    This is a great thriller with well-done character development and a plot that engages. The artwork is beautiful and I can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Usually the third installment in a story arc is filled with exposition and erroneous background info, that is not the case here and I'm grateful to the creative team for going for homeruns with every issue that I've read so far. Overall, this issue is not only on par with the previous ones but it builds on the momentum created in the previous issues but, connects them adding layers to the story and allowing for some top notch entertaining reading. Bennett and Tynion raised the stakes and, gave us full fire awesomeness that has me fully primed to check out the next issue because, I need to know what happens next. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Lawrence May 20, 2017

    ‘The Many Arms of Death' is turning out to be an exciting story arc and is a perfect way to kick off Batwoman's solo Rebirthseries. Issue #3 delivers everything I was hoping for: balanced writing, amazing artwork, excellent pacing and a great title character. Read Full Review

    These issues have gotten better with each installment. I've learned a lot of things about Batwoman and her relationships. As always, the art and writing was phenomenal. We can give a big thank you to Steve Epting, Jeromy Cox,James Tynion IV and Marguerite Bennett. I'm more than excited for the next issue. If you haven't already, make sure to check out the first two installments of the Batwoman Rebirth Comics. Read Full Review

    Once gain,Batwomandelivers on a story that is deeply wrapped in mystery, romance, and adventure. SteveEpting'sart is quite possibly one of the most beautiful out of all the DC books right now.Marguerite Bennett & JamesTynionIV are a dream team, having been nominated for andhaving won (respectively) the GLAAD Media Award, which is an accolade given by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community to recognize and honor various branches of the media for their outstanding representation of LGBT characters and issues that affect their lives.Batwomangoes way beyondthe topic ofher sexuality, and this book givesKatethe chance to shine, weaving all the complicated issues of her past together to give us the heroine we all deserve.

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo May 17, 2017

    Bennett and Tynion still play it safe in this issue as Kate's investigation of the mysterious island and its inscrutable inhabitants inches forward. We get the promise of some major threats on the horizon, but for now Kate still feels like she's reacting rather than acting. The next issue might change that, though, and in the meantime, Epting's art makes this well worth the price of admission; it is, truly, the heart of this comic at the moment. Read Full Review

    One issue of this might have been effective, as evidenced by the excellent #1, but "Batwoman" needs to step it up. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - husseinwasiti May 17, 2017

    The Monster Men story seems to be on hold, as Batwoman has her sights on liberating Coryana, resulting in a pretty typical, white saviour plot. With two issues left in this opening arc, I can't see how this storyline will conclude in a clean, satisfying manner. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 20, 2017

    The creative team on the new Batwoman has yet to sell me on their storyline, and the longer they delay the juicy mysteries, the less interested I'm going to be in their new characters and villains. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff May 17, 2017

    More of the same from this issue of Batwoman. We are learningabout this situation at a snail's pace and I still can't bring myself to careat all. We get a couple more fights that are indistinguishable from the othersso far in the series and the art is at least pretty good this issue. However,overall the book is still a bore and nothing really seems to be changing and Icouldn't care less. Read Full Review
