In the latest issue of “Batwoman (#17),” which is in stores today, our leading lady Kathy Kane has a certain request of girlfriend Detective Maggie Sawyer. And it’s the not kind that (usually) involves handcuffs and bad guys either.
The proposition is beautifully illustrated and written by J.H. Williams III and Haden Blackman as the two ladies share a kiss and then- a question. And a cliffhanger!
Will Mags say yes? Will something terrible and super-distracting happen before she can answer? Will she wait to see the ring? Will this be the first superhero couple to actually last? And can this please set a precedent for more LGBT characters and relationships in graphic novels? Can humans even marry bats???
Here’s hoping. Cheers, you crazy kids!
