Congratulations to one of my favorite artists, current Batgirl fill-in artist and former Iron Man artist, Alitha Martinez! She’s been hired by Archie Comics on their new digital superhero initiative, The New Crusaders!  She takes over with issue 3, released in 4 parts throughout the month of July, and will continue for the foreseeable future.
I’d been meaning to check out this series since I enjoyed DC’s attempt to reboot the Archie “Red Circle” characters a few years ago (especially The Web written by D.E.B.s. writer/director Angela Robinson).

Have I mentioned how happy I am Alitha Martinez is on Batgirl yet?  Still a fill-in artist, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a promotion soon.

Batgirl 7
I had never seen Alitha Martinez’s art before, but I liked her section of the issue. According to DC’s website, we’ll be seeing more of her. She’s listed as drawing part of issue 8 and all of issue 10.

She did a really lovely job…her upcoming pages are even better. I really hope she gets a great ongoing books soon.

That is fantastic news!  I’d talked to Carol Burrell (Martinez’s editor at Graphic Universe) at SPX and she said that Martinez was contemplating leaving comics, and that made me a sad panda, since I loved her Iron Man “Mask in the Iron Man" work as well as her "My Boyfriend Bites" work.  The fact that she’s getting repeat jobs from DC Comics can only encourage her to stay!  Apart from the fact that she’s a great artist, there’s also a real dearth of POC working at the Big Two these days, and Martinez is certainly one that deserves a higher profile (just look at that Babs, people!).
