Some virtuoso storytelling by JH Williams III, from Detective Comics 858.
In September, the Batwoman team of J.H. Williams III and Haden Blackman announced they were leaving the book with issue 26. The firestorm around the reasons they were leaving led DC to move up their departure by two issues and hire a new writer.

Andreyko’s run starts this week with issue #25 (preview here, new replacement cover below ) which is now part of DC Comic’s mini-event centered around Batman Zero. He’ll be joined next month by his Manhunter collaborator Jeremy Haun, who I spoke to last month.

So, one more time!
In this corner, a woman never stops…
Yesterday’s contest was on by Cass Cain who smothered her mother in battle. Sorry Shiva!
One wears the Bat, the other wears the fishnets. It’s a SCREAM of a battle.
In one corner, one of the top martial artists and a someone you don’t want raising her voice…
Dinah Laurel Lance, Black Canary!
And in the other corner, she lives to serve … and kick your ass…
