    A strong issue due to its art and well plotted one-shot story. Read Full Review

    It was a great individual issue with a little nostalgia (Professor Pyg), and the opportunity to be apart of a Kate's journey from self-loathing failure to confidant hero. The first step in her journey is to confront the foundation of her downward spiral, Brussels. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Mazzacane Jan 22, 2018

    'Pygsty' is the right kind of filler issue. It doesn't break the mold but shows how that mold still has room for further exploration and can be applied to different formula. Read Full Review

    Batwoman #11 is a fill-in issue by Superwoman writer K. Perkins that pits Batwoman against my least-favorite Batman villain, but is somewhat saved by a few nice character beats that help to humanize Kate in one of her most brutal stories. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Lawrence Jan 19, 2018

    Batwoman #11saw our heroine fighting a worthy foe in the form of Professor Pyg, but lacked a compelling enough narrative to keep me engaged. Kate Perkins is a skilled writer. In one issue she nailed the layered characterisation of Batwoman. Scott Godlewski's accurate illustration of Batwoman made up for the less than stellar background and minor character artwork.

    I've always loved the design for Batwoman. The bright red hair against the dark outfit is just so iconic (and no, it doesn't really matter to me that the hair is actually a wig). The second page is likely my favorite for this issue; the bright blue shards of glass are oddly striking, especially when contrasted with her overall darker palette. Part of me almost wishes it was the cover (even though it wouldn't convey the enemy or threat at all). Read Full Review

    The artwork by Scott Godlewski is suitable for the subject at hand. Combined with John Rauchs colors, it tells the story effectively without distracting fromthe narrative. Its unfortunate Godlewski and Rauch didnt have a more ambitious story to illustrate. But perhaps it just sets the stage for some really great storytelling next issue. Read Full Review

    Batwoman #11 is a one-shot that solidifies the series' greater flaws. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Jan 17, 2018

    While it was a welcome departure from the Batwoman story we've been getting for the past year, this book falls a bit short and it's clear that the writer was only given a single issue and tried to crush a larger story into those pages. It's very straight forward and not in a good way. Many of the things that happen are questionable and border on deus ex machina—a tired and horrible storytelling element that writers only use when they've written themselves into a corner. It's better than it has been but not by much and we go back to the same old same old in the next issue. Read Full Review
