DC Comics is resurrecting the Batwoman character (1959 - 1976) as a lesbian for their "52" series, a collaboration between different writers with serial weekly episodes. DC is trying to introduce superheroes who don't fit the usual white male superstereotype. writes: "Gotham City's sexiest socialite knows more than how to throw a party. Kathy Kane also knows a bit about throwing punches—and she introduces herself to comic book readers by striking her ex-girlfriend right across the jaw."

And if that's not hot enough for you, you can count down the eight days to Glamourcon, the yearly convention celebrating pin-up art, glamour, Playmates, and fantasy women, with Golden Apple Comics. They're very excited about having Linda O'Neil and Dita von Teese at their booth.
