Une consultation de wikipedia.org m'apprend (car je ne suis pas un expert des DC Comics, et encore moins de l'héroïne en question) que Bat-Woman fit sa première apparition en 1956, que des décisions éditoriales la firent disparaître des kiosques en 1964, qu'en 1985 elle fut officiellement rayée des cadres et qu'elle fit sa réapparition en 2006 dans le cadre de la maxi-série crossover '52'. Ce volume s'inscrit dans cette continuité. Sur fond de tentative relativement convenue d'une mafia confite de magie noire de prendre le contrôle de Gotham City, Batwoman se dresse comme un rempart avec la bénédiction de Batman en personne. Le personnage et ses origines sont présentés, avec un 'scandale' à la clé : Batwoman est lesbienne. L'histoire conçue par Greg Rucka en elle-même n'est pas extraordinaire mais elle est menée avec brio par ce scénariste/dialoguiste. Les origines de Batwoman sont très tragiques comme il se doit de quelqu'un qui souhaite se faire appeler Batwoman. Des parallèles sont à trouver avec le relaunch de Starman (The Starman Omnibus 1) dans la mesure notamment où papa est très présent. Le dessin dans un style 'nouille' ou 'art nouveau' rappelle également le relaunch de Starman mais J. H. Williams III (quel nom !) adopte aussi, selon les différents flashbacks de l'histoire, trois ou quatre styles différents dans lesquels il excelle de manière égale. Williams III est de ce fait un peu le héros de ce livre soigné et recommandable qui présente une Batwoman moderne et intéressante.

Ce tome comprend les épisodes 854 à 860 de la série "Detective Comics", parus en 2009/2010. Ils sont tous consacrés à Batwoman, écrits par Greg Rucka et illustrés par J.H. Williams III, avec une mise en couleurs de Dave Stewart. Il se décompose en 2 histoires.

Elegy (épisodes 854 à 857) - Batwoman opère à Gotham et elle enquête par la manière forte sur la Religion du Crime. Elle reçoit l'assentiment de Batman pour mener à bien cette mission sur son territoire. À partir de sa base d'opérations, elle travaille avec son père qui lui sert de tacticien. En enquêtant, elle finit par se retrouver face à face avec la nouvelle Madame de la religion du Crime : Alice. Elle croise également plusieurs membres d'une tribu d'individus garous aux des animaux totémiques très divers.

Go (épisodes 858 à 860) - Dans cette partie, Kate Kane essaye d'accepter la découverte terrible de la première partie, et c'est également l'occasion pour elle de se remémorer plusieurs moments clefs de sa vie : 20 ans, 7 ans et 4 ans auparavant.

Cette version de Batwoman est apparue pour la première fois dans l'épisode 11 (juillet 2006) de la série 52 (dans 52 1, en anglais), sous la plume de Greg Rucka, puis de manière anecdotique dans la maxisérie "Countdown to final crisis". Ensuite Greg Rucka l'a intégrée dans

Une très belle histoire de Rucka magistralement mis en dessin par Willimans III : découpage parfait de l'histoire et grande inventivité dans l'agencement des cases d'un style Art Nouveau. C'est doute le meilleur de Batwoman... et peut-être, un petit chef d'œuvre de DC Comics.

Ce volume consacré à Batwoman en 6 parties est un succès, Greg Rucka raconte les débuts d'une nouvelle venue dans la famille des chauves souries. Les dessins de J.H WIlliams III sont dynamiques et recherchés, avec des effets kaléidoscopique et des mises en pages uniques. Le scénario est vraiment bien mené, la trame de fond est une enquête criminelle qui devrais être banale, mais en faite ne l'ai pas. Tout y est, l'origine de Batwoman, sa première rencontre avec Batman, ses relations personnelles, des détails sur les qualités de son costumes, sa vie de famille parsemée de flashback bien explicatifs et la résolution de son enquète criminelle. Kate Kane est une personne dynamique et prudente et très bien formée par l'équipe de Batman. Greg Rucka est un scénariste qui ne manque pas d'idées ingénieuses qui s'enchainent dans une histoire à plusieurs facettes. Je vous conseille cette belle histoire.

HASH(0x94203ac8) étoiles sur 5 Amazing artwork and a compelling story 7 juillet 2010
Par Ralph Jenkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The first thing you will notice about this book is the spectacular artwork. Artist J.H. Williams (Alan Moore's Promethea) employs several different styles over the course of the story, but his primary style (for when Batwoman goes into action) is especially beautiful. These pages are painted with a B&W ink wash and then the talented Dave Stewart (Hellboy, The Umbrella Academy) adds the colors, and the result is stunning. It's also obvious that a lot of thought went into the overall design of each page, not just individual drawings. There are even details in the art that you don't really notice until after you've finished the story.

