Batwoman 6 :: To Drown The World I

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

It was one of the most anticipated arrivals in comics' recent history, but she is finally here; Amy Reeder joins the creative team as Batwoman's enemies threaten "To Drown The World." With a style all her own, Reeder brings tons of energy and vigor to the art department, while keeping true to the fluid and versatile layouts that are so distinctive in this title. The art transition between Williams III and Reeder is indeed seamless despite their talents being so different. The writing is fantastic as well; telling the story from six points of view at different points in time, Williams III and Blackman create a strong sense of inevitability; as if the characters are spiraling down towards an unavoidable fate where they are bound to collide with each other. And this is only the first part of the arc! The Weeping Woman was just the tip of an amazingly well written and illustrated iceberg.
