Morning Brew – “Batwoman” comic to end with final issue this spring

Good morning!

Kristen Merlin has a new EP out today.


Joan Jett spoke with Rolling Stone about her Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction. Interestingly, Joan is being inducted with her band The Blackhearts, and The Runaways have never been up for the honor. Here’s Joan on that possibility:

That would be a dream. It’s easier for me to talk like this as part of a group. I think the Runaways deserve it because of what we created. I think that’s part of the criteria. If we did, it would be an awesome thing. It would speak a lot to the growth of the way that people look at music. I don’t expect that, necessarily, and I don’t not expect that. We’ll just have to wait and see. It would great if even we were nominated. 

Speaking of, Kristen Stewart says playing Joan in The Runaways movie was one of the most difficult roles she’s had because it was very unlike her.

EW has an exclusive first look at Orphan Black Season 3. Here’s what executive producer Graeme Manson says about Cosima:

Of course, Cosima’s health is still on the table, but near the end of last season Cosima went through something that is perhaps quite mysterious to her with Kira. The stakes will still be high on Cosima’s illness and she still has a very important role in saving her sisters, but there’s more at stake than just science this year.

He also says that each clone’s world gets “a juicy new character to interact with over the course of their season.” Cue Ksenia Solo!

Batwoman #40 will be the series’ final issue. The description for the issue, out March 18:

Where will Batwoman’s adventure with her “anti-team,” The Unknowns take them? And what’s next for Kate Kane?


But in April, there will be another Batwoman Annual.

How did Batwoman find herself in space fighting Morgan Le Fey? How did she find herself accompanied by allies as strange as Clayface, Ragman, Etrigan the Demon and her own sinister sister Red Alice?! All the answers are here in the final chapter of the Unknowns saga!

Thanks for the tip, Peter!
