Love the art in this book. Enjoyed the story quite a bit, too. ( )

When DC first announced they were bringing back Batwoman, I was skeptical that it wasn't a publicity stunt to resurrect an old character with a new spin (she's a lesbian now, guys!) to grab headlines. I'm pleased to report I was totally wrong.

Usually when I review DC's Batman compilations, I feel the need to break them down issue-by-issue to acknowledge the fact that there are bad issues and good issues. Elegy works really well as a cohesive whole - I couldn't tell you what my least favorite issue was, as I'm not sure where one begins and another ends.

JH Williams III is as amazing as he as ever been. Look at the hidden words in Kate's memories when she's been poisoned! Check out how the panel borders and layouts change when Kate stops being Kate and starts being Batwoman! The fight-sequence-in-one-page when Kate jumps onto the plane! Hell, even just Kate dancing with Maggie Sawyer (DC: you need some more new lesbian characters) is wonderfully done. I could go on and on. There's a reason they're putting him together with Gaiman for another run at The Sandman.

The plot is really great - the twist is one that you don't see coming, but looking back, you can see where Rucka planted the clues. The origin story issues are just absolutely phenomenal -- as Rachel Maddow points out in her introduction to the collection, the sequence where Kate comes out to her father is absolutely heartbreaking. Rucka just delivers on Kate as a character every step of the way here, and does a great job of giving her her own "Yes, father" moment when she manages to save herself from a mugger before Batman even shows up.

I'm baffled why DC doesn't take more steps to integrate Kate into the larger Bat-family. She's a helluva character, and this is a helluva book. (Plus, I'd get a charge out of the moment when Bruce and her show up to some charity ball in the same tux.) ( )

Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III’s Batwoman: Elegy collects Detective Comics nos. 854-860. The story takes place after the events of 52 and Final Crisis, with Batwoman, real name Kate Kane, working to keep Gotham safe following Bruce Wayne’s apparent death and Dick Grayson’s donning the mantle of the Bat. During 52, Batwoman fought Intergang and narrowly escaped their attempts to sacrifice her as part of their religion of crime. Now, she learns that they have a new leader arriving who believes herself to be Alice Liddell, who was acquainted with Lewis Carroll and may have partly inspired the main character in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

“Elegy” forms about 2/3 of this book, with the remaining 1/3 offering a fuller origin for Kate Kane, including her dismissal from the military due to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Rucka draws upon the experiences of Dan Choi, who challenged the policy and was instrumental in getting it repealed, in issue no. 859, with Rucka and Williams including Choi in a brief cameo. From there, Kate Kane became a vigilante until her father discovered her doing it. Coming from a family committed to honor and service, he supported her, but insisted she get the necessary training to stay safe, even helping her put together her first Batwoman costume.

The combination of J.H. Williams III’s art and Dave Stewart’s colors create one of the most visually-dynamic stories in comics. Williams uses the layout of the panels to tell a dynamic story matching Rucka’s text, often creating triptychs and diptychs evocative of religious iconography while Stewart adds color that gives each page its own character. Stewart draws upon the red, white, and black color palette of Batwoman’s costume to imbue scenes with a neo-noir aesthetic that visually distinguishes Batwoman’s scenes from the messy, dreamlike colors of Alice’s world or the realistic colors for scenes of Kate Kane’s civilian life.

This volume concludes with a cover gallery and script pages from Rucka and Williams, showing how Rucka described scenes for Williams to execute with his art. Elements of this story were adapted for the first season of the CW’s Batwoman series. ( )

Not necessarily fond of the lesbian angle, but a good comic overall. Prep for the DCnU forthcoming title. ( )

Some bits of the ongoing story had me confused a couple of times, but you eventually figure out what is going on with that part of the story. The rest of the story? Excellent. Good characters, with good dialogue and a good plot. In a comic book? Yup. This has one of the most believable set-ups of any comic I've read. Batwoman has good motivation, and her abilities are explained in a way that makes you wish more comic books would have their heroes use common sense and actually listen to good advice. ( )
