When I read Batwoman #0 last month, I thought it was the best of the zero issues in that it was the only zero that made me want to read more about the character. So I hit Comixology and I did just that. And I fell hard for Batwoman.
Then I wrote this gushing piece (backofthehead.com), which J.H. Williams III and Dan DiDio were cool enough to read and hit me back on with thanks on Twitter and Facebook.
Now, Batwoman #13 (backofthehead.com), which is amazing. It's part 2 of "World's Finest", the team up of Batwoman and Wonder Woman, and it's proof a team up book between them ought to be a regular thing. Batwoman and Wonder Woman on the Greek Myth version of Arkham Asylum, facing Greek monsters and looking for Medusa. The artwork is unbelievable - there's a two page spread of Batwoman and Wonder Woman going through a maze shaped like her Bat symbol littered with the corpses of Amazons and monsters that I would hang on my wall - and the character beats between Diana and Kate Kane are fascinating, as they get to know, evaluate, anticipate, and slowly try to trust one another.
There was a lot of Wonder Woman in DC Comics' output this week. She was in Justice League, Batwoman, and in her own book, but I liked her with Batwoman the best of the three, which is saying something considering how good her own book is.

That's indeed an interesting topic. I was first introduced to it during a course on ancient Greek warfare, when we discussed the possible role of binge drinking session on Alexander the Great's military campaigns.
