On the surface, the sheer unlikeability of the main character in ‘Thumbprint’ could present a problem. For me, it certainly…

August 30, 2013 9:31 am I agree that the weakness has been the empty-ish characterization... but the ideas are great. I want to like this more than I do right now, but I'll give it another issue. Great review!

March 23, 2013 12:01 pm Great review, BWB. I picked up Batwoman for the "World's Finest" arc because I wanted to check out JHWIII's take on Wonder Woman, but adopted a wait-and-see approach to #18. So I waited, and with your review, I now "see." Gonna head out on my lunch break and pick it up. Thank you (for making me spend more money on comics)!
March 22, 2013 3:05 pm Hey, that's awesome, RCE! I really hope you dig it.
March 7, 2013 9:59 am A really well-written review. I have to admit my first reaction, before reading Paul's POTW, was a disappointed one. For all its beauty, ambiance and gorgeous environments, it didn't seem much was actually *happening* on a straight-up narrative level. Paul, though, describes a level of depth that I missed the first time around and I'm going to give it another, more dedicated read tonight. However, I do wish that, as in the first issues of many great comic works, Casey had infused the story's foundation with some visceral energy, or at least a certified, bonafide hook.
August 19, 2012 3:31 pm Well said, dkb! I totally agree. I don't know why Winnick gets such a bad rap--in general, his titles have always seemed to me to be good, engaging comics, and I thought he nailed this one. I'm not going to dismiss Nocenti without giving her treatment a chance but, yeah, her track record and that interview are trouble portents.
