Batwoman’s first fight with Alice concludes in Detective 857 (Nov. 09), by Rucka and Williams III.
Abbot lets Kate know that Alice has plans to bring an end to Gotham, with chemical warfare. Kate figures that Alice is likely to attack a military base, and contacts her father. But Alice answers the phone…
It’s a good, suspense-y issue. as Abbot flies after Alice’s plane, and Batwoman jumps from one to the other.
Their fight occurs, though it’s entirely possible to fall into the artwork and not even notice. Alice falls as well, from the airplane, letting go of Kate’s hand, and saying “you have our father’s eyes.”
Not quite up there with “Luke, I am your father,” but good enough to give Kate some sleepless nights.
Renee Montoya is getting pissed as this chapter of the Rucka/Hamner Question series begins.
She meets with Tot over the internet, and they share information, as she gets the address of the next man up the chain.
She uses her usual charm and tact, bursting into his home to confront him. This time, it is clear that his bodyguards are not really working for him, and killing him has been ordered to ensure his silence. Things don’t look good for Renee!
The story continues in the next issue, although the Question also appears in the Annual, which comes first.
