Bibliophilia: Batwoman: Elegy by Greg Rucka

Batwoman: Elegy – Greg Rucka

I’m a fan of Greg Rucka partly because, like Joss Whedon, he creates great female characters. When so many female characters in books and movies are either garnish that look nice or whiny victims, he creates female characters that are smart, capable, multi-faceted, and frankly, believable. His interpretation of Batwoman here is just such an example. Instead of merely treating her as tits with legs in a tight outfit, she is shown to be a complex and intriguing character. So you have great writing and then ... combine that with the stellar artwork of J. H. Williams ... and you have a definite winner.
