On its own, but depressing when you consider that those pretty pictures could be put to such better use.

How do you even make such a boring lesbian superhero story? Lesbians are usually very exciting!

This comic was an awful jumbled mess. Where was my buxom lipstick lesbian whose only character traits were being a buxom lipstick lesbian? Batwoman by Greg Rucka was all about the pussy eating this comic wasn't about it enough. Yeah this was just not good at all

Batwoman is the Lana Del Rey of comics, everyone spends so much time talking about the stuff around it, the controversy and what it means semiotically or symbolically, they forget that the actual music/actual comics have always been pretty meh.

And I actually quite like LDR, well, I like 3 or 4 tracks. But Batwoman? It's always been a fuss about nothing.

Rucka's run was great, you're the reason my review reads the way it does.

Story
I've been reading this book since the launch of the New 52. With each passing issue I keep hoping that the story will improve and not be such a convoluted mess. Well, it hasn't happened yet and this issue was worse than the previous five. The writing here was fairly boring and I found myself rushing to get through the issue. It did nothing to help explain the events of the previous five issues in a way that makes much sense. It's a shame because I really want to like this book. I just wish the story and dialogue was a s strong as the art.

Art
Since the start of the book the art has been the selling point for me. I was disappointed that Williams wasn't the artist here but Reeder did a wonderful job on the art here. Her art didn't make me miss Williams' work as much as I thought it would. With art this good and writing this bad I almost wish there was no words to ruin the beauty.

Story - 3
Art - 10
Overall - 6.5

Fair enough I guess.

I have to say, I am disappointed in him though. :smt011

I am honoured!

And Rucka's run was not all that.
