Batwoman 10 :: To Drown the World V

Writers: J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman
Artist: Trevor McCarthy

Snap! The penultimate chapter of "To Drown the World" comes loaded with surprising moments and unexpected twists. Kate is not the only one in her relationship with a secret life, Bette is the silent confessor to Jacob Kane's crude admissions, and Cameron Chase finally proves she is a human being; all great character building sequences with high emotional intensity.

Trevor McCarthy quickly warms up to the theme of the story to deliver pretty awesome artwork; Killer Croc's transformation was superbly illustrated. The page design for the Batwoman scenes is framed with ionic columns and classical details that symbolize one's assumptions of the story, only to have it all crumbling down in the last page as the true nature of the enemy is revealed in a crazy and grisly spin. Only one issue left before the end, and it looks like Falchion and his creatures of myth were just the beginning of Batwoman's problems.
