doesn't hurt either.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Where Duss goes I follow. Dustin Nguyen art is straight fire and just gangsta. ha. Send me some Batgirl awesome please.

    Tanks.

  19. Okay, controversial, but...

    I read Batgirl because it's a better 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' style comic (at least in terms of consistent good issues) than the Buffy comic itself!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. OOOH, OOH, OOOH!!! PICK ME, MISTAH KOTTA!!! This would be a sick addition to anybodys collection....Good luck, everyone!!

  23. Want it! So sorry to here about the LCS! I will help spread the word!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love this piece and ADORE Dustin Nguyen's art style and how he does chibis, I wish I was as good at using watercolors as he is.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fantastic Idea!
    I love Nguyen's work and hope as many people as possible get access to it :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my stars, do I ever want this art! Steph Brown has been nothing but delightful since the start of her Batgirl series. I love her supporting cast, I love her relationships with the rest of the Bat family, but most most of all I love her! Batgirl is consistently the book I'm most excited about buying :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm just hoping this is an international contest because I'd probably pee my pants if I SOMEHOW got to win it. It's pretty hard to get any comic books around here not to mention great original art...
    I'm a fan of Dustin's work, wish I was at least half as good as he is.
    Anyways... good luck to everyone :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I want to win! Dustin Nguyen is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I do love Nguyen's work! And I love Batgirl, so this is a win-win situation.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dustin's work is awesome, no harm in giving this a go!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love waffles! I also love the art! :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love Dustin Nguyen's art! His watercolors are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks a lot for this contest. Even if I don't win, there's no reason for me not to try my luck, especially if the prize is a piece of art from one of my favourite artists.
    I'd like to read more Batgirl comics because it's a character I'm interested in, and I don't have many comics featuring her... And I love Klarion.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Dustin Nguyen is amazing. His work on the bat family has been astounding. Miller has been knocking it out of the park on this series too. Cannot wait to read this issue when it hits! Would love to get my hands on that art too!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bat girl is easily my favorite bat-family ongoing. Most of that is thanks to Dustin Nguyen's art. He really captures Steph's personality. When I reading I feel like I'm not just seeing her but I'm seeing the way she sees Gotham. Nguyen has the ability to turn gotham into an exciting city full of fun and adventure; worlds away from Bruce's cess pit of crime and human suffering. That is impressive as Gotham, more than any other city in the DC universe is identified with one character.

    Owning an actual piece of art from a series I love so dearly would be a dream come true. I'm opening a comic shop of my own that focuses on getting young readers into comics. Nguyen's Batgirl perfectly represents the world that I want kids to be apart of when they read. This would look great on our wall. I would really love to win!

    Good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  36. This contest looks almost too good to be true, kind of like Dustin Nguyen's art, and Batgirl herself! ;)
    I would like to participate in this contest, please! I can't WAIT to guy this issue! You shall be tweeted so other people get a great chance of winning, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Art from my favorite Bat series and one of my favorite artists? Yes please!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That art is so adorable. :3
    Dustin is such a great artist...and I am very pleased with the direction Batgirl is taking.
    Although, I'm still hoping for Dustin to do the art for Zatanna...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think the Batgirl series is going along well, but I i usually buy the singles for the covers. The same goes for batman beyond. Dustin's traditional covers are very eye catching and I would love an original piece of work

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can't even describe what it would be like to win this. I've loved the new Batgirl ever since she premiered in I think like issue nine. Her new costume is so awesome, it's the first one any Batgirl has ever had that's made me give the character a second look. And of course, I've been a fan of Dustin's since well before he started doing these covers. I really hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can never get enough of Dustin's watercolors. Want!

    ReplyDelete
  42. The best part of the recent Batgirl comic books is the artwork by Dustin!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite thing about the series used to be how relatable Stephanie is and how believable her character arc is, but this cover is one more reason why these days it's the art. I would love to win that.

