The comments on the books page say it all, this arc is really rough right now.

I love Batwoman as a character I wanna say that up front. A strong female character, not only that a strong lesbian female character, not only that a strong, female, lesbian character that is not over-sexualized like most other superhero books. I love this character to death. But this arc is really making me doubt keeping it on my pull list.

The vignette-style storyline of the “To Drown The World” arc continues and the villans that were built up last issue seem to have fallen flat this issue. The action is ok but the disjointed story only does its job, it doesn’t do it well.

Again their are good points to it, the Batwoman story has good action, Kate’s story gives us some characterization, and Maggie’s story sets up some drama. Yet unlike the initial issues this book has fallen into being “just a comic book”.

The first issues were really great with sweeping spreads and interesting page layouts. Even last issue had some nice spreads. Not so much this issue. Were juts getting grids and it really hurts the book.

I love amy reeder’s art but the story has fallen flat this arc and the lack of the knock-your-socks-off good art of JH Williams makes this book hard to recommend for anyone who’s not a HUGE kate kane fan, and even those who are like me, are going to have a rough time.

In Short: the current arc is dragging and the art of the first issues isn’t here to save us from pitfalls in overall quality, sadly this book seems to be drowning in this arc

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 3 - Good


  1. I pretty much agree with everything you’ve said here. This is an interesting story done in a very peculiar way that the writing just isn’t strong enough to pull off.

  2. Good review
