Had a chance to finally read and catch up with Cameron Stewart & Brendan Fletchre’s new Batgirl title for DC Comics. Besides the fact that Stewart & Babs Tarr’s art is a joy to look at, it’s a great title that harkens back to any number of great comics that do what they do best: show what it means to be a young person of exceptional and at times, ostracizing and frustrating circumstances. If you haven’t checked it out yet, then you should take a second and give it a chance. Get Volume 1 here.
I mean, I know everyone wants me to do more DC comic songs. So here you go.

Another post-apocalyptic song by Leslie Fish, sung by Mark Heiman. This is one of my favorite Fish songs, but I’ve never actually heard it sung by her.
I got left alone in a recording studio last week, so I thought I’d do a recording of the Doctor Who song thebastardofgloucester and scribefindegil wrote, to the tune of Leslie Fish’s “Roman Centurion’s Song.” Because it’s great and I want people to hear it.

Lyrics available here
No One Does It Better (than the Birds of Prey)
good evening all you gentlemen
mobsters, creeps, and crooks
men in tights come after you
and still you’re off the hook
for those who scare and terrorize
it’s the dawn of a brand new day;
you scum can simply call us
the one and only birds of prey
I heard this at Minicon last weekend and will forever regret I didn’t take a video of the performance, but this will give you an idea.
“Vodka In The Jar,” a Russian version of the Irish standard, written by Lojo Russo and performed by Lojo Russo and Adam Stemple
