    This story tugs at the heartstrings, sets the reader on edge and has kept me riveted for over a year. Clayface was out of control, and Alice is out of her mind. Yes, she's deadly, but she has moments of lucidity. When the Beth Kane persona takes over, you clearly see fear, horror, shock and sorrow in her eyes. This is one of the most brilliant villains in all of comics, handled by some of the greatest talents. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 18, 2018

    Bennett's run has brought this title back to the roots established in the original Rucka and JH Williams run, with some brilliant new twists involving the island of Coryana. More than anything, this title's strength is in giving Kate her own unique world to inhabit " as a global crusader for the mission of the Bat whose personal demons haunt her as much as those of her villains.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 21, 2018

    Batwoman #14 is a highly compelling and brutal entry in the series. Bennett, Blanco, and Rauch construct a great story of stakes both personal and apocalyptic. This one earns a strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Trevor Richardson Apr 18, 2018

    Though there were some details in the dialogue and coloring I didn't love, I loved the theatricality of the issue and it does a great job of maintaining the fun, action-packed pace. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jonathan O'Neal Apr 19, 2018

    "Batwoman" #14 is a good-looking book with a super villain plot that is pure comic book ridiculousness, which is not to say that it's not enjoyable, especially if it helps jettison some of the ghosts that haunt our hero. Read Full Review

    Some really tense moments, but they can get overwhelmed by the wordy moments and dialogue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Apr 19, 2018

    While the reveal in this issue may be lackluster at best, Batwoman continues with it's currently uptrend. It's still not a great book but it's at least a book that has become engaging with the audience. Maybe once we finally get out of this story arc which has lasted over a year we will get some great content but as for the current state of this book, I still don't feel comfortable recommending it. While the book may be better now, we had to wade through a ton of crap to get here. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Apr 18, 2018

    I loved the artwork for this issue " especially Alice. I know she's already been designed and shown, but I still love her style. She even looked great in all red up on that giant projection. The cityscapes and panoramic were terribly dramatic in this issue, but it helped support the threat of what Tahani and Alice were trying to complete. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, Batwoman #14 is a solid entry to the series, but not nearly as strong as some of the issues that have come before. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Apr 19, 2018

    Though it's a slightly lacklustre issue, it's fun to see Alice again. The set-up isn't promising but maybe I should have more faith in Bennett; she's a talented writer and it's perfectly possible she'll land an excellent conclusion to the arc in issues #15 and 16. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Apr 25, 2018

    FernandoBlancos artwork serves the Bat-franchise well, and Im confident he would dowell on any of the Bat-books. Combined with the colors of John Rauch, mood andatmosphere become the order of the day. They are an effective team, in that thework of one compliments that of the other without overshadowing it.

    The Batman Universe - Tony Hammack Apr 19, 2018

    Alice's endgame is the only interesting thing in this issue. My patience with this book and Kate is diminishing quickly. I want to see the strong, heroic Kate from Detective Comics, not the unsure, self-loathing one in this book. Read Full Review
