Artist Cameron Stewart has been posting a few pages from BATMAN INCORPORATED: LEVIATHAN STRIKES!, the Grant Morrison-written one-shot wrapping up the long-delayed BATMAN INCORPORATED’s first season. Yesterday, he posted a page which features Stephanie Brown — yes, that Stephanie Brown. Leading to the predictable outpouring of attention.
Which led him to tweet:
Here’s something I have learned from Tumblr today – PEOPLE LOVE STEPHANIE BROWN
Informed by Rachel Edidin of the character’s long history — and the grassroots movement that developed to get her recognized as a proper Robin and not just a superheroine who was tortured to death with a drill — he tweeted:
Woah. I didn’t know any of that. Drawing her was really my first exposure to the character. Sheesh.
You’re in for it now, Cameron.
On another note, is Stephanie now a supporting character in MORNING GLORIES?
