Killer Cover Alert: Batman Confidential #17

Why doesn't Kevin Maguire draw everything? Why isn't he a superstar of insane proportions? The man is talented to say the least.

The cover for Batman Confidential #17 knocks my socks off. When I went to check out DC solicitations for May, my eyes kept coming back to this. Between the slanted background and the expression on Batgirl's face, I was blown away. Maguire gives the readers an interesting cover without going "bad girl" on us. Nice.

What do you think?

A great cover and a great artist! Wish he did more work. I'm so far out of DC history right now I wasn't even aware that there was still a Batgirl out there. Or is that the new BatWoman?

David, you got me on that one!! LOL!

I miss my old feature. I really need to fire it up again!

John, I think it is the old school Barbara Gordon Batgirl. It is a fantastic cover to be sure! I just love the way Maguire works. He is unique everytime, and doesn't cheat on the details.

Kevin Maguire is magnificent. My idea of heaven would be for him to be drawing Justice League again.

OMFGWTFQQTBBQ it's not a sexualised cover of female comic character!!!!!!

*Squeals like a fangirl*

I love the cover, and the posing is excellent too.

Maguire's one of my favorites and this is one of his best covers. Nobody does faces like he does and I really like what he's done with the background.

I was so close to complete all Batman's comics collection, but my stupid older brother sold it to Order Viagra . You can not imagine how I hate him.
