When the DC Universe-spanning “Court of Owls” event concluded in late 2012, award-winning comics creator Becky Cloonan helmed art duties on most of Batman Vol. 2, #12, the issue that immediately followed the Dark Knight’s face-off with Lincoln March. Scott Snyder, the writer behind the sprawling behemoth’s relaunch of their most popular character’s primary book, wrote a standalone story that Cloonan worked on. Inexplicably, it marked the first time that a woman’s name snatched the “Artist” credit in Batman. “The club of women who have written Batman books (as opposed to the broader set Batbooks which includes titles like Nightwing and Birds of Prey) is very small,” observed DC Women Kicking Ass back then.