But what of the story? There are plenty of comics that have terrific art but are poorly written. No such worries here thanks to writer Greg Rucka (Queen & Country). This is sort of a "Batwoman: Year One" (with some sections even mimicking the style of Batman: Year One), but it also gives us a memorable new villain in the psychopathic, Lewis Carroll-quoting Alice. Rucka also does a fantastic job of making Batwoman Kate Kane into her own character, and not just a female version of the Batman.

I can only think of a couple of negatives. A couple of the page layouts were so complex that it took a few seconds to figure out the order in which to read the panels. Also, the book ends in a bit of a cliffhanger, and Rucka has now left DC. Fortunately, Williams will be taking over the writing and continuing the story, but it may be a while until the Alice character returns.

This oversized hardcover is highly recommended. It's not that often that such a perfect marriage of story and art comes along.

HASH(0x94203b94) étoiles sur 5 An Absolute Must-Have! 14 juillet 2010
Par V. R. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
From the classy introduction by Rachel Maddow to the voluminous bonus features that end this book, it never ceases to amaze. I collected the Detective Comics issues as they came out, and I never could decide which I liked more - Rucka's story, pitting a more realistic and tragically complex Batwoman against a villian who is so twisted and dark - or is it Williams's psychadelic, uber-detailed, gorgeous artwork? The answer is actually simple: we're so lucky that they worked on this project together.

This collection will take you through Batwoman meeting a major villian in the form of Alice, the new High Priestess for the Religion of Crime, an organization Batwoman seeks to destroy since their previous leader tried to kill her (see52, Vol. 4). She discovers that maybe Alice is a little less crazy that she'd originally thought.

And, of course, Batwoman's "origin" story - what made her want to fight crime, vigilante-style? We learn Kate Kane's chilhood tragedy, personal drive, and unimpeachible integrity. And most of all, we learn that she is most certainly not simply a "female Batman." She definitely has her own style.

Included as bonus material are five beautifully drawn alternate covers, showing us other artists takes on Batwoman. The one by Alex Ross is amazing. Also we get to see a few story boards for important scenes, and early character sheets for Kate that show us her personal style, and a very informative rough of the batwoman costume, with handwritten notes on changes made to it since her debut in 52.

Overall, this book is so worth owning, even if you collected the monthly issues. If I could have made only one entertainment purchase for myself all year, it would have been this book.

HASH(0x94203e70) étoiles sur 5 Amazing Artwork, Great Storytelling, Compelling Superhero 19 juillet 2010
Par turtlex - Publié sur Amazon.com

There's not much that can be said about this impressive volume that hasn't already been said by those professionally involved in the comic community, who have a much more important opinion than mine... but I will try.

From those editors and published reviewers - This story and brilliant artwork have been much lauded; and has earned artist JH Williams III the Artist of the Year distinction from Wizard Magazine and an Eisner nomination.

This graphic novel contains the story arc from Detective Comics issues 854-860. Normally the bastion of Batman, during this time, the care and protection of Gotham has been turned over to Kate Kane ... aka Batwoman. ( please, oh, please do not refer to her as Batgirl )

This intricate plot follows multiple, but clear, storylines. We learn of Kate's family, her military service, her origin as Batwoman. We get a glimpse into her personal life and more importantly, we get insight into her character. Kate Kane is a complete and compelling superhero. Her lines are not always clearly drawn and she has a conscience. It's her need, her compulsion, to SERVE that puts Kate into Batwoman's uniform.

The story is wonderful, Greg Rucka is a very talented writer. It is the artwork, however, which I think brings both Kate and Batwoman to life. It is, simply stated, stunning. The page layouts and panels are brilliantly rendered by JH Williams III. His style draws the reader through the story with a kind of cadence and tempo that is really remarkable. You need only to look into his representation of Kate Kane's eyes to see into her soul. That is saying something.

Much has been written regarding Kate Kane / Batwoman's "outing" as gay in the 52 storyline, and her personal life is continued here, of course. What I can honestly say regarding Kate being gay is that Kate being gay is simply one aspect of a very complex character. And rightfully, her being gay is not made to be a big deal, or a spectacle. It just is. And as written here, Greg Rucka has found a way to incorporate Kate's being gay into Batwoman's origin in a very believable and very real way. Kudos for that. ( This story arc is a 2010 GLAAD award winner for Best Comic Book )

As far as the physical aspects of this book go - this book representation of the Elegy storyline is top rate. The paper quality is outstanding and the artwork by JHW3 and color by Dave Stewart really pop off the page.

We're treated to some nice extras - all the variant covers are gathered ( work by Jock, Alex Ross, JG Jones, Adam Hughes ) as are some preliminary sketches of Kate / Batwoman by JHW3. We're also shown an few pages of Greg Rucka's scripts followed by the associated art, which helps show insight into how comics go from idea to realization.

