On Newsarama's blog, there's an interesting article about Cully Hamner's design for the new Question, as personified by former Gotham City Police Detective Renee' Montoya:

"As the Question, Renee's chin dimple is still apparent. It's the kind of thing other characters shouldn't notice but will act as a subconscious reminder to
readers that this is Renee'."

This is the sort of thing that used to drive me crazy. This is a mask that obscures the face, including the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. And yet a chin dimple shows through? That makes absolutely, positively no sense whatsoever. And why does there need to be another Question anyway? There's no need for these constant legacy characters showing up. Get your own superhero identities, you slackers!

That dimple thing aside, I really like the artwork...

Saw some of her snazzy new outfits the other day. Looks pretty cool, at least.

And we all know why legacy characters take the name of their predecessors, right?
