Lesbian Batwoman? Coach is Sooooo There.

Bat Fans Get a Peek at DC Comics' Revamped Batwoman

Picture_1The first panels from DC Comics' latest addition to its superhero universe give Bat fans a glimpse at Batwoman's not-so-secret identity: a lesbian.

DC recently redesigned Batman's former love interest as gay -- a move that sparked outrage among the comic book community when it was first announced in 2006.

Todd Klein, who is inking the script for the miniseries, posted the panels (right) on his blog along with a short note:

"Written by Greg Rucka with stunning art by J.H. Williams III, this miniseries is moving slowly, but I’ve lettered the first issue, and it looks and reads very well indeed."

This marks Batwoman's first major comic book return since 1979, after a brief stint last year in DC's weekly series 52.
