    One of the best Batman stories of the decade...

    Running through the pages of, "Detective Comics,"from 2009 to 2010, "Batwoman: Elegy," represents one of DC's most ambitious, and successful projects of the post-modern era. Worth the price of admission for the art alone, "Elegy," follows newest-Gotham-hero Kate Kane, as she attempts to find her way in a world that doesn't seem to want to let her do good. A top cadet, Kate was kicked out of the army due to her lesbianism. Wanting some way to fight the evil that took her family from her at a young age, Kate moves back to Gotham and decides to become her own kind of hero. Writer Greg Rucka creates one of DC's most compelling protagonists in this story arch, molding her into a kind of ironic statement that goes against everything you would expect, "Batwoman," to be. The villains are creepy, the supporting cast exciting, and the plot is well, perfect. "Elegy," proved so successful that Kate Kane was given her own on-going series in September 2010. Readers should pick this up now, and get in on the excellence.
