This Makes Owesome a Happy Panda

Context: DC's western title Jonah Hex had been criticized for utilizing rape as a plot point like every other issue. So, when the first issue of the relaunched Bat Lash (ostensibly a lighter-toned book) ended with a female character being threatened with sexual assault, many people- myself included- just kind of held their heads in their hand and groaned.

Which is why the Newsarama preview for issue two makes me very happy indeed.
I know its just co-incidence that this comes a couple of days after the Something Positive cartoon but I'd really, really like to see this be a trend.
