Interesting Batgirl related trend lately
 
I'm sure most of you know about Batgirl's turn to evil, and since she's involved in the upcoming Titans East, this is on topic.

Anyway, for the last few months, there has been a trend of sorts among embittered Batgirl fans. Not simply complaining, but making cartoons/ comic strips about it.

The original concept is a simple comic strip that we called "Casstoons", mainly written by myself and drawn by a guy on another forum. We literally made hundreds of these since May, and while we generally link the strips to Cass's turn to evil, we also link it to other things such as the Titans, Hal Jordan, Nightwing's current emoness and other things.

Here's one involving a current problem with Titans East;

These were followed by similar (If better drawn) strips here;

And this one-shot by another person;

And finally, 'The adventures of Cass and Booster', which admittedly focusses more on Booster's recent mistreatment, but Cass plays straight man to him. (I'll link you to the thread it was in, and you'll see the picture of it and the following links to it)

I figured some might be interested in this, or at least get a laugh out of some of them.

Hehe, I love the one with Didio in it. The Verses one is also funny, and true.

Aeon September 16th, 2006 12:35 PM

Hmm... BatGirl. Booster Gold. Both are BGs. Coincidence?

I like the drunk Robin mixin' up his Cassies.

Because I'm assuming that's what was happening in that two-page story.
Cassandra!Batgirl with a villain's moustache and top hat was hilarious, and slightly adorable.

And finally somebody makes a joke about how LoA Cassandra was beaten by Robin. By all rights, he shouldn't have been able to even touch her.

Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Heh, I never even considered that actually, but that's a good point. I had the impression from it that since it seemed semi-obvious from the Robin storyline that Cass wanted more than a partnership, but the mistaking Cassie's makes a hell of a lot more sense.

You noticed what she did with the bottle, right?

I wonder what Rose thinks of Timmy and his Cassies. In the next Marvel/DC x-over, is he gonna try to hook up with Stature?

Hawkeye even. Something tells me he'd go for her. ;)

Aeon September 16th, 2006 10:10 PM

But Kate's name isn't Cassie ;)

Impulse September 17th, 2006 05:26 AM

Man, those are great! :D

Joshua Pantalleresco September 17th, 2006 07:46 AM

Good stuff.

Drink September 17th, 2006 05:44 PM

Thanks all.

Here's another Casstoon, which revolved around Deathstroke and how he sounds.

Heh - more good stuff. :D Is there a site with all of these 'Casstoons' on?

Not a specific website per se, but we have them on two forums.

Here's the DC boards site that we have them. As said, there's literally hundreds of them;

These are freakin' fantastic! A heck of a lot more creative and fun than the flame wars and fighting that normally result from popular characters going evil. Anything that adds more fuel to the fire and a chance to have this nonsensical plot reversed is okay by me.

The one with Vic Sage is my favorite so far. "Up next: Why aglets are sinister." :D
