Cassandra Cain by Ross Campbell

A couple weeks ago, Girls Gone Geek was running a hashtag on twitter called #DreamComics asking people to pitch their character and creative team that would make up their dream comics at DC and Marvel.

Here is an archive of all the cover homages featured in the streak so far!
