Having seen the preview pages at NYCC, and now this, I am even more excited. This art feels like it’s too good to just be in a monthly comic, like it should be a special event. The dialogue and pacing in the preview hooked me, so it should be a pretty kickin’ total package. Greg Rucka seemed really, really excited about it.
I love the look. It’s definitly going to give Batwoman some cred putting her in a noir, detective series. I am very excited for the build up to the character. This is how it should have been when she debuted 3 years ago. I hope this is worth the wait
I think it’s funny that in an age where the medium is creator-driven rather than character-driven that so many people are dismissing this book because it’s about a character they seemingly have no interest in. What, did you people actually care about Starman before James Robinson or the Rogues before Geoff Johns?
Beautiful stuff, but this is a nonsense character. There are enough
assorted sidekicks and derivatives in Batman’s immediate orbit already. If you’ve already got a Batgirl, a Batwoman is pretty much redundant. Not to mention that she hasn’t even been handled with anything resembling common sense: I haven’t missed a single issue of Batman or Detective in over 20 years, and yet I know nothing about her. How does it make sense to have another Bat-character running around for three years and yet she makes zero appearances, nor is her existence even acknowledged, in the core books?
well, if the furore over batwoman being a lesbian hadn’t totally overtaken the character i guess we would’ve seen more of her. but credit to DC for pulling back on that hype and instead waiting until we have a good writer and an _amazing_ (imho) artist to tell stories about her.
Hopefully her sexuality will be a relevant but not overpowering point when she takes over in Detective.
And am I the only one that wants to see JH Williams draw the Question’s smoke vs the Shade’s shadows???
