How great was the first Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III issue of DETECTIVE COMICS? Wonderful characterization, beautiful, mind-blowing art and a frightening new villain in Gotham. Well, there’s more. In the second part of “Elegy,” Batwoman captures her enemy, a madwoman known only as Alice, who sees her life as a fairy tale and everyone around her as fodder – including Kate. But when the tables are turned, Batwoman finds herself in a hallucinatory nightmare that brings the past crashing into the present, with hints of a threat that could bring a deadly conclusion to the lives of every man, woman and child in Gotham. So…yeah. Not very low stakes at all. So, while I try to get used to all this west coast madness, why not enjoy a few pages from the next issue, which hits 7/29?
