‘Batwoman’ #0 Preview: Batman Asks ‘Who is Batwoman?’

On sale now is Batwoman #0, a special teaser issue in advance of the heroine’s long-awaited ongoing series that launches in February. Written by J.H Williams III and W. Haden Blackman with artwork by Williams as well as Amy Reeder & Richard Friend (from the astonishingly excellent and cruelly cancelled Madame Xanadu), the story continues the saga of Kate Kane that begin in earnest in Williams and Greg Rucka’s Batwoman: Elegy, winner of Eisner and GLAAD Awards for its superlative storytelling and bold depiction of DC Comics first major homosexual superhero.

Designed to be a primer for those still unfamiliar with the character, Batwoman #0 asks plainly, “Who is Batwoman?” The answer plays out in a story where the Batman himself observes Batwoman in action as he attempts to gauge her worthiness to operate in Gotham City and, more importantly, to deduce her secret identity.

Check out a five-page preview and two covers after the jump.

“I suspect that Batwoman is socialite Kate Kane. I intend to prove it beyond a shadow. I need to know if she can be trusted, what her motivations are. I’m going undercover.” – Batman: Mission Log Entry 2756

Featuring a unique story composition that combines the art of Eisner Award-winner J.H. Williams III (DETECTIVE COMICS, PROMETHEA) and Amy Reeder (MADAME XANADU), this special #0 issue acts as a new introduction into the life of Batwoman! Things pick up roughly where the BATWOMAN: ELEGY HC left off, and this issue acts as a primer for the upcoming new series featuring multiple award-winning creators!
