    This is a very good finale that does a lot and offers up a surprise, key introspective moment for Batwoman. This character has been made stronger from this arc and should have longtime fans cheering for more. Read Full Review

    Batwoman #10 offers readers with a deep character study of Batwoman and delivering an interesting fight scene. Although the conclusion wasn't as memorable as "The Many Arms of Death" story arc, I commend "Fear and Loathing" for still prioritising to flesh out the titular character. Read Full Review

    I dont have any speculation on this title; however, I do find it interesting that one of the 5 figures Multiverse Mattel figures will be releasing is a Rebirth version of Batwoman shipping by January! Read Full Review

    All told, Bennetts writing is of its usual high caliber and while this isnt an issue Id recommend to a new reader, its definitely an important episode in the unfolding story. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Dec 22, 2017

    The ultimate goal in this issue is not just to take down the Scarecrow, it's to see how this battle has affected Kate's mind. In a good scarecrow story, the protagonist leaves with a little bit of her (his) soul taken from them. Dr. Jonathan Crane is almost the Dr. Hannibal Lecter of the DC universe (without the cannibalism) His powers of illusion aren't just for trickery but for getting into the minds of his victims and Kate will realize that not everything was an illusion, a great issue and I enjoyed it a lot. ***1/2 (8.6 rating) Read Full Review

    Batwoman's investigation into the many arms of death may reveal some unpleasant truths. It seems nothing Batman himself couldnt have handled, which begs the question as to why a Batwoman is needed in the first place - something Ive been wonderingfor a while. Thankfully, the answer is much more than Because DC needs more diverse characters. So maybe there's hope for the book yet. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Dec 20, 2017

    Despite some good looking art, this issue continues down the same road that very few care about at this point and it does so in the most clunky and awkward way that it can. We're stuck on the same storyline that after 10 issues we finally have some real development in but I am trying to find fans that are invested in this book and they just aren't coming to me. This book needs a complete overhaul. Please save your money. There is no joy or excitement to be found in the pages of Batwoman. Read Full Review

    I take the end of this run. For recall I'm in this story thanks to Blanco arts. The story take a strange but interesting turn. Batwoman give Scarecrow a taste of his own medicine. I like the part where illusion & reality start to collide.
    But then inexplicably Kate as another vision of Safiyah. For this one we can make a assumption than this because Scarecrow drugs. She isn't clear yet. Then we have a part with the collective. I didn't like seen Batwoman this good close to them. At least that give her a good talk with Prime. But then another strange vision (unexplained this one). She decide to run after some illusion (Once more), memory & reality colliding. That's for me the weaker part of the story.

    Cover - I had the choice more

    This title gets a little worse each issue, in my opinion. The main character is not really likeable, and I don’t really care about her if she’s not with Batman. The loose ties to the Detective Comics storyline doesn’t help it out at all. Not sure I’m going to continue reading this one.

    Why does this series keep going back to a story that was such a bore?
