The New 52 Batwoman Vol. 1: Hydrology (DC)



How Everything Flows Together: It flows together like one would expect after 81 of these reviews

The Storyline: Kate Kane aka Batwoman has to find children that have mysteriously vanished while staying one step ahead of the police and balancing her budding relationship with GCPD detective Maggie Sawyer

Artistry: Dark & a bit gritty which fits in with the ghost story aspect of the story. I really like it.

Why I Liked/Didn't Like It: I liked it. Aside from the one other Batwoman story I've read I've never read a graphic novel with a gay superhero male or female.

Final Thoughts: If you've never read Batwoman before start with Elegy and then pick this one up. If you're a fan of the Bat family you'll be glad you did.

My Rating : * * * * * out of 5

The New 52 Batwoman Vol. 2: To Drown The World (DC)



How Everything Flows Together: It flows together like one would expect after doing all of these reviews

The Storyline: Batwoman has now been blackmailed to work for the Department of Extranormal Operations and is forced to do some things she doesn't want to do in her hunt for the missing children.

Artistry: Dark & a bit gritty which fits in with the ghost story aspect of the story. I really like it.

Why I Liked/Didn't Like It: Over all I liked it. The story continues seamlessly from Vol. 1 and still kept me rivited. The artwork is some of the best I've seen. The thing docked it half a star was the fact they told the same story from 5 different views avnd kept jumping bsck and forth between thr past & the present.

Final Thoughts: Now I need to go find the rest of the volumes so I can finish the damn story.

My Rating : * * * * 1/2 out of 5

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1 (DC)
(recommended by Lee)



How Everything Flows Together: I'm running out of ways to say the flow was good

The Storyline: Campion Bond (grandfather of 007 James Bond) has Wilhelmina Murray gather together some rather extraordinary gentlemen. After she does that and the league is set up they're tasked with retrieving a stolen piece of gravity defying cavorite for Bond's employer Mr. M. In doing so they must then prevent thd destruction of London's east end.

Artistry: I actually enjoyed it. They tried to make seem like it actually was from the late 19th century and the art makes that even more believable.

Why I Liked/Didn't Like It: Over all I loved it. Something about all of fiction living in the same world speaks to me. The art style worked more than I thought it would and the story is so much bettet than the film. The only thing I didn't care for was the fact they put Arabic, French and Chinese in there as well, none of which I speak. Luckily they only did it a little bit where it made sense to do it so I'm able to over look it for the most part.

Final Thoughts: I can already tell I'm going to up my rating of Black Dossier. Just reading the 1st one put some pieces of the puzzle into place.

My Rating : * * * * 1/4 out of 5
