The second half of the issue is devoted to the possibility of Kate Kane and Reneé Montoya renewing their relationship. This involves six pages reminding the reader that Kate and Reneé are lesbians, in case the preceding 17 issues failed to make it clear.
I hear there is a Batwoman TV series in the making. Yay. I hope it’s better than the comic book series, but given the track record of the CW DC shows, I’m not holding my breath. I think we can expect to see lots of carefully choreographed fight scenes in dimly lit warehouses, and plenty of social justice preaching in between.
But one thing I do appreciate about Batwoman is that she is not a super-cop like Batman. She’s a soldier, and thinks and acts like one. It perhaps gives her an edge Batman lacks. That may make her flawed as a character, but I don’t mind that. Some of my best friends are flawed.