    ReplyDelete
  44. awesome piece of art!!!
    irishcahbomb@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  45. I thoroughly enjoy Bryan's work on Batgirl--and I LOVE Dustin's covers

    I'm keeping all my fingers crossed for this one x__x I want!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Batgirl maybe the the only ongoing I buy anymore. Stephanie is my absolute favorite Batgirl, such a realistic character. I've worn both her Spoiler and robin costumes to many conventions. Dustin is such an inspiration,his work is such a breath of fresh air.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I want that piece just because I love everything Miller, Dustin and Batty!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That little klarion face is just too adorable to miss out on, even if he is a little twisted so and so~

    ReplyDelete
  49. I want it!

    The reason I love Batgirl so much, is the gorgeous artwork and Stephanie's strong character. The stories are such a joy to read.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. I've been loving Bryan Q. Miller's Batgirl since the first issue. I didn't know much about Steph as a character, but Miller really made me fall in love thy the series! Dustin Nguyen's artwork on topof amazing story writing pushes this book to the brink of awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Batgirl and Red Robin are definitely the top two Bat-books on the market right now! (Please Grant Morrison, don't shoot me for saying that...)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I want the art! Love Dustin's work and this story by Miller sounds interesting! This week will actually be such a workload for me. 2 midterm exams, a research report, and a lab practical! Being productive of my education, I guess!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hey gentlemen,

    Just wanted to say what an AMAZING contest you guys have managed to set up for your listeners. First, it's an awe inspiring piece of artwork, but then again what else would we expect from Dustin Nguyen. Second, Batgirl has quickly become one of my favorite "Bat-Books" since it's launch. I'm the first to admit that I wasn't a big Stephanie/Spoiler fan upon her introduction and even less so with her turn as Robin, but since dawning the mantle of Batgirl, under the pen of of Bryan Q Miller, she's become one of the better supporting cast members of the Bat-Family.

    And I'm not talking about just her growth as a character, but also how she interacts with those around her. From her sisterly relationship with Damian, to her admiration of Bruce and respect for Tim and Dick, she's truly got a unique synergy with the rest of the DC universe thanks to Mr. Miller and his understanding of the character and her motivations.

    While I obviously hope to win this prize, I'm honestly excited and happy for whoever would win.

    Best wishes and regards,

    ReplyDelete
  93. I wants it! It just looks absolutely amazing~

    ReplyDelete
  94. Brian Q Miller, Dustin Nguyen, and Stephanie Brown are my DC trinity!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Dustin Nguyen draws the cutest characters and I love him. Bryan Q. Miller write the cutest stories and I love him. Stephanie Brown is the cutest Batgirl and I love her.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Would love to win this piece, Dustin's art makes everything sing, and has been especially charming on Batgirl!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love this piece and I absolutely love Batgirl. The continuing growth of Steph is fantaaaaastic. c:

    ReplyDelete
  98. That is adorable. Mr. Nguyen should obviously draw more kitties. Can Steph give Damian one? It's the only way I can think to make their brother-sister relationship in Batgirl better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh man. I totally want that.

    Dustin Nguyen is probably my favourite artist ever!

    Here's hoping!!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love this series and all the Nguyen art I've seen so far! I wish I'd had Steph's Batfamily overview from Batgirl 15 when I was explaining the history of the Robins to my friend. I love Stephanie Brown and if I don't win the art, any chance you'll give away a few of those action figures? Everything Batgirl sells out too fast!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I want everything about this.

    EVERYTHING.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Taking Steph and giving her a spirit and the character that was lacking in previous incarnations of the character is full of win.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Dustin Nguyen is my watercolor hero and I would love this piece!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm really liking the book so far, although being it the only DC title I buy, sometimes I get kind of lost on references, but it's a nice book starring a young female hero and you can actually read it without fear of "landmines".

    ReplyDelete
  105. I want this. Terribly. Like, like an elephant wants people to stop shoving mice at him to see if he is afraid, want. More than that, even, I just like elephants.
    I adore Batgirl and Dustin Nguyen's art, and haven't even started collecting figures yet, but a Steph!Batgirl figure, some gorgeous art and an amazing comic would not be a bad way to start. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  106. I didn't think I could love Steph more until she became Batgirl! And then pairing her with some of my favorite artists, especially Dustin has made Batgirl the consistent highlight of my month! I can't wait for my issue to come in! Batgirl <3 <3 <3

    ReplyDelete
  107. Yeah, I love this, Mr.Nguyen is a personal inspiration to me, it's because of his art that I decided to follow my dreams, his work is incredible and this another truly inspired piece.

