    This installment may mostly be a flashback, but it's just as impactful as any BATWOMAN issue -- maybe more so. Via symbols and reveals, it will elevate back-issues and inform the rest of the series to come. Mysteries are solved and hearts are broken in this visually enticing piece. It also has a pretty poignant message to send about love and relationships. Read Full Review

With her mission to take down The Many Arms Of Death reaching an empasse, Kate now has to return to Europe, her sister, and on a head-on collision with her for former lover, turned bitter enemy.

    True fans of the character, and those who have been paying good attention to the series up to this point, will be rewarded. Others may have a difficult time, but should enjoy the character work nonetheless. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Feb 21, 2018

    While we are still suffering through the Many Arms of Death storyline, this issue actually gives us a small amount of pay off with some of the story threads that have been given to us so far. Because of that, the issue is actually pretty enjoyable. It's still suffers from some aspects that continue to carry over in this issue but for the most part this issue is a nice read which is a welcome diversion for this series so far Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Feb 21, 2018

    A stylish interlude that satisfyingly responds to our questions (albeit with elementary answers) and builds anticipation for Kate's showdown with Safiyah. If you're reading Batwoman's Rebirth adventures, even sporadically, you probably need to read this issue to fully appreciate Marguerite Bennett's sprawling narrative. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Feb 21, 2018

    I don't know if there is an agenda here - and I don't mind if there is - butI do wish Batwoman could avoid falling into narrative traps, and simply tell a good story. Preferably one that doesn't wander aimlessly for a year. Perhaps it just needs a more experienced writer. Read Full Review
