Fantastic Illustrations dampened by a so-so storyline
on January 15, 2014
After learning that this was one of the highest rated series from various critics out of the New 52, I was eager to boil into this volume. Ultimately, the artwork blew me away, but I found myself a bit bored with the storyline. I felt like there was too much of an emphasis on the main character's alternate lifestyle, and nowhere near enough on her origin story of becoming Batwoman. Additionally, it never felt like it was in the Batman universe at all, other than taking place in Gotham. I plan on giving future volumes a chance, but this first story arc really didn't do much for me. Bottom line: This is definitely worth reading, but there are better stories in the Batman universe available.
