From issue #14

BIRDS OF PREY #13
Written by GAIL SIMONE
Art and cover by JESUS SAIZ
Things get ugly as The Birds of Prey are trapped in a cunning puzzle box of a skyscraper, pursued by a nightmarish killer who holds all the cards, leaving only the Huntress, the reluctant aide…
Should the solicit also say “the Huntress, with the reluctant aid of Renee Montoya,” rather than “the Huntress, the reluctant aide of Renee Montoya,” because that phrasing is bothering me.
In other news: I ship this so very very hard.
The preview of Batman, Inc is up and this issue looks like a pip. The current Batwoman, Kate Kane is in it as well as the first Batwoman, Kathy Kane (who is dead in continuity). Confused? Of course, it’s Morrison! The artwork is by Chris Burnham who DC announced has gone exclusive this morning.
So what does Kathy Kane, the first Batwoman look like?
Wish I could be as excited as everyone else in the notes but:
A) I really distrust Morrison with Kate Kane. Her appearance in Batman and Robin read more lilke a checklist of things he knew about her (she has a father! She’s gay! She wears a wig!), without actually bothering to - y’know, write her as a character.
B) Those Black Canary-esque Kathy Kane panels just remind me that the last person to acknowledge that Dinah is a superlative motorcyclist was Judd Winick of all people. I miss her being written like she has actual hobbies and personal interests.
Yes I did just piggyback a Batwoman post to rant about Canary’s. Sue me.
During SDCC DC Comics confirmed that Renee Montoya won’t be showing up in the new 52. Not surprising actually as the writer most associated with her, Greg Rucka, has said that his conversations with DC “made it very clear they had no interest in seeing Renee continue, either as the Question or not.”
But not to fear Renee fans because today I bring you part two of the quite simply terrific fan made comic, Tattered Remains, which I posted about last year. The comic by the team of artist Krystal Beisick and writer Valerie Renee continues Renee’s adventures in a pre-52 Gotham where the Barbara Gordon as Oracle still exists and is working with the Birds, including Helena “not a fake ID burned on page” Bertinelli.
And like last year’s edition, it is an absolute joy to read. This edition has Renee revisiting key moments in her past. Here’s a look:
If you’re familiar with Renee from Gotham Central and Batwoman you’re going to enjoy especially enjoy this as it addresses some plot points from those titles.
Renee! Renee! Renee!
Obviously, I am happy this comic exists.
