Oh boy, do I ever love these moments.
Kathy Kane being awesome. Select spread pages from the issue behind the cut.

I get GOOSEPIMPLES bad when someone does this very well in comics.
And this was done very well.

That is very badass. And I actually love the white facepaint part of Batwoman's costume. But I really hope that Kathy Kane figures out what Chase did to her partner and goes Kill Bill on that whole organization.

It's not facepaint.

Or at least, it hasn't been shown to be facepaint before, given Kate's as pale all over out of costume as she is in-costume.

It's not facepaint, she's just that pale.

Between her fashion choices - she's adopted a very gothic look in her civilian identity - and the fact that even aside from her Bat-activities, she's got a pretty much nocturnal life style, and thus gets little sun...

On one hand, that does look really cool. But...the armor seems too much for someone in the Bat-Family for me. They all should have some sort of armor, but they shouldn't look like fucking Superman in the process. I have a feeling that nano-tube armor is going to bite her in the ass.

she's DEA now.

First, she's part of the DEO--DEA is the real-life Drug Enforcement Administration.

Second, I don't think that's going to be for long either. To me, being part of the Bat-Family and part of such a shady government spy group are pretty much contradictory (it's part of why I HATE the fact that Oracle started out in the Suicide Squad and really soured me on that character in general).

My guess is that at some point Kate is burned by these guys, and that this armor will have something to do with it (probably controlling her actions), and Kate will find a way to get her father out of harms way and then completely destroy the organization from the inside out.

ugh, sorry, i was seriously trying to remember the correct letters. i knew it was the Department of Extranormal Affairs or something like that....

i don't know... The Manhunter series seemed to paint the DEO in a better light than most places. Kate (Spencer) isn't the type to enjoy working for others and they worked pretty well together... they gave her space, and helped her out when she needed it in return for helping them on some cases...

they were pretty underhanded here, and i agree i don't see this relationship working out... but i don't think its going to involve the suit taking over or somethinglike that... ithink its going tobe more them asking her to make a choice she does not want to make.

i will say this, Chase as depicted here is REALLY different from how she is portrayed in manhunter....

i never had a problem with Oracle starting in Suicide Squad, mainly because that Squad was not what it became later on in the DCU.

I really love that second double spread.

Though to be honest, I was kinda disappointed by the rest of the issue. =/

Oh, the art. Sigh. It's, like, almost right, but not - which can be more jarring than just having a complete change of style.

I dunno. What do the rest of you think?

The art's not up to Reeder's top quality but it's still top-notch, the best art currently on any of the Bat books (on equal footing with Williams' issues, and just ahead of Capullo on Batman).

It didn't look as good as the #0 issue did for me, so I was a little disappointed. Hopefully it'll get better?

I am very disappointed in the art on this issue, because, as I implied above, I feel Reeder is one of the best artists DC currently has on staff - it's still better than most, but it's way below Reeder's work on Madam Xanadu or the 0 issue - and think that mostly it's that she's trying to ape Williams a bit for the Batwoman scenes and that doesn't do her any favours - especially since the colourist apparently isn't in on the format the way the ones on the 0 issue and Williams' run were. When she's totally in her own style (the scenes with Kate and Maggie), it's fucking beautiful.

If they did it the same way Williams' run did - making only minor changes to her actual pencilling style and denoting the switches mostly with colouring changes, it would serve her much better.

That said, the bookend scenes (the worst looking scenes in the issue) look like neither Reeder's usual style, nor Reeder-channelling-Williams, so I don't know what the hell happened to her there.

That's still GORGEOUS art right there those three panels of the bullets dropping off. Batwoman is so badass. Ugh can they have Kate beat NuBabs's butt? I really really really want to see that.
