My choice for best blog post title about Stephanie Brown's return...

It has to be this one by J. Caleb Mozzocco.  That he illustrated it with some sweet Dean Trippe artwork only adds to its appeal.  Mozzocco makes some solid points about Stephanie's potential costume, too.  All the costumes, really.  I also wish DC had gone to Darwyn Cooke to re-design everyone-- except Katana; that one is a visual home run-- and I also think Mozzocco's right on with the idea to have Trippe handle the costumes for the younger heroes.  In fact, it would be pretty cool if they at least used some variation on Trippe's Spoiler design for New 52 Steph.  The skirt isn't a necessity, although the black breaks up the purple monochromatic monotony.  Maybe they would do something else.  Or just keep the skirt.

What do you think the chances of that are?  Yeah, that's what I thought.  High collar, pouches, lots of grooves and lines and general awkwardness await, I'm afraid.  On the other hand, even if the costume looks as lousy as most of the others, it's still Stephanie Brown wearing it, which is a damn sight better than no Steph and no costume at all.
