Batwoman Writes A Letter. Bring Tissues. (SPOILER)

It had been building in Batwoman. The comic that, if J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman had had their way, would have seen the first married lesbian lead character in mainstream comic books.

But, even though the editorially-mandated absence of wedding bells saw the creators leave the title, it was promised that the pair would, at least, stay engaged. Since only marriage had the effect of aging characters.

However those reading Batwoman of late won't be too surprised by a turn of events today… in which Kathy Kane, Batwoman, leaves a letter for her fiancée Maggie Sawyer.
