I'm a big fan of the current Batgirl
comic book series (Seriously, it's excellent. Everybody go read it right now!), but the series is being cancelled in two months (NOOOOOOOOOO!
). It's being replaced by an identically-named series that features different production staff, characters, and potentially not even the same history of a shared universe. As such, it quite clearly counts as a different series, despite being in the same medium and having the same title.
What I'm wondering is what does this mean for the Batgirl
page. How should this be formatted to cover two identically-named but independent series? Should there be two pages made (Titled "Batgirl 2009" and "Batgirl 2011" to distinguish them), or should the currently-existing page be divided into sections (Battlestar Galactica
, for example, is one page with a section each for original and new series), or should it be one single blob of Batgirl-ness? Also, there was a previously existing Batgirl series from a few years ago, should that be included as well (Well, obviously it should
be included, it's its own work, but again I'm asking how
Complicating the matter further is that the Batgirl page used to be a character
page (You know, one of those pages that just talked about one specific character and the tropes relating to them, not an entire work) that covered six different characters (They had all been called "Batgirl" at one point or another) in several dozen different comic series, TV shows, movies and different continuities. A few months ago I split that information off onto the Batgirl
page (It has a Characters/ header) and turned the Batgirl
page itself into its current incarnation as a work-page. Whatever we decide to do for the main Batgirl page, this character page will need to be incorporated somehow, since it can't just be cut off.
How should we proceed?
