I have to admit I'm not usually big on redesigns that look too much like just normal street clothes, but this take on Batgirl (or it could very well be Batwoman) has a definite appeal to it. Look at that leather jacket/mask combo, it has " I'm going to kick you ass!" written all over it. Kudos to Pia Guerra for putting so much personality into this pin-up.
Pia Guerra ( Home Page | Twitter | Photobucket ) is name that most people associate with one series: Y - The Last Man. She had actually been working on various underground and indie comics, before beginning to work in the critically acclaimed Vertigo maxi series alongside with Brian K. Vaughnan. Guerra illustrated most of the sixty issues that the series lasted, and while it didn't make her a household name (like say, Jim Lee), it sure catapulted her popularity making her an "overnight" sensation.
Since then, she has not done a whole lot of comic work, save for shortly contributing to a Doctor Who series for IDW. Whatever work she does end up doing in the future, she has demonstrated that she is a talent and a force to be reckoned with. Hit the jump to see more of her artwork.
