Birds of Prey cover, with Batgirl!
This cover was a fun one to draw, as it was a homage, or rip-off of a 60's DC cover! The editor, Mike Carlin, loved it, but then, editorial above him made him black out the Batgirl figure, for some reason that seemed important at that time. I know this is a business, and they need to sell comics, but moves like this are just pointless, and arbitrary. Plus they ruined a good cover.
