Writer: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eddy Barrows
DC's second longest-lasting title returns to its original numbering, this time as an exciting and engaging team book... a family book, it could even be argued. Batman recruits cousin Batwoman to co-lead an eclectic ensemble of crime fighters, and prepare it for a yet unseen -albeit ominous enough to worry Batman- menace hiding in the shadows.
Covers by Eddy Barrows and Rafael Albuquerque
For four years many fans were clamoring for the return of Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain; many others were lamenting the way in which Tim Drake had been basically demoted from his station as Robin and nearly removed from the Bat-Family; and with the arrival of 'DC You,' Batwoman had been all but forgotten. 'Detective' brings all these characters to the forefront once again and returns them to their earned places in the Batman mythos, thanks to writer James Tynion IV.
Batwoman by Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, and Adriano Lucas
The art team of Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira, and Adriano Lucas, however, is the show stealer in this issue; their work is impeccable. All in all, this is a well executed book that sets the bar quite high for the rest of the run.
