PAPERBACK - ACTUAL BOOK

A solid start to the series!

I think they do a great job establishing Kate Kane and her backstory, especially in tying to her to Batman mytho without making her just a female Bruce Wayne, or making the story all about Batman. She stands on her own as a protagonist with a unique point of view and new supporting characters (which is something that I think the Batwoman TV show struggles with).
The art beautifully sets the tone of book, and they do a lot of interesting things with the panel layouts.

4/5 stars, thoroughly enjoyed this first volume, my expectations were met, but was not blown away. They set up some very interested plot threads and I'm interested to see where they go!

Too much romance for me.

A very interesting start to a new series. I hope that they will be able to develop some depth without too much direct linkage to Batman

Batwoman got her own ongoing series at the launch of the New-52 Universe. This first volume reintroduces all the major players in her series and Kate's mission against crime. Some of the most beautiful art in the entire New-52 line.

Been reading comics for 45+ years and graphic novels since they came out BUT these new 52's are some of the BEST yet. Keep them coming DC!

I just started reading DC's new 52. Out of the few I've read so far this one is by far the best. The art, story, & character are awesome. While I am not a big fan of her character for personal reasons, Batwoman this time around has my interest. Be warned though this as well as the 5 or so other 'new 52'titles I've read are mature reads.

I loved the mythology element, especially La Llarona. Who knew dripping water could hold such menace?
