This was such a fantastic issue! I'm really psyched to see the rest of it play out. I also love that it played directly into Nightwing and figured into the ending of Red Hood. I think DC's finally done a crossover right for a change!

I am amazed you skipped all the basassness. These are the tamest 3 pages. It was that awesome.

I wish I had a working scanner.

I liked that last page thought it was pretty (with exception of Red Hood's mask)... and badass.

The way that Albuquerque drew Red Hood's mask with the lips is kinda freaking me out.

Outside of that, fantastic issue. :D

I actually like it more that way. Reminds me of Thane.

I loved this issue. And all the blues and teal for the coloring.

I really loved this. I really felt a sense of "shit's about to get real" by the end (not that it wasn't already).

I was about to say, didn't she turn Batman down in favor of the Government... why still beyond me.

why still beyond me

government basically said they would ruin her family, Bette, and her dad, and if there is anything Kate honors more than honor itself it's her family. While working with them, they make sure Bette Lives and her father stays out of trouble for helping a vigilante...

The writers turned down the tie in, so I don't think it's on purpose by Snyder.

Actually, I assumed it meant good things for her book, in that it didn't need the sales boost of the tie-in. Plus, Batwoman was announced prior to the reboot, and probably had a set storyline, which of course would be interrupted if lagging sales required such.

DC gave the all the Batman writers the option of whether to participate in the event or not to. Because Batwoman was in the middle of a story arc the writers decided against a crossover. She was not openly ignored, her writers were given the option.

Which I think is fantastic. This really is a crossover done right. You've got one writer writing a big story, and setting up possibilities for others to participate, but not necessarily for the big picture, so the other writers are given their own choice whether or not they want to join in. If they have their own thing building, they're not obligated to. Honestly, that's the best way to handle these things.

Aha, they specifically mentioned only the allies in Gotham, that could answer any queries as to where certain people are instory. For example, Batwoman could be in a different part of the country as part of her government job, Helena was in Italy, Cass in Hong Kong... and Steph in Hong Kong too, I guess. Or she's still in the UK hanging out with Beryll or something.

Does visiting-Earth-1-Helena have any association with the Bat Family in the new U? I'd assumed not as of yet.

[personal profile] espanolbot 2012-04-19 06:48 am (UTC)(link)
From what I've gathered, the Helena Bertinelli identity was just one of her aliases, post-reboot, so the Huntress from BoP etc. kind of doesn't exist anymore.

[personal profile] kenn_el 2012-04-19 06:51 am (UTC)(link)
That's what I thought. This way whoever's writing WF gets to do the big meet where Helena angsts over whether to tell Bruce that he reminds her of her father.

[personal profile] kenn_el 2012-04-19 03:37 pm (UTC)(link)
She's from an Earth 2 Gotham, though, and is Batman's daughter/partner (apparently), so we can't assume she meant Earth 1.
kenn_el: Northstar_Hmm (Default)

[personal profile] kenn_el 2012-04-19 04:14 pm (UTC)(link)
You're probably totally correct! I was still wary of anything in the mini back when Levitz was being cute about the whole Earth 1/Earth 2 question, though, and the contents of the crates could have been going to Metropolis, and it wouldn't have meant that Helena operated in Metropolis. The 'Batman' comment just makes no sense coming from Batman's daughter, and seemed to indicate at the time that the character was pre-Flashpoint Helena. If anyone knows how Batman does it, it's his daughter/partner, and I can't imagine that the Earth 1 Bats is THAT much more impressive than his Earth 2 counterpart.

[personal profile] kenn_el 2012-04-19 04:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Just considering the fact that Earth 2 Bruce is both Helena's father AND Batman to her Robin, it's highly unlikely that she'd be that impressed with Earth 1 Bruce, as she seems to be in the example you cited. That's more the pre-Flashpoint Helena's style.

I wish you posted the page where he said "Get the hell out of my house!!" Seriously, that was awesome. If Batman says get the hell out of his house, you get the fuck out.

Now all we need is for someone to get Christian Bale to yell/gargle that quote and we have a hammy cry almost as good as Harrison Ford's "GET OFF MY PLANE" though not quite as good as Shatner saying, well you know...

So just curious, did anyone else squee when Bruce said "Call the family!"

I just love little touches like that.

The backup got me so pumped I'm actually considering buying all the tie-in books. I usually refuse to do that.

Don't worry, Alfred is fine for now. He's in a panic room/armory and the banging is the Talons trying to get in past Bruce.

Sooooooo in the New 52 Batman (the most prepared guy ever) has no perimeter alarms or defenses and the Court of Owls can just break into both the Mansion *and* the Batcave???

I know I am in the minority here but to me the Court of Owls are the Mary Sue of Villains. They're everywhere! They know everything! They (almost) broke Batman! They were responsible for the death of the Flying Graysons!

They want to introduce new villains? Fine, I can only read so many Two face stories. They want to make them formidable? Great, but does everyone have to be the ultimate threat EVER and/or retconned into being part of a heroes origin?
