I good introductory tale for those that didn’t read Detective Comics during the time that Greg Rucka and Williams were using it for Batwoman stories. This zero issue does a good job of bringing people up to speed on Kate Kane/Batwoman, and she doesn’t even talk in it. The story is set up in two parts, that weave in and out of eachother. It’s Batman trying to discover if his suspicions of Kate Kane being Batwoman are correct. The J.H. Williams part covers Batman watching her on a “job” and the Reeder part has Brce Wayne disguised and falling around Kate Kane as a civilian.

Williams and Blackman do a good job at bringing out Kate’s character without her actually doing anything herself. Between her reactions and actions as a civilian, and how she fights as Batwoman, we get a good look at the character. Batwoman has always been on the edges of the Bat-family and it’ll be interesting to see how Batman’s conversation goes with her in the ongoing series.

Williams art is as beautiful as always. He and Reeder do an amazing job of synching up their pages and the layouts, playing and working off eachother. The two totally different styles complement eachother and help strengthen the two sides of the story.
