DC Comics announced last month that Batwoman, the lesbian superhero that has featured in several DC titles, is coming back with her own monthly series. Batwoman #1 hits stores on September 14 and the series is the first from a mainstream comics publisher to star a LGBTQ character. The Advocate has an interview with artist and cowriter J.H. Williams on its website. Check it out. Here’s the plot for the first issue:
In “Hydrology,” part 1 of 5, Batwoman faces deadly new challenges in her war against Gotham City’s underworld – and new trials in her life as Kate Kane.
Who or what is stealing children from the barrio, and for what vile purpose? Will Kate train her cousin, Bette Kane (a.k.a. Flamebird), as her new sidekick? How will she handle unsettling revelations about her father, Colonel Jacob Kane? And why is a certain government agency suddenly taking an interest in her?
