The DC Gotham City Women Re-Launch

With all the Batman hoopla, you’d come to expect some word on the ladies of Gotham City fame. DC’s blog confirmed that word not too long ago and here are the findings:

Batwoman #1 by J.H. Williams III, Haden Blackman and Amy Reeder
No surprise here – probably just as fitting to launch in this time frame given all the delays it’s experienced.

Batgirl #1 by Gail Simone and artists Ardian Syaf and Vicente Cifuentes
I’m not sure what to think of this. Bryan Miller has been writing some excellent Stephanie Brown arcs the last year or two. This may be a result of Batman’s plans to have Stephanie train in England. I don’t know. Still, Simone might just turn my opinion on this around.

Catwoman #1 written by Judd Winick and illustrated by Guillem March
Don’t love or hate Catwoman, but I’m a fan of Winick and I’m sure good work will come out of it.

Birds of Prey #1 written by Duane Swierczynski and Jesus Saiz
The description of the book screams “Uncanny X-Force” if we’re taking the article at its word. Then again, comics have been copying off of each other for years, so who am I to judge.

    So lets see…

    Batwoman: Pretty pictures, I’m not sold on the writer. But we will see if this can actually get off the ground this time. I like her but I doubt this one will make my pull list given all the others I want to get.

    Batgirl: Babs? No thank you… first fail of the relaunch in my eyes.

    BOP: So we have Ivy- Awful new look, Canery – Awful new look, Katanna – Looks like a manga/anmie reject, and the last one I am gussing is roulette or thorn. Either way this looks awful, and I will miss the great line up they had going. And this makes the second fail of the relaunch.

    Catwoamn: Yes please!

    Batgirl has the most potential to backfire on DC of the Bat books. ¬†You’d be surprised how passionate the fans are about Stephanie Brown as the character – heck they’re passionate about how Cassandra Cain should still be Batgirl.
