Batwoman 2 :: Infiltration

Written by: J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman
Art by: J. H. Williams III

This title is a little piece of art in comic format. J.H. Williams III does incredible and intricate work; you can spend hours just looking at the pages for tiny details and surprises; Dave Stewart's colors are vivid and give such ambiance to the diferent settings of the story. I am still amazed at the artistic differences between the "heroics" and the "civilian" sequences; they are like night and day, but both just as beautiful. My two favorite scenes in this issue were the one where Det. Sawyer is running a crime scene for Chase, and the last page at the pier. We also got more of La Llorona, a little bit of Plebe, and the big Bat, who is quite respectful towards Batwoman, which is suprising given that he is always despective to those who come into his turf. "Infiltration" is an amazing issue and a must-have. Want a spoiler? That image in the cover? It actually does happen!
