2010 was a big year for Batwoman, with the publication of the beautiful hardcover of BATWOMAN: ELEGY and issue #0 of generating flat out rave reviews in the press. 2011 promises even bigger and better things with the launch of the eagerly anticipated BATWOMAN ongoing series. For insight into what’s in store for Kate Kane, we reached out to J.H. Williams:
Today, BATWOMAN #0 hits, featuring an all star creative roster that includes writer/artist J.H. Williams III, co-writer W. Haden Blackman and artist Amy Reeder. Springing out of a best-selling, Eisner and GLAAD Award-winning arc in DETECTIVE COMICS, BATWOMAN #0 sets the stage for the ongoing BATWOMAN series slated to launch in February – and it’s a perfect primer. The issue follows the Dark Knight as he ponders the very question we kick this post off with. Can Batman put the clues together and confirm Batwoman’s identity? My money’s on yes, but the fun’s in how the story unfolds.
You should be after you look over these promo images. And with NYCC in full swing, expect lots of BATMAN-centric chatter over the weekend. See you at the booth! [gallery link="file"]
