Not very impressed. I'm not familiar with this character, except for meeting her in a brief cameo in one of the "Court of Owls or actually, I think "Death of Family" story arc books. I'm pretty big into the whole Batfamily so needed to check this out. I had a hard time forming an opinion of Kate Kane or any other characters. There was little development and not much background information though some hints are dropped and I'm presuming we'll learn more about her past as her series continues. Overall, just not a very compelling or stimulating story, no real villains or good battle scenes. I like Batwoman's physical appearance; her costume is cool and love! the hair. A similar colour to mine it gives me some hairstyling ideas. Otherwise, I wasn't impressed with the art. I don't plan on reading any more in the series unless they tie-in with other story arcs, at this point. ( )

The artwork was the main saving point of the this graphic novel series. It lacked character depth and the dialogue seemed forced. ( )

So here I am, jumping into another New 52 title. I was mostly interested in Batwoman/Kate Kane because I know she's a lesbian, but I knew very little else about her, so it was a bit tough to just jump right in here, even though the New 52 is supposed to be a reboot.

I enjoyed it, though; I like that in contrast to what I normally think of when I think of the Batfamily, without supernatural elements, here we've got Kate Kane basically going through an episode of Supernatural. It's interesting reading that at the same time as I'm getting into Batgirl -- and I like that there's plenty of stuff around in Kate's normal life, too. More than Batgirl's, maybe; I got more of a sense of the wider world surrounding Kate, anyway.

The art looks really cool; I love the red/black look Kate's got going on. ( )