    His work on Batgirl is incredible and as ab artist I can say his cover pages are some of the most interesting and visually pleasing out there.

    ReplyDelete
  108. AHHH, KLARION THE WITCH BOY FROM MAGIC TOWN! Ohhhhh so adorable!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. A'baaaaaw, bitty Batgirl. X3
    DO WANT. -grabby hands-
    Love me some Duss art, man, seriously. He makes me want to work more with the watercolor/acrylic medium

    ReplyDelete
  110. I want this so bad!!!
    Love Stephanie Brown as batgirl

    ReplyDelete
  111. must have this! been a fan of Steph since she appeared in Robin, have always loved Dustin's art work, its fun and playful, but he is also able to show great emotion. i would forever be greatful for winning this

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love Batgirl, Dustin and every combination of these things.

    I recently ran this contest: http://girlsreadcomics.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/contest-batgirl-rising/ which included signed copies of Batgirl and me buying two trades for people and it was SO FRUSTRATING in some ways, as I wasn't able to have any of it myself. But I'm a huge fan and love publicising the book and will spread the word about this contest! (Even though I want to win!)

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love Stephanie Brown. I loved her as Spoiler and I loved her as Robin. Seeing her flourish and grow in Batgirl, seeing her given the respect and stability she deserves, has made me so incredibly happy.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would love this so hard!

    I just got into comics somewhat recently - Batgirl #9 was one of the first ones I ever picked up. Bryan's writing made me completely fall in love and the combo of amazing writing and art is why it's the only Bat book that I buy every month. I went from not really knowing who anyone was to in love with Stephanie Brown immediately!

    As for Dustin, his work is just ridiculously good. It would be such an honor to have an original from him ^__^ This series of Batgirl covers is some of the best coverwork that I've seen!

    <3

    ReplyDelete
  115. I would love to have some of Dustin's painted art and this piece looks great. I want it.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I would love to get this art.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I very much so want that art, I've been a huge fan of Nguyen's art since him and Dini teamed up a couple of years ago on Detective Comics. He's my favorite of all the current Batman artists.

    ReplyDelete
  118. In the words of Larfleeze, Mine!!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Batgirl is my favorite ongoing series right now, it would be amazing to win some of Dustin's art!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've loved Nguyen's art for years, and have been so thrilled that he's joined Team Batgirl--hands-down one of the best books coming out. I'd love to have this piece.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I would freaking LOVE this art. Nguyen may or may not be my artistic hero and this is just gorgeous. <3 I'm impressed by their generosity too!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I want this prize soooo bad! Nguyen's work is really inspiring, and anything Batman related is really cool. Batman and Batman related comics always get interesting teams to do them.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I am extremely interested.
    After losing Dustin's giveaway contest on deviantART by a hair, he knows I've been going at his neck for another chance to win, so yes, I would like an entry in this contest.

    As for Batgirl, I've been reading from the start and loving every minute of it. Lee Garbett and Dustin Nyguen have been great artists to match Brian Miller's creative story lines. This is that one comic book you don't need to pick up but you just want to. Highly recommended.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Steph is the entire reason I started reading DC in the first place. And she's kind of my "life is full of second chances themed" hero. So thank so so so much for hosting this contest!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I looooove Nguyen's art, and some good ol' Batgirl.

    ReplyDelete
  126. This is so so awesome!
    I will most definitely be picking up the issue of Batgirl, and I would love love love the piece of artwork, it's so lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Do want! Stephanie is my favourite Batgirl! :D

    ReplyDelete
  128. I'll also enter for trying to get this badboy or should I say bad/tgirl?.

    I collect art, sorta, and am a big fan of Stephanie. Dustin's art style is so very adorable and Batgirl has indeed been the most fun Bat-title of late.

