I’m going to be honest: When J.H. Williams left Batwoman, I initially left with him. But lately, I’ve been wondering where Kate Kane is in the greater scheme of the New 52, and decided to check in on our mighty Batwoman to catch up, just in time for Zero Year… Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Authors J.H. Williams and W. Haden Blackman will leave the title after the upcoming 26th issue. This is another of those DC editing decisions that has been causing the creators to leave the company lately, but this one has more going on. Williams and Blackman stated via Willaims blog.
“In recent months, DC has asked us to alter or completely discard many long-standing storylines in ways that we feel compromise the character and the series. We were told to ditch plans for Killer Croc’s origins; forced to drastically alter the original ending of our current arc, which would have defined Batwoman’s heroic future in bold new ways; and, most crushingly, prohibited from ever showing Kate and Maggie actually getting married. All of these editorial decisions came at the last minute, and always after a year or more of planning and plotting on our end.”
Quite the number of changes that. And a rather controversial one to boot. I can understand why they chose to leave, heck I’m surprised they stuck with it as long as they did. What do you all have to say? You can also find the full post detailing the leave after the jump.

I am saddened to say that, of all the comics I’m behind reading, I’m probably furthest behind on Batwoman. The last thing I remember reading was issue #4, and then there’s a huge blur. I looked up from that comic in a brand-new year, and suddenly it’s nearly October. Will Batwoman still hold the same power after a prolonged absence? There’s only one way to find out, as your Major Spoilers review awaits!

So, yes. This book has been announced quite a few times, if memory serves, and I was starting to worry that we’d NEVER find out what happened to Batwoman after Bruce Wayne so rudely took back Detective Comics from her last year. But is the New-52-Batwoman the same character we’ve come to know since ’52?’

The Thanksgiving week is a really weird one. It makes for a short work week, which is nice, but the four day weekend, where we stuff our gullets with turkey and spend the next three days in a stuffing filled haze can be a bit overwhelming. Such is the case with DC Comics and the plethora of Batman titles released each week. Since I’m such a Batman fan (he said with much sarcasm), here’s a rundown of the past week’s Bat-titles.
