    Batwoman #29 doesn't move the story forward much, but the Marc Andreyko is really breathing life into his characters.  This issue finally makes me like the Wolf Spider as a character and Maggie and Kate are great as usual.  Jason Masters and Jeremy Haun nail the art and the end sets up a hell of an action packed issue next month.  I cant wait.

    Batwoman has a tough job ahead of her as she fights her way through Arkham Asylum to get back on the Wolf Spider's trail, but I know that I'll be there next issue to cheer her on. Read Full Review

    This was a pretty straightforward issue, but doesn't suffer from a lack of content. As is the case with the rest of Andreyko's issues of Batwoman, the great characterization is what really sells the book. Kate's personal problems are portrayed convincingly, as is how projects them towards other characters, such as Maggie, who I kind of feel bad for, as she's just trying her best to help Kate, who doesn't really get it. So while the arc may be stretching out the thin mystery a bit too far, and there was some fill-in this month, Batwoman #29 still manages to be a very compelling read from a characterization standpoint.

    Time has given this creative team the opportunity to gel and Batwoman is better for it. Read Full Review

    Andreyko is really starting to find his place and his voice on Batwoman, and this issue is where it really starts to shine. It's unfortunate to see it brought down by sub-par artwork, but Batwoman #29 is still well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 22, 2014

    I'm liking the new focus on Kate Kane's personal life, and her relationship with Maggie Sawyer, that Andreyko is bringing to the table. But his plots don't seem to be as good as the last creative team. Wolf Spider still isn't very interesting. And am I the only one bothered that this nobody is so easily defeating Batwoman in hand-to-hand combat? Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Mar 19, 2014

    Once again, we're given a glimpse of the history behind the paintings targeted by the Wolf Spider, and these hints of some deeper meaning are less tantalizing than they were several issues ago. Now, they only serve to highlight the relative flatness of the book's present day plot. But the issue's low point can be found, not in the Wolf Spider, but in Kate Kane. This month, her voice seems to have gotten lost in the fray, and the character comes across as uncharacteristically petulant when situated within the greater context of writer Marc Andreyko's run this far.

    Over all, this was more of a character building issue, but it worked well. Read Full Review