    ReplyDelete
  129. It's great that Steph is getting such recognition!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Holy crap. That's a great prize. I'd love all that stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Dustin's art is LOVE<3 So is batgirl! Do want please(:

    ReplyDelete
  132. I WANT IT I WANT IT

    Anything by Dustin is awesome, and I've always wanted an action figure!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Batgirl's been my springboard into Batman (and DC as a whole) over the past year, and I've fallen in love with both Steph and Dustin's art. My mind, she cannot handle all this awesome in one book :(

    ReplyDelete
  134. I LOVE Dustin Nguyen, however, my girlfriend is THE Dustin #1 fan! So I want it SO BAD to give to her! Can't think of any better Valentine's gift!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I love all Dustin's work, especially when it comes to the Bat Family. Plus that Klarion looks adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I WANT THAT ART. Batgirl is one of the best surprises of the past year, went in not really knowing what to expect and got something great. One of DC's best books over the past year and I've always really enjoyed Dustin's art so him on the book is great.

  137. First at all, say thanks to Dustin N'Guyen himself who writes in his deviantart journal we had the possibility to win this art ! And what art ! Of course, with Batgirl on it and shiny colours. But what else ? Klarion, that i discovered with Seven soldiers of Victory and so i'll be happy again to see him again. I follow Dustin art because i love it, specially since he draws Batgirl because we really have the sensation it takes a lot of pleasure. So, enjoy again his work and good luck to everybody !
    Salut !

  139. I absolutely love Dustin's art, so him + Steph is just a win-win situation :) I think my favourite thing about Batgirl is that, of all the Batfam members, Steph seems to have grown the most, but she's still kept her lighthearted personality, and she's just so damn funny and chipper, despite all the crap she's gone through :P And then the art has always been amazing, and I almost want to frame the comics and hang them on my wall. 'Cept then it'd be a pain when I want to reread them (and I reread Batgirl A LOT) :D

  140. I am a huge fan of Steph- I run a Stephanie Brown wiki and Bryan Q. Miller and I have corresponded, I did a whole series on her in scans_daily, the list goes on- I really love her! And Dustin Nguyen's artwork is astounding, as is Bryan Q. Miller's work on the character. So I would really love this a lot if I won. It's fantastic.

  141. Want Want Want! Dustin Nguyen's art on Batgirl (and elsewhere) has been amazing, and I really love the book. Good luck to everyone.

  144. It would be so cool to win this. Batgirl is my favorite heroine. And Dustin's art always amazes.

  145. This issue will be a total win with Klarion and Batgirl! Just like it will be a total win if I'm the one pick for the prize!

  146. I was skeptical on getting Steph!Batgirl because I loved Cass and knew they were totally different. I held off for weeks on buying it. But once I saw that Dustin was doing covers for it I started buying the series regularly. Now I'm getting a hold of all the other issues I've missed! Can't wait for this one to be out! I want the issue, the artwork, and the action figure! Steph is definitely not Cass but she is one badass bat nonetheless!

  147. I haven't been into comic books for terribly long, but I have been with the Stephanie Brown Batgirl from the beginning and have loved every panel of sexy crime-fighting action. The dialogue of Stephanie Brown I find immensely enjoyable and laugh out loud fun! For a long time I have eyed Streets of Gotham for the fantastic artwork of Dustin Nguyen, but being the poor college student I am just couldn't afford both SoG and Batgirl together. Having Nguyen doing artwork for Batgirl has been like a dream come true!

    Anyhow, I would love to win this awesome prize, if I should be so fortunate...

  151. I never really followed Steph until the Batgirl series, but she has quickly become my favourite DC comics character.

  152. Things I love:
    1. Batgirl
    2. Lil' Gotham
    3. Waffles

    It would be so cool to win that art. If I don't win I'm going to be super jealous of whoever does!

  153. I love Batgirl and want this so bad! Not only is the comic awesome but to have someone like Dustin illustrating for it is amazing! His art is fantastic and is what inspired me to pursue illustration when I go to college. He is Kick-A and I hope to one day be as awesome as him.

