Cameron Stewart, Babs Tarr, and Brenden Fletcher were fundamental to the meteoric rise of Batgirlā€™s popularity at DC comics with the ā€œBatgirl of Burnsideā€ shakeup a few years ago. They might have moved on from Barbara Gordon, but their first creator-owned comic together sounds just as fun.

Announced this morning by Image Comics, Motor Crush, launching later this year, is a bit far removed from the superheroic world Barbara hung out inā€”but no less weird and wonderful.

Motor Crush follows the excellently-named Domino Swift, a motorcycle racer by day and bike warrior by night, as she battles for a strange resource: Crush, described as a ā€œnarcotic for machines.ā€ If that doesnā€™t sound interesting enough, Crush apparently has far more sinister origins than anyone realizes, putting Domino in great danger.

Bike wars? Machine narcotics? Names like Domino Swift? Even if this wasnā€™t from one of our favorite comics creative teams, sign us all the way up. Motor Crush #1 hit shelves on December 7.
