Library Journal
A New York Times best seller, Williams in this latest volume expands on the supernatural in Gotham. Medusa, a group consisting of mythological monsters and maybe a Batman villain or two, is snatching the city’s children, and Batwoman will do anything she can to get them back. However, this is not the only story being told. Katy Kane, when she is not Batwoman, is dating Maggie Sawyer, the lead detective searching for the kidnapped children, and hates Batwoman. Katy’s father stands by the bedside of her cousin as she fights for her life. All of these story lines go back and forth in time, keeping the reader off balance.

Verdict Williams continues his stellar work with his lead female superhero. While the chronology of the stories gets confusing, it allows for multiple views of the overarching plotline. The artwork, however, remains confusing throughout, with poor panel layout. Regardless, this graphic novel is great for fans of the Bat Family, stories of the supernatural, and gothic horror cases.—Ryan Claringbole, Chesapeake P.L., VA

    Decent but lacking!

    This was the first Batwoman collection I haven’t loved and it boils down to J.H. Williams not doing the artwork. While Amy Reeder and Trevor McCarthy do a fine job it pales in comparison to Williams’ work. I really did like the use of abstract panel layouts which Williams is known for but the pencils themselves were lacking. This story was also the first I really noticed the absence of Batwoman’s creator Greg Rucka. While Williams and Haden do a decent job the dialogue seems less fresh and the plot is pretty convoluted. Overall, the story and art are okay but not awe-inspiring as the book has been in the past.
