"The Trial of Batwoman"



DC Comics' "Detective Comics" #975, available February 28, 2018 is written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Alvaro Martinez, Raul Fernandez, with covers by Guillem March and Rafael Albuquerque:



"...in 'The Trial of Batwoman', Batwoman faces scrutiny from Batman and 'Red Robin' but stands up for her actions.


"Will Batman allow her to continue bearing his symbol after everything she has done?..."


'Batwoman' is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by 'Batman' and chooses, like him, to put her wealth and resources towards a war on crime as a masked vigilante in her home of 'Gotham City'. 


The identity of Batwoman is shared by two heroines in mainstream DC publications; both women are named 'Katherine Kane', with the original Batwoman commonly referred to by her nickname 'Kathy' and the modern incarnation going by the name 'Kate'.


Batwoman was created by writer Edmond Hamilton and illustrated by Sheldon Moldoff under the direction of editor Jack Schiff...


"...as part of an ongoing effort to expand Batman's cast of supporting characters, debuting in DC Comics stories beginning with "Detective Comics" #233 (1956), in which she was introduced as a love interest for Batman.


The modern day Batwoman is the current lead in "Detective Comics".
