Those are too sweet.

I'm so looking forward to this.

I like the fact that he's attached to the fedora and suit.  That picture of her walking.  Much more disconcerting I think than Vic.

Re: New Question Stories begining with Detective #854

I may need to get over my long-standing feud with my local comic store guy and investigate this. I'm still of mixed feelings on Renee, but I love Hamner's art.

Re: New Question Stories begining with Detective #854

On wordballoon.com they have an interview with Greg Rucka about his stuff on Detective comics. It's pretty informative about whats coming and Rucka's mindset when dealing with Montoya as The Question. But it makes me wince because I have this beautiful idea for a Question comic, god I want to write so bad.

Re: New Question Stories begining with Detective #854

I've bought Detective Comics #854 and I think it is superb. Easily one of the best beginnings to a new series I have ever read. Kate Kane is without doubt, my favorite bat-character. J. H. Williams III is one of the best comic book artists I've seen, and since reading the Batman trade 'Snow' I'd be interested to know if he has much creative input into the writing of Detective Comics, since his writing skills were, in my opinion, fantastic.

I was very impressed by The Question short, apart from the fact that it was much too short. The art took me a while to get used to. since the colour scheme made me think very much of the recent Blue Beetle series. I loved the idea of Renee and Tot setting up a website to help them help others. It' nice that with a new Question,new, more contemporary methods are being used. I wasn't  huge fan of Renee's outfit. Her going blonde when in uniform seems very odd and I wasn't sure if I liked the all blue suit: seemed more. tacky than referential.

I'm still a huge fan though. I read an interview it Rucka that says he is planning to address Vic's romance with Helena Bertinelli in 'Huntress: Cry For Blood' when she makes an appearance in an upcoming issue. That alone has me on the edge of my seat. This is without doubt the best comic book out there at the moment.
