The new Batwoman 0 hits the shelves this week. This one is an interlude into the current story arc, while still giving us previously unknown details and expansions of some of Kate’s past, especially some of her training. What is equally exciting to us is this also is very much about Jacob Kane, Kate’s father, and their relationship. It gives some insight into who Jacob is a bit more, while alluding to just how a military minded man, which is normally about unity acting in a team capacity, was in a mindset to support his daughter going it alone as a vigilante. And it teases some hints about some things and ideas to come.
Stylistically the issue was an interesting challenge, adopting a different art style for large portions of the story and a more simplistic design approach by removing the idea and use of any double page spreads, which Batwoman is notorious for, results as the perfect choice for the type of story being told. This combined with a continuation from issue 12 in the use of heavier prose like captions makes for an issue of Batwoman unlike any that have come before it.
