When DC burned the boats in the harbor and re-started the entire comic studio with the New 52, this Batwoman book is the kind of excellence fans were hoping for. Batwoman is interesting, alluring, complex, and sizzling hot. She is a red-haired ravenness, an openly lesbian character, and has the best costume of any superhero of the DC Universe so far.

In a quick, rapid-fire 20 or so pages, we meet her, see her in action, and get a speedy montage of her backstory. Other artists need to take lesson from this artist. He uses the comic medium so eloquently that he can give us a range of emotions, story outlines, and events in one uber-detailed splash page. Some of these pages are so gorgeous I was tempted to study them for hours. (But there are so many comics, and so little time).

This book passes the two big tests: the "read it more than once test." Do I want to re-read the issue? Of course. Test number two- do I want to read the next issue? Another resounding "yes!"

I can't wait to see what happens in the next issue. Hurry up, give it to me, DC!

Verified Purchase
J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman (writers and artist) put together a decent Batwoman 1 story, just enough info to keep you guessing what's going on and luring you deep into a twisted storyline that of course leads to Issue 2.

The story starts with a mysterious, ghost-like thing that captures children - they call her La Llorona, "the weeping woman." Not much is known of her, except when we get to the centerfold of the comic and find a thirteen year old (see the hand) dead and another missing.

While the detective scene is going on in the investigation of this weirdness, the writers add a few more tidbits: Batwoman, Kate Kane that is, has daddy issues and we see flashbacks from Batwoman Elegy, a fine graphic novel, by the way.

We also get to know Kate's lover. There is one scene where one of the characters is partially nude, but she's merely putting on her uniform - tastefully done.

Another point of plot is the investigation of Batwoman and Gotham by an Agent Chase, a professional spy and a woman, who is being run by a creepy guy in a skull mask and want to know about an organization called Medusa. Wow, what's that all about??

Story & Art:

Unusual panels in many of these pages makes for some interesting reading. The pictures flow across the page or across the whole centerfold, making for some action scenes interspersed with discussions between Flamebird, Batwoman and her dad.

There are however too many topics thrown at the reader at once, and I think a bit of editing would have helped build a stronger case for Issue 2. However, when Batman comes on the scene in the last panel, I get extremely curious!

Bottom Line: Good start to an interesting character.

In its new incarnation Batwoman continues to be a stunningly beautiful comic book. And a good read. So far the only one of the new DC comics I'm looking forward to seeing the second issue of.

This comic is awful. Nothing more than making batwoman into a lesbian porn star. Great job DC. You have managed to reduce a potentially great female character to nothing more than a sex object. I was really looking forward to a great story about this character. I thought the lesbian angle was interesting and she would be a great character. I guess I gave DC far too much credit. They seem to be incapable of writing an interesting female character. She must always be in porn star mode. I suggest picking up Buffy season 9. Buffy is a strong female character that isn't naked through half the comic. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a sex scene here and there. And being sexy is fine. You can be sexy and strong. I just think it's a slap in the face to woman to have every single new 52 female character naked in this first comic. Wonder Woman, Batwoman, and every other comic I picked up with a female character of the new 52 were naked at some point. Its sad how these people refuse to see women as strong individuals and instead constantly portray these woman as sex objects.
