So, Batwoman #6... wtf was this shit? I tried to start reading from issue #1 but found it completely incomprehensible. So i decided that maybe Williams needed some time to get used to writing without Rucka, so just skipped ahead to issue 6. It was slightly less jumbled, but still not good.
What a shame. Elegy was a great work of writing and art, but it's pretty clear that this book needs a strong writer. Williams is a great artist, and Amy Reeder may be even better, based on her work in Madame Xanadu, but not even great art can save this abysmal storytelling. The scenes seemed very disjointed, like this was a trailer for a comic showing key scenes instead of a full story. The dialog was terrible. I cannot bring myself to give a shit about any of the characters.
At least Kate Kane didn't look like a corpse in this issue, as Dave Stewart seemed to have the month off.
What a waste of talent. Squandering not one but two great artiats on such drivel is a crime, and the art itself becomes meaningless. It like Michelangelo sculpting David out of dog shit. Hire a decent writer and put them on this book asap, or call it a day.
