Okay I just craked the first two pages of Detective Comics #859. Review won’t be up til Friday or Saturday, but can I just say how FUCKING PSYCHED I AM THAT THEY HAVE SCENES OF KATE GOING TO WEST POINT!!!! They even show the ring ceremony! And she says “hooah!” (Even if Rucka DID misspell it, heh heh.)
Kate Kane is officially my favorite comic book character ever, in the history of comic books past, present and future. Speaking as a current (albiet non-West Point) US Army Cadet, these scenes endeared her (and Rucka, for that matter) to me like like no others.
Hooah, Kate! Hooah!
Edit upon reading a few pages further: well that was a kick in the balls. Damn Article 125. Seriously. Never liked it. REALLY pissed off at it now. Although I (obviously) don’t know any fellow service members who are gay, this was a brilliant illustration of why this shit is so unfair. God dammit. And way to go, Rucka.