  156. I didn't start reading Batgirl until recently, but I'm loving it. I've been hearing good things about it for a while, but when Dustin Nguyen became the artist I just couldn't resist adding it to my comic pile anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I love Batgirl because she's an awesome, kick-ass girl, but she's still so human, and she actually acts her age. Such a rare gem in Comics. Miller and Nguyen are really knocking it out of the park.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I want this!

    Stephanie is my favorite character ever. Period. I was in love with her long before she became Batgirl--back when hardly anyone even knew who she was, let alone liked her!

    Now, seeing her as Batgirl and getting the recognition she deserves is amazing. When I heard Dustin was going to be taking over the art on Batgirl, I was overjoyed like you wouldn't believe! He is one of my favorite artists and he draws the cutest Steph. It just made the whole thing even more perfect.

  162. This contest has officially blown my mind.
    I love Dustin Nguyen's art and I <3 everything Batman. The Batgirl series is one of my favourites of the new Bat-family (along with Red Robin).

    Crossing my fingers I win!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I definitely want this. Mr. Nguyen is such an inspiration and the new Batgirl really got me into comic books again <3

    ReplyDelete
  164. Do want!
    Dustin is an inspiring artist and this alone is enough to raise a hand for this piece. But as a fan of the Bat family I raise my other hand too. (and make a grabby grabby gesture)

    Ich hoff ich hab mal Glück bei so nem Wettbewerb. Ich kaufe mir eh lieber die original issues aus Amerika als die Übersetzungen hierzulande.

  165. I think Nguyen is really one of the most underrated Batman artists. Unique style and solid cartooning.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Oh my god! This is so exciting. I really hope I win this. Batgirl is one of my favourite new series. The writing and art is just brilliant. And Dustin Nguyen is one of my most adored artists ever.

  170. Dustin is a great artist and it is a fantastic piece.

  171. So, I work at a comic book store and watch Dustin on DA, so I usually see him post the pictures of the covers he does there. It pleases me very much to basically see one of his actual covers first in our town as our store is the only comic book store in the town.
    I'm so excited that there is this contest to participate in, and regardless of outcome I shall be purchasing the comics as I always have been~

  172. Pick me I have a lovely wall that needs some pretty art.

  173. fffffff this would be so cool to win : DDDD I love Dustin's art :)

  174. I really love this!

    Dustin Nguyen IS my Batman artist. His renditions and mini-Bat characters are the funnest and cutest things from DC. And Dustin's a nice guy. I really appreciate the time we had talking about his art at SDCC last year. Keep up the good work!!!

    And Bryan, your Stephanie Brown is joyous and never depressive. Way to reinvigorate and make a Batgirl fun! Stay in comics, people like you are greatly needed and welcomed!

  175. yeah for dustin on any batbook is great, add klarion to the mix and I am a very happy fan.

  176. Looks awesome, and I can't wait to read the issue!

  177. Man you guys are amazing and I LOVE me some Klarion (The Witch Boy)

  178. What a great contest. Someone is going to be super lucky. :)

  179. I would love to win this prize!

    I always felt bad for Steph and how she was treated in DC until I started reading Batgirl. That girl does not need my pity! Her spirit and never-say-die attitude are a welcome contrast to the Batfamily's usual dour atmosphere.

    And the series has been blessed with consistently amazing art the whole way. Dustin Nguyen's art so perfectly represents Stephanie's energy and youth that every month I get more and more excited by the prospect of having that cover in my collection.

  180. Batgirl, yes! Stephanie Brown is such an inspiring character. I've only just recently gotten into the Batman franchise, but I can say I've already fallen in love with these characters. All I can say is that it's been a rough week for my high school, though I'd rather not get into the gritty details. So I thought I'd leave a comment looking for a miracle, and maybe I'd lend the prizes to a friend who needs cheering up more than me. If not, I'd just like to say that your work is wonderful and keep it up! It always makes me smile when artists are so nice to their fans, and I'm just happy to see you all doing what you love best :)

  181. I've been looking for a good place to start reading Batgirl, then I read Klarion was going to show up & I knew I'd have to get on board earlier than expected. Looking forward to this issue very much.

  182. Haven't heard of this site before this contest, great idea!
