Best-selling writer Greg Rucka (WONDER WOMAN) and acclaimed artist J.H. Williams III (SANDMAN: OVERTURE) reveal the shocking origin that set the foundation for one of the DC Universe's most prominent lesbian characters in BATWOMAN BY GREG RUCKA AND J.H. WILLIAMS III. Determined to continue serving others after her military career was cut short by bigotry, Kate Kane has taken up the identity of Batwoman, leading a one-woman war on Gotham City's evil underbelly. And at the heart of her investigation is the Religion of Crime, a criminal cult led by a madwoman known only as Alice. Speaking in riddles and storybook rhymes, the Lewis Carroll-inspired Alice aims to transform Gotham into her own twisted wonderland. But is everything Alice says truly mad? Underneath her deranged theatrics, she may hold the key to understanding Batwoman's past... BATWOMAN BY GREG RUCKA AND J.H. WILLIAMS III is the visually stunning landmark series collected here in its entirety. Originally presented in DETECTIVE COMICS #854-863, this volume also includes the never-before-collected storyline "Cutter" with guest artist Jock (THE LOSERS).
