Batwoman #24 - This Blood is Thick: Plots



The battle between Batwoman and Batman begins here—it’s all been leading to this!

Preview



Batwoman vs. Batman


This is the last issue of Williams, Blackman and McCarthy on Batwoman. It's the end of an era and a sad day if you have enjoyed the series thus far. Thankfully, they finished well. It's not everything I might wish, but it's still a solid tale.

The amount of forethought is what I appreciate about this particular issue. I love it when a plan comes together, and we get to see the intricate layers that the Kane Clan has devised to take down the Batman. We also get to see Bruce and his strategic mind take down Bane which is good in the sense that it reminds us that we are seeing a showdown between two great competitors but disappointing in that it shows Bane too easily defeated for a villain that is supposed to be one of Batman's ultimate nemeses.

The art is odd perhaps due to having three different finishers on the issue. It leaves things looking noticeably inconsistent.

Regardless of these and a few other little flaws, Batwoman #24 still does a great job of exposing the enormity of this battle between Batwoman and Batman and presenting us ringside seats to the opening flurry of blows. It might not be where the creators wanted to leave the series, but it's not a bad note on which to exit.
