Capsule TPB Review, Batwoman: Elegy by Greg Rucka and J. H. Williams III
Worth the trip, and certainly worth the GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) award it garnered, Batwoman: Elegy is dynamic comic book storytelling, beautifully drawn, incredibly panelled, and driven by Rucka's suspenseful prose. Readers also get to enjoy discovering how Katherine Kane (aka Batwoman) met her lover, Detective Renee Montoya. The flirtatious meeting of Kane and Captain Maggie Sawyer, a longtime gay character of the DC Universe, is another gem.
