    Population Go - Sam Hawkins May 5, 2014

    Jeremy Haun returns to solely providing the pencils this issue, and things are better for it. With the artwork more consistent throughout this issue, Haun's artwork really gets a chance to shine with the story being packed with plenty of action. The opening fight in Arkham Asylum is wonderfully illustrated, with Haun's pencils both capturing the chaotic nature of the fight, whilst showing Batwoman to be effortlessly moving from opponent to opponent and subduing them. Add to that some nice facial expressions, such as Batwoman's smug smile in some panels, and this is one fine looking comic. Read Full Review

    Marc Andreyko and Jeremy Haun deliver on the fight scene promised last month, and it's clear that Andreyko is really starting to get a handle on Kate Kane's voice. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Apr 18, 2014

    Batwoman #30 is a good book but a chunk of the mystery is quickly resolved, so much so that I found myself underwhelmed. Still there's enough to earn a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 19, 2014

    Batwoman #30 continues the Wolf Spider/Paintings Mystery story, but only pushes it forward a bit. That's not a huge problem since the villain and story are rather generic in the first place. I'd rather see more of Kate and Maggie's relationship and we do get a bombshell this month that will setup a story line that will be controversial and awesome.  Give me that and finish up with the Wolf Spider and I'll be just fine.

    Outside of my narration gripes, I didn't find much wrong with this issue, and it certainly looked very nice. The one thing that stood out to me about this issue was that nothing much actually stood out, everything just felt a bit typical. Still not really sure what the paintings are supposed to lead too, the Arkham breakout wasn't all that interesting with D-list inmates, and so on. It was a fine issue, just not the best.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 19, 2014

    The more compelling personal life stuff is almost completely ignored in favor of the continued chase between Batwoman and Wolf Spider. I really hope this is all going somewhere. Read Full Review
