An excellent and heartwarming finale. Kate has weathered the experiences of her mission and come out stronger for it. There are plenty of teases of future stories at the end that I hope we get to see soon.

Batwoman #18

It's the series finale, and there's a lot of drama to resolve for Kate Kane, both in and out of costume. As Batwoman, she teams with Renee Montoya to thwart Clock King's latest time-bending enterprise: selling a drug that allows criminals to know if their crime will be successful-before it's committed. But Batwoman's facing a quandary to boot: Take...

Kate Kane's latest assignment is leaving her cold-it's a cold case that forces her to team up with GCPD Detective Renee Montoya, and which, as usual, has Gotham City running out of time. Is this the start of a beautiful crime-fighting partnership? No spoilers, but expect sparks and punches to fly!

Wow. This was probably the best issue of the run so far. A lot of character beats for Kate and even Colony Prime, and their bickering was great. Trippy, creepy visuals, appropriate for Scarecrow. I can't say much more without getting spoilery, but this was highly enjoyable, and any flaws were minor.

I loved how this issue messed with the reader's perception a bit. After Kate gets shot down early on, it's not easy to tell what's real and what isn't. Confusing? Sure. But that reflects the same disorientation Kate is going through, even before getting fear-toxin'd, so it works. And while understated, it was interesting to see her thought process in the middle of an emergency.

Very entertaining stuff. An intriguing flashback with Bruce and Zatanna, a great brawl between Batwoman and Orphan VS a possessed Azrael, Jean-Paul having a battle of wills inside his own mind against Ascalon, and an ending we all saw coming based on the next issue's cover, but one that gives a plausible way for Jean-Paul to rid himself of the System for good.

Beautiful art. Some small but needed fleshing out of both Safiyah and the island; not a huge amount in either case, but enough. Safiyah and Tahani's relationship also had a bit more development that gave Tahani a more active role in their breakup, which was interesting to see after the previous issue seemed to indicate she wasn't at any fault.

This series continues at a breakneck pace! It almost moves so fast as to be a detriment, but nothing is badly-explained or confusing. There's just very little breathing room. I'd much rather any story be too fast than too slow, so I don't mind this.

I wish Christine had been in a few earlier issues, but I liked how she was able to help Cass realize that she's not broken just because she doesn't want to live up to the deadly, evil legacy of her parents.
