Costume Changes Through the Years

Newsarama used to be a site that offered informative and insightful, well, news about the comics publishing world.  About a year ago, the content shifted to a seemingly endless unveiling of recycled Top 10 lists that are as subjective as they are asinine.

Great, worse, worst, better.
Other than Vaneta Rogers, the only contributor to the site I follow is a gentleman named Alan Kistler, whose regular column "Agent of S.T.Y.L.E." chronicles the visual history of superheroes and how their costumes change over time.  In March of last year, Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. examined the "Hyper-Sonic Fashion" of Black Canary.

Cover art by Brian Bolland--channeling Howard Chaykin, I think.
Unfortunately, some of the image links have broken down in the nineteen months since the article was originally published, but you can still get a sense of Dinah's costume continuity.
