“Or, sometimes you like something because you really have no choice in the matter - you feel your soul is richer, or more colourful, or more resonant because of that thing. I want to be true to that voice.”
— Artist Joe Sorren in HiFructose #13

Gustav Klimt, The Golden Knight (detail of Beethoven Frieze), 1902
In 1902, Klimt painted the Beethoven Frieze for the 14th Vienna Secessionist exhibition, which was intended to be a celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven the composer and featured a monumental polychrome sculpture by Max Klinger. Meant for the exhibition only, the frieze was painted directly on the walls with light materials. After the exhibition the painting was preserved, although it did not go on display again until 1986. The Beethoven Frieze is now on permanent display in the Vienna Secession hall (Austria), Secession Building.
Prepare yourselves appropriately, because this is happening.

I’m really enjoying this costume AND/OR comic AND/OR creative team!
I haven’t been interested in a DC superhero book since Morrison was on Batman, but man alive I am all about this Batgirl creative team. This looks SPECTACULAR.
