    I really like Blanco's stark contrasts and black lines - I think this should be excellent, similar to Trevor McCarthy's run with Williams and Blackman for art.

    Especially since it sounds like Kate and Simon are going to be tripping balls the entire arc.

    Picked up the first issue of Rebirth Batwoman from the bin while at my LCS.

    Honestly, second verse, same as the first. It's well written and drawn, though not as well drawn as her early Nu52 stuff, but like her Nu52 book, it just isn't for me. Honestly, I think Kate just works better for me as a supporting character, or at least as part of an ensemble. I really enjoy her over in 'Tec, but there really isn't anything about her on her own that I can personally to latch onto.

    Glad a lot of you can still get something out of it though.

    in honor of Batwoman Day, I made some Spotify playlists.

    First, there's the Batwoman Rebirth Playlist, which uses the songs that the issues in this first arc were titled after:

    https://open.spotify.com/user/talkin...9pnLuOn1zLCW3P

    And Kate's Playlist, which is made up of songs I think Kate would listen to on patrol, while working out, etc. I extrapolated from her canonical musical tastes.

    I'm pretty bummed to hear this, especially today of all days. But at least you tried it.

    Do you know what specifically you don't like?

    Blackman is a writer not an artist. He and Williams were co-authors and Williams, McCarthy and Amy Reeder were the rotating artists.

    Yeah, I figured today of all times would be a good time to try it out. Oh well.

    It's not that I really disliked anything, so much as what I failed to like. A plot like this, just based in the first issue, which is servicable but nothing special, is fine of the characters shine. As I said though, Kate fails for me as a solo hero. My favorite heroes are all ones I can relate to, and aside from having a dad whose not who she thought they were, I don't have anything at all in common with Kate. That doesn't mean I don't think Kate is a great character though. Any time she's talking with the 'Tec team or Renee, its great stuff because of how well she bounces off them. Amazing character, like her more than a lot of the Batfamily...Her story just isn't for me.

    Well, fair enough.

    Edit: On a more upbeat note, the thread has passed 1,000 responses!

    I know. But I was talking about the times when McCarthy was the artist, when Williams and Blackman were the writers.

    This is old news but hasn't been mentioned here, I don't think.

    Anyway, Batwoman will finally be getting a big-budget live action appearance!

    ...in a porn parody of Justice League. Yeah, I know. It's a little odd.

    Anyway, the costume was revealed today, worn by Charlotte Stokely, who will be playing Kate:

    BW.jpg

    The film is being made by a company that apparently has a track record of high-quality films (relatively speaking), and other superhero parodies from them have apparently been pretty faithful to the source material. That seems to be true here; it's been confirmed that Batwoman will only have lesbian scenes in this, and just look at that costume.

    I have mixed feeling on this, but all in all, if they're going to do this I appreciate that they're putting a lot of effort into it and being true to the character by the sound of things. There will also apparently be a solo Batwoman film in 2018 from this same company.

    Right? When I first heard, I could basically only go "Well... huh. Okay."
