Batwoman :: The Book

We have been waiting a long time for this series to hit the stands, and we all know the wait will be worth it.  Batwoman is written by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, and this is what they had to say about the book:  "Many layers to the story will unfold as the series progresses, and we’ll be going for a genre bending approach to things. We’re starting things off very much in a gothic horror type of story, and this will dovetail into more of a classic spy espionage plot with a touch Tarantino like structure, that in turn dovetails into a fantasy epic."

"The interesting thing about this genre bending plot movement is that these stories will be interconnected by an overall arcing plot. And while doing so, some of our main goals are dealing with the fallout between Kate Kane and her father Colonel Jacob Kane over the lies about her twin sister’s death from when they were children. This is stemming from events in the BATWOMAN: ELEGY book."

"We are also going to be creating a rogues gallery for Batwoman. Right now she really only has Alice and the Religion Of Crime. While those elements are great, we feel that Batwoman’s longevity as a strong character will be greatly enhanced by building her a mythos of villains that she can call her own, and we’ve got some very mean gruesome ones on the way."

"We also explore the possibilities in Kate’s personal life and how they relate to her being Batwoman. We’re going to explore Batwoman’s relationship with Flamebird (Bette Kane, Kate’s cousin) in some very interesting ways. And while all of this is going on, a very powerful governmental agency is going to be breathing down her neck. As the series rolls out you can expect horror, action, intrigue, fantasy, heroism, and a whole lot of villainy."