Without a doubt, this is a must have for comic fans.

And for fans - there's more of Kate to be had ... Kate Kane / Batwoman returns to the DC Universe line-up in late 2010, IN HER OWN TITLE - this time with both writing and art in the capable hands of JH Williams III.

HASH(0x94203d68) étoiles sur 5 Looks aren't enough 20 août 2011
Par Sam Quixote - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I was a bit confused with this book' storyline, this being my first exposure to the world of Kate Kane aka Batwoman. There were references to death cults who previously stabbed her in the heart and this being her second run at an age old prophecy; then there was the inclusion of animal people (who are they? Where did they come from?) I was a bit lost at sea despite being familiar with the superhero world of DC.

I liked that DC made her a gay superhero but didn't make it a big deal or central to the story. It's good to see a company as big as DC embracing equal rights.

But the best thing about the book is something everyone has noted in the reviews - JH Williams III's artwork. It is ravishing! I read "Desolation Jones" a few years ago because I'm a big fan of Warren Ellis' but was amazed at the detailed artwork in the book. The biggest reason for picking up this book was so I could see this artist's work again and boy was it worth it.

As for the writing though, Greg Rucka is a competent writer but by no means a great writer. His work here is average at best; it pushes the story forward but doesn't provide any memorable scenes or great lines. It's your basic Batman/Joker storyline without the Y chromosome.

Which leads me to the villain - Alice. Not only is the "Alice in Wonderland" theme overplayed in the Batman world but Alice is distinctly like Harley Quinn in every way except appearance and only then just barely. She's just not that original a villain.

And if I'm honest, neither is Batwoman that compelling a character. Her origin story is gone into here but as a superhero? She's kind of sub-par. I mean, her dad saves her on two occasions and on another a weird band of animal people save her. I just don't think she can match Batman or even lesser DC superheroes like Aqua Man or Wonder Woman.

The origin story was ok as it contained enough mystery to give the earlier, action heavy opening chapters more depth, but I wasn't as blown away by this book as I'd been expecting given the hugely positive reviews. The book stands out for the art rather than the average writing and by-the-numbers plotting, and while I think Batwoman is an interesting character I feel Greg Rucka isn't the writer to make her a great superhero.

"Elegy" is probably great if you love the character and know her story a lot more than I did and while this can be read more or less as a standalone, it's not nearly as amazing a book as other reviewers have said. It's a decent read just don't expect anything original - except for the exceptional artwork.

HASH(0x942073cc) étoiles sur 5 A promising start for a new character 2 avril 2011
Par Zack Davisson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The new Batwoman was by far the most interesting character to come out of the 52 series. It was obvious that we were going to see more of her. And here it is.

Like the new Batwoman herself, Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III's "Batwoman: Elegy" is a slick and stylish production, with touches of Film Noir mixed with Hammer Horror mixed with Black Hawk Down. Both Rucka and Williams III move nimbly through stylistic and tonal changes, delivering a story that seems much longer than it is. They pack each page tight with action and emotional content. Dave Stewarts coloring manages to keep continuity through all of the art styles, going from full paintings to flat art, keeping some elements consistent like Katherine's bright red hair.

Katherine Kane's sexuality has always been a major part of her character, and it is even more so here without being used to tantalize a male audience. This is not "Batgirls Gone Wild." We learn that she was dismissed from West Point in violation of article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Given a chance to go in the closet and continue in the military, Katherine chooses to tell the truth and accept the consequences. "I'm gay."

But "Batwoman: Elegy" isn't really about politics. It is about the character. Katherine Kane is a complex hero; revenge-driven, like Batman, but more emotionally supported with her father being part of her operation and serving as her "Alfred." She seeks comfort and relationships, but still feels the need to put herself on the line in the name of justice, to serve and protect in a way the military wouldn't allow her.

Yet while the Batwoman herself is a multi-facetted and interesting character, her primary antagonist is less so. I was never really in love with the whole Religion of Crime element of "52." It was a good idea but without many avenues for execution. Here, the Religion of Crime is back with a new leader, Alice, who looks to play Joker to the new Batwoman. Alice is "crazy" in the way too many comic villains are crazy, with a Alice in Wonderland obsession although she goes in more for corsets and garter belts of the Japanese Gothic Lolita look than blue baby-doll dresses and white aprons. Visually, Alice is a nice design and she has a classic back-story, but she never really gets developed beyond being "crazy" and just didn't carry much weight as a primary villain. It seemed like Alice was mainly there to give Batwoman someone to fight while the real story could carry on. Hopefully Alice will be back, and the emotional link between her and Batwoman further developed.

At any rate, I am looking forward to more Batwoman, hopefully with this same creative team. The bar has been set pretty high with this first release.
