    Batwoman #27 is a good book that looks great.  It may be a bit confusing at points, but I can still recommend to Batwoman fans.  The ending changes everything for Kate and Maggie's relationship.  That and the many full spreads are worth the price of admission alone.  Read Full Review

    Marc Andreyko and Jeremy Haun continue to prove that Batwoman is in good hands. The new creative team has been a fresh breath of air for the title, setting up an interesting new direction that manages to stay respectful to the work of the creative team before them. While Batwoman #27 may read a bit thin, its a solid issue and guest artist Francis Manapul more than makes up for it with some truly breathtaking imagery Read Full Review

    We aren't given much to chew on with regards to advancing the plot, leaving us to wonder if this multi-issue arc is hefty enough to justify stretching it out this long. Read Full Review

    The artwork is beautiful. Jeremy Haun and Francis Manapul deliver a gorgeously executed book. There was one panel that confused me, where the guy who hired Wolf Spider does something to a painting. It looks as if he may have set it on fire, but I don't think that's right. I just didn't get it, but I'm sure it will be explained. Read Full Review

    What could have simply been a meltdown for this title has been smartly averted as Andreyko and company are now settling into their groove and setting up stories for the future. Andreyko brings intelligence to the story without sacrificing action and continues to give Kate Kane room to grow. Haun's art, coupled with a visual boost from Manapul, hits the right notes and merges nicely with Andreyko's story. J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman may have left the title, but "Batwoman" #27 proves to be enjoyable and worthwhile reading all the same. Read Full Review

    If this issue suffers from anything, it's a mix of pacing as well as a bit of a "been there, done that" sort of feel. There's nothing wrong with the story presented, it just goes by too quickly, and some of it feels like a rehash. The consequences of this issue are where the interesting bits will most likely lay. The personal drama that could spin out of Kate's fianc's child learning Batwoman's secrets could be pretty big, throwing quite a few more bumps on an already bumpy road. That's what I'm interested in seeing play out. Read Full Review

    I very much care about the drama that will come from Maggie's daughter finding Kate all bruised up in the bathroom. That's the kind of drama I want, and hopefully we'll get it next issue. For now, despite that trippy moment, the second proper issue of Andreyko's Batwoman is stronger than the first, and I have hope that this series might get really good. I even liked Haun's art better this issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 24, 2014

    Batwoman is starting to read like a book on its last legs. Marc Andreyko moves into familiar territory with a hallucination sequence that recounts Kate Kane's struggles with being gay in the military. While that could have the potential to be very powerful, the delivery method is awkward and haphazard. Read Full Review
