An Openly Gay Writer Marc Andreyko takes over Batwoman

In a pretty good move on DC Comics part, they have a new writer... an openly gay writer for Batwoman.

At the Baltimore Comic-Con, DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio announced that Marc Andreyko will be the new writer for Batwoman. He will start on issue 25. If you are not familiar with Marc's work, then you should be. He has written for DC Comics over the years with: Manhunter, Batman: Streets of Gotham, Bruce Wayne: The Road Home, and Birds of Prey. He also wrote a thriller called, Torso.

He said on his FB page:
yes, it's true: i'm the new writer of Batwoman! and, as i prepare for the interweb onslaught, a few things: i ADORE J.H Williams and Greg Rucka and Hayden Blackman and the great character they've created so lovingly. i am taking this job very seriously and hope to do right by Kate, Maggie, Bette and the rest of the cast. this all happened very quickly, so i am trying to catch my breath and let it sink in. And i've already had great conversations with Mike Marts and can't wait to work with him again. i hope you will give my run a chance as i am going to give it my all and try to live up to the work those great creators did before me.
Marc is a good writer, so I'm sure Batwoman is in good hands. But it still doesn't get DC off the hook.
