Nope, you are an ass, as proven when you actually reviewed that Hellboy, if I reviewed Batwoman... then I would be an ass.

If you have weird personal preferences, at least stick to them.

Can we leave this bullshit behind and just agree that we're all asses? Punchy hates the DC marketing dept. so he won't read this and Fourthy won't enjoy Hellboy as much in three years if he's already read it once before.

Mind you this is half the reason I've decided I'm not coming back.

That and Bluestreak is actually competent, so I can't question his leadership. :lol:

Not to stir shit even further but I'm on fourthy's side.

On its own, Batwoman #0 is a very good book. W. Haden Blackman and J. H. Williams III do a superb job of not only making this introductory issue new reader friendly but also interesting enough that existing fans would be entertained rather than bored. Futhermore, the split level story telling technique showed that these creators have enough respect for their fans and their craft to provide an intersting technique, even in a "trhow away" comic.

The art is nothing short of phenomenal, and is worth the cover price alone.

That being said, I probably won't be buying #1. I have tried Batwoman comics many times, and its not the writing, art, or even the character that I do not enjoy, its the story. The reason #0 was enjoyable was because we saw everything through Batman's eyes and didn't have to hear too much about the Cult of Crime and all that comes with it. For whatever reason, I jsut can't get into that group as her primary antagonist.

For anyone who has read and liked previous Batwoman books, you should enjoy this, and for new readers, if you like #0, try #1 in February and tell me how it is.

Story - 8
Art - 9
Overall 8.5
