"Fear and Loathing" part two! Stranded together in the Sahara, Batwoman could only count on her mutual-survival pact with her father to hold for so long...so it's not exactly a surprise when he turns on her! But it IS a surprise just what villain from Batwoman's past has been keeping an eye on them both: Prime!

    The Rebirth run of Batwoman is not to be missed and ends with fans waiting for the next installment. Read Full Review

    All in all, I really enjoyed this comic, I loved the darkness of the artwork that greatly complemented the story line. It makes a very interesting and enjoyable dynamic that I feel pulls the reader in that much more. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 31, 2017

    Thankfully, Bennett is more ambitious than that. This issue of Batwoman departs from some of the character development weve seenrecently, in favor of more action and ingenuity. Its refreshing, if the creative team can maintain the momentum of Batwoman kicking ass. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Lawrence Oct 21, 2017

    Although I still wish to know more about Scarecrow's motivations, I really enjoyed issue #8. Wonderful yet eery artwork, a formidable foe and Batwoman's internal struggle with her mind made for a thrilling story and I can't wait to know what happens in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Oct 18, 2017

    Batwoman actually manages to do something that I thought impossible for this book—be entertaining. Whether this rise in quality is due to the incorporation of Scarecrow into this story or a long fight sequence that removes any need for dialogue, one thing is for certain, I enjoyed this issue and I'm almost looking forward to the next one. Granted, I can't suggest anyone hop on this book yet. It needs more than one successful issue to do that but this could be the start of something good. Read Full Review

    Well-drawn, but perhaps a bit by-the-numbers in narrative execution. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Oct 19, 2017

    It is interesting that the Colony and Batwoman are both hunting the Many Arms of Death, it makes it somewhat plausible that she will head up the organization in the future. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Oct 18, 2017

    I feel like this story is spinning its wheels a bit as it attempts to get traction between Kate's intimate personal drama back on Coryana and the overarching vast conspiracy of the Many Hands of Death. And rather than building on the connections between these two things and advancing the story, this continues to feel like a side-mission or detour. Perhaps we'll get more meat with our potatoes in the next issue now that Batwoman has a (sort of) new ally in Colony Prime. Read Full Review

    Second part of Blanco run. The story use the Colony Prime & become more clear about the mission. That show some past of Batwoman but deviated by the drogs. That show also a fight with a giant dog that I didn't care because it's not real & she didn't fight in the reality. It's more a dream.

    Cover : I didn't find the variant, and this cover was a little lying about what is under the book. 1/2
    Story : I find it a little disappointing. Too slow like a transition issue. The part with the lightning is very nice tho ! 2/3
    Arts : Still pretty nice & effective, but sometime a little to frozen on the character body. The part about the trip is wonderfull. 2/3
    Feeling : I care even less about Colony Prime. In fact if someone can kill him ^^ 1/2
