Hawkgirl's Day Off

Things are slow going here today, as we are still in the middle of the deep freeze from the snowstorm yesterday.  Everything is slush and ice now, which is a lot worse, frankly.  But them's the breaks.

I always liked the way Shayera was drawn in the DCAU style, including her earrings despite not being married.  This image nicely demonstrates the problems a Hawk faces when not on patrol.

The idea of Hawkgirl wearing a big backpack to hide her wing harness makes a lot of sense -- a lot more sense than the quickly abandoned shrinking uniforms and wings from the Silver Age, that's for sure.  Also, the big backpack reminds me of how Angel had to hide his wings as an X-Terminator in the early days of X-Factor.
