    Yes! I have to say, while I like the Batwoman arcs going on, I'm not the biggest fan of them. They just don't do it for me. I want to know what happens to the new Black Mask

    I've liked what Hine's been doing with Arkham. I think that the Arkham "revamp" kind of fit surprisingly well with the other things that have been going on in Batman. It feels quite natural. Even with Jerry Arkham being my top suspect on the Black Mask identity list, I think it works that way, too.

    I like No-Face. I don't know if he'll ever escape, but I think the prospect of a crazy who "copies" a different Batman villain every time is a neat idea.

    I like the Avant-garde look of the rebuilt Asylum. Black Mask "destroyed" the old Asylum, so that kind of furthers my thought that Arkham is Mask II. He had the mad plans to rebuild the place ... so destroying the old house was Step # 1.

    I'm looking forward to it. Sad to see Batwoman go, but she'll be back soon. Glad to see Jeremy Haun stay, too, because of the consistency it'll give this whole "New Arkham" trip.

    Between his Arkham work and FVZA, Hine has been on fire lately.

    And I'm glad that the Arkham Reborn mini wasn't the last installment. I'm happy we'll be getting more answers as to just WTF is going on inside Arkham.

    So what's happening to Batwoman and the Question? I'd heard Kate was getting her own series, but I think it doesn't make sense to separate the two.

    According to Dan Didio, the Question isn't going anywhere, and will remain on Detective as the co-feature for the second year of the co-features. Greg has mentioned Batwoman's ongoing as coming later in the year, but there has been no indication that the Question back-up is coming with it.

    I agree 100% (he also has Spiderman Noir going on as well). I am sure the world has no interest in a continual Arkham book like Hine is writing but he has done a fabulous job on this as well as his Two-Face one shot before. I like his writing on the twisted side of the Batman Universe and hope there is more in the future.

    I have to say I am going to be really ticked if Batwoman doesnt get her own title. Every top list of comics of this year had detective in the top ten, which says just how good it is. Its been fresh and while I love batman, getting a character without years of continuity to bother with has been fantastic. I think its sad to see the best all around series possible end so soon.

    David Hine is a fantastic writer. He's one of the few writers out there who knows how to incorporate verity into comic books. He should get to write a Batman books full time.

    I hope that Huntress remains a part of it. I had a peek at the issue the other day and noticed a great 'Thelma and Louise' vibe going on. It truly was not as bad as I expected it to be.

    There is absolutely no reason to believe she won't.

    She's already getting a title.


    I'm really starting to get frustrated with people saying the character isn't treated well by DC.

    I hope people check this out because David Hine is born to write Batman books after reading his Arkham stories and Two-Face one-shot. They should give him his own Arkham Asylum on-going series focusing on the minds of the patients and mishaps that goes around.

    yes, cannot wait for these issues. Ive just now realized how good David Hine is and i am considering checking out FVZA. The Arkham storyline has been one of my favorites, looking forward to see how the loose ends are tied.

    I highly recommend FVZA and Strange Embrace. Hine at his best.
