DC Comics’ ‘Batwoman’ proposes to her secret girlfriend in latest issue

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

LONDON — The British comic blog and critique site, BleedingCool.com reported Wednesday that the latest DC Comics issue of “Batwoman” ends with the heroine proposing to her girlfriend, Maggie Sawyer.

“In Batwoman #17, published today, Kathy Kane, the Batwoman, DC’s leading lesbian lady asks Maggie Sawyer, Captain Sawyer, her secret girlfriend to … be her wife,” wrote Bleeding Cool’s Rich Johnston.

“No idea how well that’s going to go down. And you have to read the build up to this – and the rather dangerous epilogue. There’s no guarantee we’re going to hear wedding bells. But I think that’s a story. I’ve been talking about how much I love this comic for some time, I think it’s DC’s best,” he wrote.

Johnston added, that given the recent controvery suppounding DC Comics’ hiring of Orson Scott Card, an anti-gay activist and board member of the National Organization for Marriage, comic book fans “could probably do with some gay-friendly alternative headlines.”

  8. That’s cool, hopefully her girlfriend doesn’t end up getting killed now… As a comic book female love interest who just got proposed to, her chances of death have now doubled.

  9. Ok, One: why does she look so pale? Who’s drawing on this book? and TWO: This isn’t really good news. Considering this is the batfamily and it s a comic book (a DC comic book no less) That means this woman is going to die soon. Not trying to ruin this little victory, but thats just how they roll. I honestly hope they don’t do that, but i guess time will tell….seriously, why is she so pale? Is this a character thing? Does she put on special makeup of some sort? That would be a good idea actually. You know, make the difference between the two identities more pronounced.

  10. Yeah, why doesn’t DC ask Orson Scott Card to write it?
