Rachel Maddow is a Batwoman fan. She wrote the introduction to the Batwoman: Elegy collection by Greg Rucka and JH Williams III.
She also went on Seth Meyers in 2014 to talk about… Batwoman.
So there's a history.
Which is why it was a nice surprise – and possible overreading – to find this in the new Detective Comics #934 published today, in which Batwoman talks about her new special someone.
Okay, so that's Rachele with an 'E'. Is this a stretch? Or a sweet in-joke for the DC Comics crew? Will Rachele's job be confirmed as a TV show host and pundit? And can anyone confirm the nature of Rachel Maddow's avocado on toast?
The comic, which creates a new Batman "team" in response to someone watching the vigilantes of Gotham, also has another revelation. But more for Bruce Wayne than for Kathy Kane… Detective Comics #934 by James Tynion and Eddy Barrows, is published by DC Comics today.
