Batwoman 12 :: Bloodtides

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

Batwoman keeps her promise to soldier on and continues searching for the missing children from the barrio. In Bloodtides, her search takes her to a twisted house of mirrors, where she and werebeast ally Abbot find Bloody Mary, one of the creatures of myth. J.H. Williams III makes his triumphant return as artist to tell Mary's origin, show Kate winning a few and losing a few, and illustrate the initial stages of Flamebird's rise.

At the same time these stories are told, Wonder Woman fights a handful of Medusa's minions; the narrative is completely different in these sequences, using a poetic approach in the writing, and extremely intricate details in the art, her portion of the issue is almost a completely different book, but beautiful nonetheless. This first chapter of World's Finest has set the bar really high!
