Nerdlocker Reviews – Batwoman #1


Cubby – Kate Kane is back in the red and black, and this is one fanboy who couldn’t be happier. While Greg Rucka isn’t writing this book, the undeniable talent of J.H. Williams makes this the bat book everyone should be reading. Not only are his panels energetic, they’re stunning to look at. I read this book twice and had to go through it one more time just to look at the panels and how they’re set up. They’re that good. This book isn’t just about the art. It’s not even about the normal detective work, instead focusing on what seems to be the supernatural. And with a lot of questions raised over the current Question, Renee Montoya, this book definitely has some staying power. I hope everyone stays on this book, cause I don’t want it to get cancelled, ever. I have to give it 5 out of 5 Nerdskulls.

Jazmin – As always, Batwoman is amazing. Along with stellar writing, the art is literally breathtaking. Best book so far. 5 out of 5 Nerdskulls.

Bobby – While I definitely enjoyed the original style of J.H. Williams III, the story didn’t exactly amaze me. Having not read any of the previous Batwoman books, I found this title to require too much knowledge about her past for a number one. DC has boasted that all the new titles were excellent jumping on points for new readers, and that certainly was not the case with Batwoman. The quick attempts to get people caught up were actually quite aggravating because they weren’t spending enough time with the explanation; it was only causing more confusion. I am the first to admit when I am not bright enough to understand a certain style of writing (ahem, Grant Morrison), but this was a scenario where the book just wasn’t clear and concise enough about the Origin. I’m going to give this book 2 out of 5 Nerdskulls.
