I really like this character. I liked her in 52 and I loved her first solo run in, Greg Rucka's, DETECTIVE COMICS. Unfortunately, none of her self-titled series have managed to hold my interest beyond a few issues. Suffice to say, I was, eagerly, anticipating the REBIRTH era of BATWOMAN. James Tynion had proven that he had a good handle on the character in his DETECTIVE run and Steve Epting is more

Comic books don't get much better than this intro. Great story and awesome art. Spencer outdid himself here with everything. I wish Acuna did the whole thing. His style just fits beautifully.

Everything good about the limited series of the same name can be found in, the ongoing, MONSTERS UNLEASHED #1.

So far King's Batman has underwhelmed. This issue is the first one to live up to the hype. The plot is great, without a wasted moment. I won't ruin it. This is the sharpest King's writing has been. His obnoxious speech patterns are gone, replaced by sharp wording that crackles. More important, he's willing to leave space empty when words aren't necessary. A nearly perfect job. more

Great issue. People complain about how bad the New 52 TEEN TITANS was (and they are, absolutely, correct). The fact is, the poor quality of this book preceded the New52. TEEN TITANS had been floundering since Geoff Johns' run. So, I am appreciative that, with the exception of a couple of cringe-worthy moments, the REBIRTH era of the series has been terrific.
