Batwoman continues in this volume to round up members of The Many Arms of Death. Her target in this book is primarily The Needle, also known as Dr. Jonathan Crane, or the Scarecrow. His fear toxin sets in as she and Colony Prime battle their fears and try to escape. The toxins create a swirl of hallucinations, including a needle-fingered Scarecrow, and visions of her beloved Safiyah. The final issue is a one-off story where Batwoman has to rescue Julia Pennyworth from Professor Pyg.
I liked this book a lot better than volume 1. The Wonderland storyline has a solid plot that feels pretty straight-forward aside from the nightmarish hallucinations. I laughed out loud at a panel in which Batwoman concedes that she and Colony Prime worked fine together “despite fighting like two wet cats in a sack,” and an unnamed medic wonders, “Why would you put two wet cats in a sack?” Also, there’s this great sequence where her father is lecturing her and in each panel, she is younger and younger until she’s a little girl, because it’s hard not to feel small when your father is scolding you.
Anyone who read Volume 1 will want to pick this up and continue the story. I’ve a feeling the next volume will reveal more about Safiyah’s role in The Many Arms of Death, so keep an eye out for that one. ( )

"Return to the brief flash of the future seen in BATWOMAN: REBIRTH and meet Commander Kane--a battle-hardened version of Batwoman! Hurting from battles unknown, she's taken control of the deadly Colony and declared war on Gotham City! What could possibly cause Kate Kane to bring the battlefront to her home? With writing from Marguerite Bennett (DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS) and James Tynion IV (DETECTIVE COMICS), as well as spectacular art from Steve Epting (CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER) and Ben Oliver (THE MULTIVERSITY), this new series spins directly out of the smash-hit DETECTIVE COMICS series!"--… (more)
