I doubt it has any significance, but there was a pattern in the layout splits:

More pattern than story, in fact.

You can sum up the story for most single issue comics in a sentence. The sentence for this comic just happens to be "Batman investigates Batwoman".

And the reason I don't read many superhero comics like this is because it's the same damn sentences over and over again. :lol:

The only novel thing here was the pattern of dual artists.

That would be lame, I'm not doing this to insult any poster, I just refuse to read Batwoman, it's not spiteful, just a personal preference.

I for one am very happy with the decision. Please let us know which ones you would "refuse" to read for personal reasons every week... please? :D

Batwoman returns with #0 of a new on-going series. And about damn time too. Greg Rucka and J. H. Williams III last year presented us to Elegy, one of DC's most finest comics to come out in a long time focusing on the story of Kathy Kane, the new socialite in Gotham with an Bat-alter-ego. Upon initial release of this character, the comic geekworld greeted the character with scorn and controversy, mostly due to her sexuality seemingly playing a big part of her characterization. Feelings didn't finally settle until readers read the Elegy arc in Detective and saw that she's mroe than just a lesbian but a solid character with a great foundation and backstory, along with a supporting cast, villains, motivations, etc. DC surely had a winner on their hands.

With this new series, Williams III returns as writer and artist with the help of W. Haden Blackman (co-writer) and Amy Reeder Hadley (co-artist). For new readers, this #0 serves as a jump on point and a recap issue told through the eyes of Batman. We get a sense of the character of Kathy Kane, her abilities and motivations, her cast, etc. For fans already, all this isn't new but its a welcome back embrace and a return to form. The story seems like it's heading us back to the strong elements of the character with the beautifully crafted artwork by William III. And those lay-outs--OH THOSE LAYOUTS!!! The colors by Dave Stewart works perfectly and leads readers to anticipate this wonderful creative team in telling us more about Kathy Kane.

Bring it on, Batwoman team. Bring it.

personal preference, but when I state my personal preference not to read Hellboy out of order, I am being an ass. Maybe Punchy should look in a mirror

I hate to skip out on BlueStreak's first week, but my budget for comic books is stretched as it is this week. There's no way I'm going to able to add anything else to the mix.

I still don't understand why Punchy has such a hate against the character, but I don't want to cause a pointless thread of arguments. I do recall thinking the reason was weird and idiotic, but whatever.

the ny post said it was about a "lipstick buxom lesbian", therefore that is the way DC marketed it.
