A few years ago, Cliff Chiang did designs for a Gatchaman-style (better known in the West as the 1970s cartoon Battle of the Planets) take on DC's finest heroes that had us longing for a classic anime take on the Justice League. But artist Jordan Gibson has added to those hopes with a whole series of Gatchaman-inspired Batgirl art that we adore.
