My interest just peaked about 15 minutes ago... Ineed to read about this new bat friend. Only problem, there's not really a reading list. Here's what I have on hold at my local comic store so far:

Infinite Holiday Special 1
52 week 2, 7, 9, 11, 27, 28, 30, 33, 47, 48

Does anyone else know something I don't know?

Thanks,
Frosty

Death of Superman. Death of Captain America. Both got massive news coverage.

The only reason the media was interested was because she is a lesbian and her name ties her to a well known comic book character.

Good point, just implying the trivial issue they decided to raise.

For me it was that, and also because it doesn't further the story in any way. Some may argue that she is a former love interest for Montoya, that her relevance stems from what was and what could be. But really, it would have been a lot more compelling if she had been the Question's love interest, given his current...state.

I see it as a marketing ploy to pull in homosexual readers, but given the amazing work they've been churning out on a weekly basis, I can't see why they would need such a lame gimmick.

Ah well, crazy DiDio and is idiotic shenanigans! \:\-p
