I'm not sure exactly why most of this issue happens, but it sure is cool.
In the wake of Grayson, Batwoman is the new Bat-related international adventures book.

First Look at Manapul's Detective… and Batwoman?
Soon to be Detective Comics artist (and co-writer) Francis Manapul has been posting some sneak peeks on his Instagram account. Based on some layout photos he posted earlier, this seems to be an upcoming cover, potentially for April's #30?
But it doesn't stop there… He's also been posting some art featuring Kate Kane… you know, Batwoman?
Uuuuh? At first I thought Batwoman may just appear in an issue of Detective, but then I got to thinking, especially after Manapul answered a fan question saying his work on the character would be just a "small appearance." The art looked very Batwoman specific, including characters like her sister Alice, who would seem out of place in Detective Comics… but you know where she wouldn't be out of place? That Batwoman Annual.
So if Manapul is solicited next month drawing at least a couple of pages for that Batwoman Annual, don't expect me to be surprised!
