But apparently in the fantasy land of Batwoman, things work a little differently. A twisted, villainous assassin with a grudge against Kate Kane, the Batwoman. And a mysterious conglomerate out to rape an island paradise, so long as Batwoman and her compatriots stay out of the way, but they’re not going to do that.
Based on what I read her, the story is weak. At this point, all we really need to know is Batwoman is out there, cultivating her own bat-franchise in the world of super-heroes. Satisfying conclusion? No, not really, but we’re only a few issues in to the series. Most likely the lull before the storm, as matters develop things further in the issues to come.
Epting’s artwork is perfect for the series. I like the way he reanders his figures, giving them a lightness, while making them look grounded, rather than simply digitally pasted against a backdrop. I’m not familiar with other series he may have worked on, but the veteran sensibilities and experience show in his work.
