I know I’m not the only female comics fan who savors those words. Yes, that’s right, ladies and gentlemen, Kate Spencer is back and better than ever. Manhunter is coming back as a co-feature in the new Streets of Gotham book, and it will be written once again by our beloved Marc Andreyko, with art by Buffy Season 8‘s Georges Jeanty.
If you DON’T remember Manhunter, well, what’s wrong with you? No, seriously. In a superhero world filled with scantily clad and rather dull heroines, Kate Spencer is one of the most real–imperfect, human, tough, smart, and yes, still sexy, if more covered up–female characters in comics. She’s a lawyer, a single mother, and a superheroine by night.
This new series also features a regular ongoing co-feature starring Manhunter written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Georges Jeanty (Buffy Season 8)! Kate Spencer lost a friend during the chaos of BATTLE FOR THE COWL, and now she wants payback. As usual, she’ll use any means necessary to get it!
I’m not usually a fan of superheroes, but I am excited for the return of Manhunter. It’s an exciting team, a great book, and a great move on the part of DC to bring back beloved books that weren’t quite paying for themselves on the back end of other books. Among other double features will be the Question on the back end of Detective Comics, which will feature yet another heroine worth keeping an eye on.
Featuring the debut of a new co-feature starring The Question written by Rucka! Odds against you? Alone and nowhere to turn? Willing to fight, but you don’t know how? When you’re searching everywhere for an answer, sometimes all you need to do is ask the right Question. Renee Montoya again dons the faceless mask to help those in need, all the while searching for her own answers in this new adventure with art by Cully Hamner (BLUE BEETLE).
I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking about indulging in superheroes in a big way for the first time in my life. Manhunter, Batwoman, Question, and oh yeah–Gotham City Sirens? Looks like a great season for superheroines.
