This is a big deal. A lesbian superhero is getting her own comic book. The popular character Batwoman – aka lesbian Kate Kane – will branch out from the Detective Comics anthologies this July as the star of her own comic book. For DC comics to launch this title means history is about to be made. And it’s not just a gimmick.
One of the artists behind Batwoman’s evolution, J.H. Williams III, is at the helm and is committed to making her a complex rather than simply salacious character and the fan base is already stoked for the first issue. In other words, someone somewhere is about to write a script for Kristen Stewart’s agent to read. Yes, that’s speculation. And yes, Romeo is already fantasy-casting the movie. Why not? It should happen.
