Kanes by ScaryKrystal Kanes by ScaryKrystal
February 2013. Batwoman (Kate Kane) and Hawkfire (Bette Kane) of DC Comics.

I LOVE Bette's new costume. It's very Nightwing, which I think is great. I want these two to become their own version of the Dynamic Duo very badly! And welcome back Alice... I've missed you.

Not sure how I managed to miss that one until now, but it's awesome! (and, wow, it was posted on my birthday, too! Double awesome! :D) Damn, now I wish this were the cover for the upcoming Batwoman annual… oh well.

Wow but this is mind-blowingly good! You have, as always, managed to capture the essence of the characters and somehow managed to make them your own too. It's lovely to behold.

And call me greedy but I simply cannot wait to see what you have in store for us next. :-)

Wow, thank you so much! =) I'm so glad you like how I portray them. I always hope that I do the characters justice!

Do or do not. There is no try. ;-)

But seriously... yes, you always manage to do so and your understanding of them shows, never mind that your artwork keeps gets better and better. For example, your f/f pieces, which I simply adore and can very much relate to, aren't gratuitous. Yes, Kate and Renee are beautiful and sexy but they are/were also a *couple* and in love. It's gorgeous and makes me incredibly happy and proud to see us finally represented properly.

Thank you again, really, for all the kind words! It really inspires me to work harder. =) I love that other people can get some kind of enjoyment or relate to the things I draw. Drawing always been something I just do for fun in my free time, and getting to chat with someone like you makes it all the more enjoyable for me!

And I agree, characters like Kate make me proud! We're slowly covering more ground, aren't we? ;)

You are most welcome! It's a true pleasure to keep you inspired. You're a most talented woman and I've yet to meet the artist who doesn't need encouragement, an appreciative audience, and/or a muse now and then.

Yes, I most definitely can relate to your artwork and that is why I keep coming back for more. Kate, Renee, and Maggie make me more and more proud to be out and open. The closet is a very stifling place and it's great to see more visibility for us. It's been a long time coming.

By the way, I do hope you don't mind if I am using your art for wallpapers on my iDevices. I simply keep gravitating back to your work as they make me and my eyes most happy indeed. I could look at it all day long... and all night... and all day again. :-)

Thank you! The comics have gotten better! I enjoyed the Wonder Woman issues, and I'm looking forward to what's coming next. Of course, it would always be better with Renee, wouldn't it? ;)

sure thing! I've gotta get back to writing about her though, I've been slacking off!

I've been reading the comics, almost caught up. Looks good so far though I still miss Rucka's writing.

Gorgeous work... though I've got to say, I'm not fond of "Hawkfire" as a codename.

Thank you! And yes, I agree, I don't think Hawkfire is the best name. I think even "Firehawk" would have been better!

Unfortunately that's been taken by an obscure Firestorm supporting character. I don't know what was so wrong with Flamebird.

Beautiful work! I'm a big fan of Bette's costume too, and just super-excited that she's back in action. And yes, Alice returns :D I would love to see more Batwoman/Wonder Woman team-ups. Maybe a regular book? Worlds' Finest is taken but maybe Brave and the Bold?

Oh god, I would LOVE to see more Batwoman/Wondey. They should be the new Batman/Supes.

And thank you very much!

Definitely! Or at least have Batwoman guest star in Wonder Woman's solo title at some point. I'd love to see Cliff Chiang draw Kate.

Great art, as usual. :D

Honestly, the new costume was literally the only thing I liked about this latest issue of Batwoman, or really the whole book since it started out. I also find them bringing back Alice really weird and, since Rucka has said he wants to finish that story, very disrespectful to him.

Thanks, pal! =D I'm glad you like it! Yeah, her costume reveal was awesome!

Did Rucka say he wanted to finish that story? I'm trilled to have Alice back myself, but that would stink for him. Although I'm sure of all the people at DC, he would trust JH the most with it, since it's very unlikely he'd ever be back on Batwoman. I just want to know her story so badly!

He said in the past that he wanted to do that story with JH one day, but when asked about it on Tumblr, he said that he's fine with it and realized it was kind-of a pipe-dream.

And I dunno, I guess Williams probably has the most experience with the character, I just don't think he's a really good writer, and I think I just want to see them go in a different direction with her.

This is awesome!! Love what you did with Bette's new outfit. Hopefully she'll be around with Kate for quite a while now! We know that the crazy little hook-crab is still out there... XD
