Walaka challenged me to find an alternate image for the Batgirl Showcase cover and after scanning through the book this was the only candidate I could find. It's taken from the splash to Batman #214 and although I don't think it's any more appropriate than the one used, it has the benefit of depicting our heroine in a strong position. She might be doing something foolish and waering ridiculous shoes, but she's doing so in an empowered way.
Obviously this is a 5 minute Photoshop chop job, not a loving recreation of what might have been, but you get the idea.
Must resist urge to make joke about how that purse does not go with those boots...
Okay, I give.
Maybe DC editorial should have looked at building the story collection with an eye toward the cover image.
It seems that these are mighty slim pickins indeed.
I really would have preferred that cover. It's a bit cheezy, but the joke isn't on batgirl the same way.
