About the Author

William's went on to co-create and pencil the hit series PROMETHEA with comics legend Alan Moore. His recent works include writing and drawing the critically acclaimed DC—The New 52 title BATWOMAN as well as drawing Neil Gaiman's return to the legendary SANDMAN series.

This volume brings Wonder Woman into the mix, to great effect. For someone following Azzarello's excellent series Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Blood (The New 52) I was afraid that this iteration would be too different. Thankfully Williams and Blackman do a great job integrating her into Batwoman's world.
As Always, J.H. Williams astounds with his beautiful visuals. I was glad to note that while they are just as gorgeous as in previous volumes, they were much easier to follow in this one, eliminating the only problem I've ever really had with the series.
Another highlight of the series is the relationship between Kate and Maggie, making DC's recent actions all the more painful. In light of DC's frequent and progress halting "editorial changes", Williams and Blackman have decided to step down from Batwoman. A plot line they planned to implement, which had been green lit by DC months before, was shot down last minute, prompting the creators to leave the book. Worse yet, DC has decided to not let them finish their run. While that tidbit won't affect your enjoyment of THIS volume, I feel it fair to warn any potential readers as to the ultimate fate of this excellent story.
Batwoman continues to be a genre defining series in the comics best volume yet. If you enjoyed the previous volumes, this one is even better. I highly recommend this book, but suggest that you be familiar with the series, if not having outright read everything leading up to it, before you buy this and dive in. An most definite buy.
A magnificent adventure of Wonder Woman. However, if you were to ask me what an adventure of Batwoman looked like, I'm not to sure.
Firstly, like the other two books, J.H. Williams III loves to create some really neat splash pages. Although this is a nice hardcover like the other volumes, it's still glued and a lot of the spreads are lost in the gutter of the book. A sewn-binding or even an omnibus consisting of these first three volumes would be nice. Otherwise, the art is fantastic and gory as always making you gaze in the beauty of some panels and gag at the disgust of others. The writing by Williams and W Hayden Blackman work really well in wrapping this long storyline up. This volume isn't half as confusing as the other two and Wonder Woman is written very well. The dialogue at times is hard to decipher with some pages having several different characters narrating and leaving you to figure out what font belongs to which character but you catch onto it quickly. It was a great story and the zero issue, placed after issue 12, worked well in giving a bit of background information on Kate and her relationship with her father. The extras aren't anything to write home about but are neat to look at. Overall, a nice presentation for a good Batwoman story that isn't tied into the Death of the Family arc that invaded all the other Bat-stories.
Watching Batwoman's interaction with Wonder Woman was fun. Both end up a little bit unnerved, but they made a good team. The D.E.O. trying to spy on Wonder Woman and Kate’s cousin Bette recovering are the side plots.
The last few pages are crazy and hint at big problems in volume 4.
