Batwoman 8 :: To Drown The World III

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

Batwoman takes on Falchion's myth creatures as they threaten "To Drown the World" in a story written by Williams III and Haden Blackman. The pieces of this time-spanning adventure continue coalescing while questions are answered, and characters and their relationships are developed. Events from the massacre in issue #2 are elaborated on, Batwoman's dynamics with agent Chase get the spotlight, and Kate keeps digging herself in a hole from which she will not be able to get out of. After almost two years of much fanfare, Amy Reeder's short-lived run in the title comes to its end. Her style, although very different from Williams III's, had its own charm and fit perfectly fine with the theme and tempo of the arc. It is sad that creative differences did not allow the story to be delivered in its entirety with the consistency expected of such high-quality book.
