    Batwoman #24 was everything I was looking forward to and more. It was a non-stop action filled thrill building up to what will surely be one hell of a climax. W. Haden Blackman and J.H. Williams III have truly given us something great in their run on Batwoman. Read Full Review

    The imagery is not only enticing, but is also drawn differently than other books featuring the other Bat characters because it truly shows Gotham from a similar, but different, perspective of Kane. The bottom line is that you need to buy this issue, and the next one as well, if you want to know how the main event turns out. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Oct 16, 2013

    It's awful to see this run end, but as far as unintentional final pages go, Williams and Blackman could do much worse. The story ends with Batman saying, "Kate" stop," and Kate replying, "No," while grabbing Batman's throat. Defiant. Determined. Uncompromising. A perfect ending to an equally defiant, determined and uncompromising run. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Oct 21, 2013

    This is a real bittersweet issue. As a single issue of Batwoman, this is another strong issue, which neatly manages the two ongoing storylines, whilst bringing the start of the epic brawl between Batwoman and Batman which we all wanted to see. Knowing that this is the final issue of Williams and Blackman however, and knowing that this story has been cut off almost mid-scene is unforgiveable on DC's part however, meaning that such a great creative run comes to such a disappointing end, all things considered.

    Its not the best issue to go out on, being that it isnt the end of the arc, but that can hardly be blamed on the creators since their run was supposed to last two MORE issues, but as exits go, this one definitely leaves its mark. I dont know what the new creative team has planned, but its got a massive legacy to live up to as this issue continues the high quality storytelling and gorgeous art that made the previous issues such stand-outs. Even though it isnt fully resolved, finally seeing Batwoman and Batman throw down is an absolute treat and must be seen to be believed, and while I wasnt a huge fan of the B-story, its still well executed enough that it doesnt even come close to ruining the issue. The payoffs in this issue were well worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Although I won't spoil the ending, I will say it ends rather abruptly leaving readers in something of a lurch. And at only twenty-one pages, it is clear the missing page would have been better used preparing the reader for what is to come in Issue #25 as opposed to being wasted on a "Channel 52" recap that most readers will inevitably skip. It is all the more disappointing as this abrupt ending also serves as an sad parallel to the abrupt ending of this creative team's tenure on this title as both writers step down, and the artistic team will be replaced as well. If you've been following the series up to this point, I'd recommend picking up Batwoman #24. It has been a fun ride. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Oct 16, 2013

    Batwoman #24 is a wonderful issue, but it leave such a sour taste in your mouth given that this is how it ends for this writing team. It's so great, but yet, this is it. The story is over and it ends on such a bad cliffhanger. Get this issue if you want to wrap up this team run on the comic, but prepare to be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 19, 2013

    And so we have arrived at the final issue for Williams and Blackman, their Batwoman opus coming to an inglorious ending. The series hasn't always been perfect, but it's been one of the best, strongest outings in DC's New 52. And this story arc promised to be one of the best throughout the entire company, with Batwoman finally, at long last, going toe-to-toe with Batman himself. I was excited, and the issue delivers, but upon reaching the end of this issue, all I could do was groan in disappointment. Read Full Review

    Given the recent events surrounding this title, I almost feel bad for rating it, but it doesn't change the fact that I took issue with it. While the story and art are very enjoyable, there's just no getting by how disconnected this book feels, in all the wrong ways. It's one thing for a title to be on its own and do its own thing, but when it comes back to the family, and incorporates elements incorrectly, it's hard to ignore. Maybe I'm being to harsh, maybe you might say "well it could take place earlier" which maybe it could, but the title goes out of its way to pigeonhole itself by making direct reference to when it takes place (Bane mentioning Robin's death). I just think this is an unfortunate issue, it has it's moments and quality elements, but given its inconstancy, and given that we won't get the ending originally planned, like I said, it just feels unfortunate.

    Well, I'm sad to see the founding writers of this series depart. they brought an immeasurable amount of love and concern to this series. While this issue was sound, they've done better work and the normally bang-up art was a tad rough and inconsistent. It was still above average, but the book has been better. Read Full Review
