Review: Batwoman #2

Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV add another feather to their cap as they give us another well thought out, perfectly executed issue of Batwoman. Their sophomore turn at the superheroine’s current story arc is nothing short of brilliant. They weave together backstory and present conflicts in a way that doesn’t seem like it’s spoonfeeding us plot points. The duo go out of their way to give us a complete story that not only builds empathy for Batwoman but, makes us crave more.

In this issue, we find our title hero back in a place that she’s abandoned and the people she left there. We see frenemies, enemies and old loves all come into play and no character or place is frivolous. Bennett and Tynion cut all the fat from the story to give us nothing short of a gripping tale, with fully realized characters and interesting entry points into the world of the island and its inhabitants.

Steve Epting and Jeromy Cox give us great panels with perfectly muted colors that showcase the story being told. While the style of art is consistent throughout the comic, they change up on the intensity of the colors to show the difference between current scenes and flashbacks. The great art style, smart color choices and sleek lines make this issue beautiful to look at and it complements the story perfectly.

This second undertaking of an underutilized character in the DC universe is perfect. It has a real chance of bringing her and her story into the light and, I’m always here for complex, solo female (anti)heroes. The writing makes her interesting and adds a layer of dimension to her that I’m happy to see. The art team does ethnicity well in its drawing and color choices making it so that it doesn’t feel like we are just looking at a homogeneous group in different shades and,, they do so without making other ethnicities look like caricatures. Overall, I can’t wait to see what this team does with this character and arc because, if this issue is any indication there’s so much talent happening that it can only keep going up from here.
