I see this picking up steam after Beware the Batman airs.Characters always become more popular once they've been in a tv show or movie.

@farkosaurus - i never read anything of hers except catwoman. if what you say is true then that's good to hear, because I hate what she's done with Catwoman so far. I was excited about this series, then I read she is writing and got turned off.

Yeah this does look good! She is a great writer also loved her stuff on Daredevil.

Really digging the art.

this guy could have replaced travel fireman in animal man fairly easily imo.

Well, now THAT is some shitty art. 10 bucks this book is on the next wave of DC's cancelled books in less than a year from now.


Thanks for the preview. Was gonna get it, now im not. Just saved me a few pennies >_<

Oh that's just great. Another Sword wielding Asian character. We just couldn't get enough of those can we? Sheesh! I hope it fails!

Yeah... not liking the art, nor the concept. I swear, the decision makers at DC seem to have no idea what they want to do or whats a good idea even. Thank God I dont care about DC Comics or their characters as a whole.

is she like a "big deal" character or something ?
she's got her own toy figure next to Justice League....

looks like a female-DC version of Silver Samurai !

Can we finally have a decent asian american superhero? Who wont have any stereotypes attached with him/her? Whatever happened to ryan choi (the atom)?
