I really wanted to start this review out with writing that I enjoyed reading this book, but unfortunately, I cannot. While reading this issue didn’t send up any red flags, the series just isn’t working for me. But since we’re only three issues in (if you count the #0 issue) I’m going to give Batwoman a few more issues before I give up reading it.
“’The Many Arms Of Death’ part two! The criminal haven of Coryana has changed completely in the years since Batwoman left! The biggest change of all? Her closest friends are now her enemies — or they’re corpses! It’s time for Kate Kane to cut to the heart of what’s happening here, and find out who brought the deadly bioweapon Monster Venom into Coryana…but she might get her own heart cut out in the process, by the unbeatable assassin known as the Knife!”
Batwoman #2 lacked the solid action that a book like this needs to be considered entertaining. I realize that the plot is thickening, but frankly, I don’t feel as though there is anything at stake, and with this being the case, I really don’t care what happens next.
I said before that there were no red flags—nothing jumped out and screamed that what I was reading was a bad comic, but then again, nothing really impressed me either. This one is just alright, so if you’re vested in the series, pick it up. If you’re just looking for something new and exciting to read…check out Super Sons.
