    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray May 18, 2018

    One of the many questions raised by fans over the last year or so is, when exactly is this story set? Marguerite Bennett finally answers that question this issue. The genius part is, like with any great writer, the answer raises even more questions, leaving this reader, at least, hungry for more. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 18, 2018

    Batwoman #15 is another stellar entry into Marguerite Bennetts Kate Kane series. This book has yet to disappoint me, and Blanco and Rauch make it even better with awesome artwork. This book gets another recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    While Batwoman's character in Detective had some issues, I think this might be my favorite run on the character, even above the legendary Rucka and JH Williams runs. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Trevor Richardson May 16, 2018

    Though there were some lettering choices I found questionable and the script felt like it lacked major stakes, excellent artwork and distinct characterization make this issue another great entry in the series. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Mazzacane May 17, 2018

    While there are some moments of friction, Batwoman #15 is one of the more functionally artistic and successful books Marguerite Bennett, Fernando Blanco, John Rauch, and Deron Bennett, have done on this run. The big and bold imagery has clear energy and purpose as it articulates the actions and revelations Kate Kane goes through as she accepts responsibility for all her actions. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt May 16, 2018

    The artwork was pretty decent for this issue. Lots of double page spread with dramatic poses and images. I would have liked to see Alice drawn a little differently " I still maintain she looks too maniac to be stable enough to succeed in her goals, but that may just be a personal preference thing.

    First of all, let's get this out the way: Batwoman #15 is the most beautifully illustrated and lettered issue of the series, up there with some of the best looking comics DC has put out in the last couple of years. I was hoping the writing of the issue would match, and it does from time to time, but it's inconsistent. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Oliver Bourne May 17, 2018

    Overall, this was a decent issue as we get some resolution here with Kate and her strained relationships. The cliffhanger makes you wonder if Batwoman will have to answer for her sins to Batman. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff May 16, 2018

    Obviously, this is a spoiler-free section and I won't spoil the issue at all but I wanted to say that I could tell you exactly what happens in this issue in a seven-word sentence and I could save you all four dollars and you wouldn't be lost in the next issue. Very little happens but somehow we still have time to tell Kate and Beth's origin for the twelfth time in this series. This book had some nice momentum going into this issue and it spoiled nearly all of it. The ending has a nice eye catcher that will keep most readers interested in what comes next but the rest of this book was a waste of time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier May 25, 2018

    I have enjoyed Batwoman when she has been a supporting player in Detective Comics, but I feel giving herher own title is misplaced. Its as if DC believes Batman is so popular, thatif they place the word bat in front of anything, it will sell. In this case,I suspect they are mistaken. I believe Batwoman requires additional seasoningbefore being worthy of her own book. Read Full Review
