    Batwoman #31 doesn't re-write the fight for Gotham, but it does offer a solid few reasons to get invested and buy this monthly franchise. Recommended. Read Full Review

    As Batwoman's civilian and superhero life intertwines with the Wolf Spider, the Wolf Spider could become a formidable opponent and key component in Batwoman's rogues gallery. For the next arc, though, this issue did more to build my interest in seeing Maggie's custody battle play out than in seeing Batwoman battle Nocturna. While Batwoman's relationship with Maggie is a core part of the story, Nocturna is just a "designated bad guy" at the moment. See you next issue, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel! Read Full Review

    Batwoman #31 ends Andreyko and Haun's Wolf Spider arc, but everything takes a backseat to Kate and Maggie's relationship.  The Wolf Spider was a nice diversion and I hope to see him somewhere down the line, but I'm more looking forward to the custody battle looming on the horizon.

    Batwoman #31 has its share of Wolf Spider " Batwoman fights that are entertaining but the problem lies in Wolf Spider himself. It's become painfully obvious who he is and it takes away from the fun of solving it ourselves. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this arc, and while it was a pretty big departure from what Batwoman did before, I think just a nice and easy, consistent story is what this title needed following the controversy. What this arc (and issue) consistently excelled at was the "off-duty" scenes following Kate and all the problems in her personal life, followed up with how she deals with them. There was a great balance between Kate and Batwoman, which I really appreciated. Unfortunately, the Batwoman aspect of this story really failed to deliver any sort of satisfying conclusion and just leaves everything at a very underwhelming point. There were some highs and lows, but overall, I thought this issue was pretty okay. Read Full Review

    Artist Jeremy Haun is really coming into his own on Batwoman. It seems that the longer he draws it, the stronger his work is getting. And we're finally seeing him really nail facial expressions and renderings, an aspect of his art that has been plagued by inconsistencies in the past. Read Full Review

    "Batwoman" #31 makes me feel like this comic is on the right track. Andreyko and Haun are having fun with the book, and so far, so am I. The art deco look from before is certainly missed, but this is a nice replacement. I'm sticking around, and so should you. Read Full Review
