Batwoman 3 :: Gaining Stream

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

Things start to spin out of control for Batwoman in the third chapter of "Hydrology" thanks to J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman. You would think that a horrific encounter with the Weeping Woman is enough to ruin one's night, but for Batwoman this was just the tip of the iceberg. A violent run-in with Cameron Chase, a nasty argument with cousin Bette, and relationship drama with Maggie Sawyer filled this beautifully pencilled issue. Dave Stewart's colors continue to get better and better, and we even get to enjoy two extra pages of story. "Red Knight" was an elegant addition to Batwoman's world. Kate Kane, just like Batman, chooses the worst possible way to protect those dear to her, and although her intentions are the best, she goes the wrong way about it, making her look like a big beyotch. I loved that. Next: Flamebird! And I am worried!
