Luther Burbank: His Methods and Discoveries and Their Practical Application is a twelve-volume compilation of Luther Burbank’s original field notes from over 100,000 experiments on plant improvement. The volumes include photographic prints created with a process specially designed to capture Burbank’s experiments.
Burbank (1849–1926) was an American plant breeder who devoted his career to improving disease resistance, bearing time, size, flavor, and more. He developed many new plant varieties including plums, raspberries, apples, peaches, tomato, and corn, as well as many nuts, flowers, and herbs.

Best-selling writer Greg Rucka (WONDER WOMAN) and acclaimed artist J.H. Williams III (SANDMAN: OVERTURE) reveal the shocking origin that set the foundation for one of the DC Universe’s most prominent lesbian characters in BATWOMAN BY GREG RUCKA AND J.H. WILLIAMS III.
Determined to continue serving others after her military career was cut short by bigotry, Kate Kane has taken up the identity of Batwoman, leading a one-woman war on Gotham City’s evil underbelly.
And at the heart of her investigation is the Religion of Crime, a criminal cult led by a madwoman known only as Alice. Speaking in riddles and storybook rhymes, the Lewis Carroll-inspired Alice aims to transform Gotham into her own twisted wonderland.
But is everything Alice says truly mad? Underneath her deranged theatrics, she may hold the key to understanding Batwoman’s past…
BATWOMAN BY GREG RUCKA AND J.H. WILLIAMS III is the visually stunning landmark series collected here in its entirety. Originally presented in DETECTIVE COMICS #854-863, this volume also includes the never-before-collected storyline “Cutter” with guest artist Jock (THE LOSERS).
I was wondering if you know where I could find something like the starter pack you posted on superman but for batwoman? I really appreciated the post, especially since it's so hard to get into comics with so many on the market. Thanks
First, thanks, glad to have helped! A couple people mentioned getting volumes out of the library and whatnot, so I’m glad I was able to steer people in the right direction. For Batwoman I don’t know of there being a similar list, probably because her existence has mostly been a straight line so far - she’s had stints in solo titles and Detective Comics, and that’s been her major material. Well, she was introduced in 52, but that’s a whole thing unto itself; you’d probably be best served by beginning with Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III’s run on Detective Comics that brought her to the forefront, which is being reprinted in full in a softcover on June 14. After that I’ve heard conflicting things about her New 52 solo title, so you might just want to jump right ahead to the current Batwoman title by Marguerite Bennett, James Tynion IV (though he’s only aboard for the first arc) and Steve Epting, and maybe pick up Detective Comics: Rise of the Batmen since it sets up a lot of her current status quo. If you want a straight-up “is Batwoman, particularly current Batwoman, something I care about” selection, I’d say grab Batwoman Begins in Detective Comics #948-949, a fun two-parter by the writers of her current book that shows a lot of what works with her.
There are too many for me to chose from. But here you go.

question: do you think you will be able to have good conversations with
this woman right into old age? Everything else in marriage is
transitory, but most of the time in interaction is spent in
conversation.” — Nietzsche

people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them
by doing what you know is wrong.” — William J. H. Boetcker
Thank you Neil for the new Sandman: Overture. The story and its characters was amazing and it answered so many questions - and it created even more of them! Just what I needed! And the work of J. H. Williams III. and Dave Stewart in this comicbook is stunning! I admire them. The colors gave this book very dreamy/magical atmosphere.
Fanart of Hope. I redraw this from the comicbook. Hope that’s ok! Thanks again, you all inspire me.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
