Batwoman is Getting an Ongoing Series Again!
I’m a big Batwoman fan, and I’m excited to hear she’s going to get a new ongoing series again! It’s due to be announced today at New York Comic-Con! My friend and co-creator Kristi is a huge Batwoman fan, and I hope she hears the news while she’s at NYCC (I’ll be there tomorrow!)
The new series will be written by Marguerite Bennett, who is doing great work on DC Bombshells, with art by Steve Epting. It’s going to spin out of Batwoman’s role in Detective Comics.
So yeah, this is pretty awesome news. I’d love a new, well-written Batwoman comic.
“There has never been a heroine I have loved more than Batwoman,” said Bennett in a statement. “Her flaws, her ferocity, her struggle to rise above her own history and find a way to serve the greater good and those she loves—she’s always cut me straight to the bone. To be a queer woman and to see a queer woman as not just a part but a pillar of the Bat-family was life changing, inspiring and gave me the courage to pursue this career in comics. The opportunity to add to Kate Kane’s story and legacy is both an honor and a sincere dream come true.”
But we have to wait until February! Oh well.
