Cassandra Cain is about to make her live action debut in Birds of Prey next week, but she’s also going to be getting her own Graphic Novel around the same time. In Shadow of the Batgirl, the teen targeted book will take the mute assassin on a journey of self-discovery and a happenstance interaction with Barbara Gordon. The story is written by Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex) and artwork from Nicole Goux (Jem and the Holograms). Make sure to pick up a copy HERE.
Cassandra Cain, teenage assassin, isn’t exactly Batgirl material…not yet, at least. But with Batgirl missing from Gotham City, can Cassandra defy her destiny and take on a heroic mantle of her very own? She’ll have to go through an identity crisis of epic proportions to find out. After a soul-shattering moment that sends Cass reeling, she’ll attempt to answer this question the only way she knows how: learning everything she possibly can about her favorite hero-Batgirl. But Batgirl hasn’t been seen in Gotham for years, and when Cass’s father threatens the world she has grown to love, she’ll have to step out of the shadows and overcome her greatest obstacle-that voice inside her head telling her she can never be a hero. Sarah Kuhn, author of Heroine Complex and I Love You So Mochi, takes on one of her favorite heroes for a new audience of readers. Featuring the edgy art style of Nicole Goux, Shadow of the Batgirl tells the harrowing story of a girl who overcomes the odds to find her unique identity.
