The first issue of the Greg Rucka, JH Williams III Detective Comics series took off like a bang, with fans falling all over themselves trying to heap a big amount of praise on the work.  Detective Comics #855 arrives on store shelves on July 29, 2009, and DC Comics has released a sneak preview for you to check out.

Detective Comics #855
Written by Greg Rucka; Art by JH Williams III; co-feature Art by Cully Hamner; Cover by JH Williams III

“Elegy” part 2 of 4 by Greg Rucka and JH Williams III! Batwoman captures her enemy, a madwoman known only as Alice who sees her life as a fairy tale and everyone around her as expendable extras – including Kate! But when the tables are turned, Batwoman finds herself in a hallucination slamming the present into a collision with the past, and the hints of a threat that will claim the lives of every man, woman and child in Gotham City.

And in the all-new co-feature starring the Question, Montoya’s quest to find a missing young girl turns deadly.
