Batman Eternal #3 came out today (very minor spoilage to follow).
This is the issue that marks the return of Stephanie Brown. In it she discovers her father’s secret identity and ends up running for her life. She comes across as a normal teen, but one who keeps her wits about her when endangered and faced with a shocking revelation. She’s also given a great deal of space in the issue. An obvious indication that she’s meant to be someone important to the story.
A year ago I said that if she came back, I’d pick up one than one copy. Of course, I didn’t know it would be a weekly, but I’ve signed up for three copies each and I’m giving two of the copies away to women who are Bat-fans, but not regular readers. I haven’t pushed for any feedback yet, because it’s early on, but I’m happy. Now we just have to wait for Cass.
