I would have preferred an actual story that informs the reader about the character through the narrative instead of this third person Show 'n' Tell dealie. Some of you are such easy marks for a bad comic drawn nicely--which explains Jeph Loeb's career, I guess. :smt011

I can lend you a copy of Ultimates Vol 3. It's probably just as good.

Still not interested though!

I'll try to Byrne it though. No way am I shelling out cash for that.


What are you talking about? You don't need to Byrne it, that's the whole story. You can pretty much review based on that, maybe glance at the art.

We used to hit 20 pages at least before even Starlord stepped in to attempt to moderate and then storm out. :-(

It may seem like an odd choice for Batwoman #0 to be a Batman story rather than a Batwoman one, but it's actually a brilliant way to introduce the character to new readers. If there's one thing that can prevent a story of nothing but exposition not feel clunky, it's Batman narration. Just think about how this would have turned out if Batwoman herself were giving the narration? Not so nice, right?

There's not much of a story here, and there isn't meant to be, but the art is fantastic, both from Williams and Reeder. I was already sold on Batwoman, and this book didn't do anything to change my mind, but I do think it will serve as a fine introduction for readers unfamiliar with the character.

I'm going to report Jude for spamming us with his reviews of things he got free in the mail.
