    This is a tense, gripping first issue that raises a lot of questions, and I can't wait to see how it plays out. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Trevor Richardson Mar 21, 2018

    An introspective, spooky script and equally unnerving visuals make this issue a solid start to the new arc and a great continuation of Kate Kane's mission against the Many Arms of Death. Read Full Review

    Cliffhangers are a comic-book's bread and butter, and this one has a classic. This issue delivers thrills, chills, character, great art and leaves the reader wanting more" I wish this title came out every two weeks. Read Full Review

    Batwoman is the kind of story that comes with a complexity that's mostly fantastic, but also a tad frustrating. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 23, 2018

    Batwoman #13 is a compelling noir/horror hybrid that can grab you and keep you engaged through to the back cover. Admittedly, the slow burn leaves the plot moving a little slowly, but the trip through the Kane house and the ending reveals make it worthwhile. Plus, the art looks great. Marguerite Bennet and company put together a solid book here. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Mar 22, 2018

    All the way back as far as Rucka's run on the character, horror tropes have been a part of Batwoman and Blanco has fun delivering them throughout the first half of the book. To mention anything from the second half would be to give away spoilers. I noted last month that issue #12 was very predictable; this certainly isn't the case for issue #13! If you like Batwoman and have been looking for a place to jump back into the action, this is the issue for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Mar 21, 2018

    The artwork for this series shines, as per usual. The use of imagery to indicate Kate's mental health and internal thoughts is brilliant; such as the dead portraits in her abandoned family home. I would love to see more of this, if I'm being honest. Safiyah looked absolutely stunning, as did their small fight. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Mar 21, 2018

    This issue of Batwoman is elevated by some great art and inner dialogue. The rest of the issue is just kind of bland. The twist is pretty predicable once you're halfway through the issue and a lot of the issue feels like it dragged us along on a ride that no one wanted. However, I can say that this issue is at least competent when it comes to storytelling which is something I couldn't say about most of the issues in this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Mar 21, 2018

    Honestly, though, Ive grown bored with this book. I should probably go back and re-read all the issues together to be sure, but it seems to wander a great deal. There have been moments that have been interesting - such as the visit to Scarecrow's underground lab - but they seem too drawn out to be completely satisfying. Read Full Review

    It is good to see the plot take form and advance (although at snails place). I really want more character growth from Kate. The art and Julia's reappearance are the best parts of this issue. Read Full Review
