That's my reaction as well.

To be honest, all of the non-Rucka Batwoman stuff has been pretty ho-hum. Pissing that dude off was probably the worst mistake DC made with the character.

Putting Andreyko on the book may be a good move. But booting the creative team 2 months early after they expressed the desire to finish their story arc before leaving, is utterly class-less on the part of DC. The classy way to handle this would be to wait a little while, and then announce Andreyko will be starting on issue 27.

I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop and for Williams to get fired off of Sandman. You know DC can't be pleased with all the negative attention this has wrought.

I'd like to see how Gaiman would react to that. I'm assuming not too well.

Which is why I'm not expecting to see it happen. Gaiman is a name that the powers that be at DC want to keep happy. I don't see then doing anything to endanger their relationship with him

They just want to WIR ( http://lby3.com/wir/ ) Maggie so they don't have to deal with lesbians being a real thing and all. Maybe they'll make her MAGICALLY STRAIGHT and GIVE HER A PENIS, to fit marvel idea of a good comic book.

"Magically straight?"
"Marvel"?

That's a rational, intelligent idea.

I don't think that Dan Didio and Bob Harras are rational, intelligent men. They're driven by ego and a desire for control. If they have the scripts, they can always get someone else to draw them. If they don't, they can always cancel the project entirely. When it comes time to show the bosses that they're profitable, money that they don't make because of a project that they don't publish won't factor into the books.

I used an imaginary crystal ball to ask Didio about this, and he fictitiously replied:

"Wait a minute. That's what you're getting. Kathy "Kate" Spencer Kane is Batwoman. You know. The lady who used to be Oracle, who was shot by the Joker in that Grant Morrison trade in the 1980s, 'War Games' or something."
