An absolutely beautiful Cass Cain painting!

This capeless (YES!) version of Cassandra Cain leaping joyously off a building comes courtesy of Samantha Dodge and her Doodleblog.  According to Ms. Dodge's autobiographical info, she's a second year animation student at SCAD.  Appropriately, the first thing that came to mind when I saw her rendition of Cass was all those pre-production paintings I've seen by Mary Blair when she was at Disney.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict great things from this Samantha Dodge in the future and also give her extra points for ditching the cape.  "A cape is useless," I'd always say.

A nice chat with Scott Peterson...

Wow!   It's been a long time since I posted anything here, hasn't it?  There's just not a lot of positive Cass stuff (other than fan creations and artwork here and there) to talk about.  But now there's this short and sweet interview with Cass co-creator Scott Peterson conducted and posted by Max Eber.  Peterson and artist Annie Wu also created the future Batgirl for Batman Beyond, and she was yet another well-received character.

Well, you've probably already read this but I'd feel like a jerk if I didn't post something pleasant here once in a while.
