Former military cadet, survivor, and lesbian Kate Kane stalks a new criminal High Madame that could only have come out of Gotham in Elegy, one of the best superhero stories I've ever read. Greg Rucka's art is nothing short of beautiful, with breathtaking action sequences and humanizing flash backs, and Williams' story will keep you hooked.
A formidable foe is sucking Gotham into her dark fantasy, only Batwoman can bring a madwoman back to reality and save the city!
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS...
By day, Kate Kane is a glamourous socialite with a troubled past. By night, she is a warrior.
She is the Batwoman, Gotham City's newest protector.
Battling her at every turn of her still-young crime-fighting career is a crazed cult called the Religion of Crime. Led by a Lewis Carroll-quoting madwoman known only as Alice, they plan to turn Gotham City into a wonderland of carnage.
But Alice has something special in store for the Batwoman--something that will show her everything she thought she knew about her life as a caped crusader is wrong.
Is this one-woman army fighting a war she can't win, against an enemy with more power over her than she ever could have imagined?
Writer Greg Rucka (Wonder Woman, Action Comics) and artist J.H. Williams III (Batman, The Sandman: Overture) proudly present one of the most intriguing storylines DC has ever published!
This volume collects the first seven pulse-pounding, visually stunning issues of Rucka and Williams's landmark collaboration (Detective Comics #854-860)--a bold tale of triumph, trauma, and the nature of heroism.
