Bad News!

Today is a sad day.  DC has announced that Batwoman will be ending with issue number 40 and Annual number 2 in March/April. I cannot say this is much of a shock, because ever since J.H. Williams III left the title, the character and the book have been receiving less and less attention. Let's hope this is just the end of a volume or a phase, and that Kate, Bette, and the rest of the cast come back soon after.  Sad day, nonetheless.

More Darwyn Cooke

So maybe Batwoman did not get a variant cover in this month's Darwyn Cook themed series, but that doesn't mean that Kane Kane has never been illustrated by this great artist. Here is an awesome Batwoman sketch by Mr. Cooke himself:

Each is in landscape format -horizontal- and has a mix of old and new, classic and contemporary looks for your favorite super heroes! Here is the Batgirl of Burnside:
