Judging A Book By It's Cover

We live in a world where we must be very careful of what we say and who we say it towards. We have to be ever careful of offending every single person who may read our work, see our images, or watch our films. We must be sensitive to everything and everyone. So I’m not surprised to hear that the cover of a comic book has struck a nerve with so many people. The upcoming variant cover to Batgirl issue forty-one shows an image many Batfans will recognize. It’s a callback to the extremely seminal and important book The Killing Joke. It’s in this book that The Joker shoots and paralyzes Barbara Gordon in front of her father, Commission James Gordon. For a very long time after this incident Barbara was confined to a wheelchair and operated as a hero under the name Oracle.
