The folks over at DC announced this morning that Eisner nominated artist J.H. Williams III would be reprising his role as the ink slinger for an ongoing Batwoman series. Williams will also be penning the series along with co-writer W. Haden Blackman. Amy Reeder will jump on board as the main artist for the second story arc.

Here’s what Williams had to say:

“Our goal is to tell a riveting action adventure tale with some heart and drama to it,” Williams said. “We want the reader to learn even more about who Kate Kane is as Batwoman — showing why she is an important addition to the Bat Family of heroes beyond what has already been addressed. We are also wanting to really make sure we start building additions to her own “rogues gallery.” Just how will Kate deal with the fallout between her and her father, Jacob? Will Kate be able to find love other than Renee Montoya, a.k.a. The Question? And as far as flavor — there will be a sprinkle of creepy beings, myth and legends, government agency intrigue, and a surprise return of a fan-favorite character.

“This is going to be an amazing opportunity for Haden and I. To say we’re excited about this prospect is a bit of an understatement. In addition to this, having the chance to work with Amy will be a real pleasure, her work is fantastic, and I’ve thought so ever since first encountering it sometime ago.”
