I’m glad I remembered this one. I saw this cover a month or two ago on a Wednesday after writing the comic cover post for that week, and I told myself that I’d remember it for the following Wednesday, but I didn’t. Luckily, something about it stuck and I thought of it immediately after seeing the cover for the latest Batwoman issue earlier this week. This cover is for Batwoman #5, and in addition to being incredibly beautiful, I also find it a little unsettling. Kate Kane’s turmoil is depicted so well that you can’t help but internalize that emotion a little, or at least not in my case.
This cover, and the others in Batwoman’s flagship series, was done by JH Williams III who has a website you can check out if you’re interested. Williams also just won two Harvey Awards this past weekend at the Baltimore Comic Con for Batwoman, one for Best Artist and one for Best Cover Artist.
