Batwoman 17 :: World's Finest VI

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

She swore she would bring them home... that she would soldier on, and the time has come at last for Batwoman to honor that promise in the final chapter of "World's Finest." The past year and a half worth of stories, sorrows, and losses, comes down to a colossal conclusion where there is nothing but the good guys -girls actually- finally reaping the much deserved reward of their sacrifice and brave acts of heroism.

Batwoman and Wonder Woman cementing their camaraderie, Bette rising above her fears, Chase getting schooled on heroics, and the history-making development for Maggie Sawyer, make of this issue the best one in the series to date. J.H. Williams III and Dave Stewart kill it with their art; every single panel teems with details and color. Staying in the fringes of the bat-verse has paid off for this title, because it's been able to grow and evolve without depending at every turn on whatever is happening to Batman and company. Then there is that last couple of pages... holy mother of crap!
