Batwoman Vol.1 : The Many Arms of Death Reviews

  • Logan

    Bit of mediocre read. Story overall, while not terrible wasn't really too enjoyable or memorable. Artwork was fantastic though!

  • Kristy K

    I am fairly new to superhero comics and though I have a read a bit of Marvel, DC has been limited to mainly Batgirl and Nightwing. I enjoyed those and was hoping Batwoman would fall along the same lines. However, I felt the story line was forced and didn't care about what was happening. The story was not quite an origin story, not quite fighting the villain plot.

    I've read one other DC rebirth comic and didn't like it, so I think this DC universe just isn't for me.

    kinda sad that this was my first encounter with batwoman... there's not a thing I liked about this, except for the art of stephanie hans. the story is pretty boring and full of self entertaining monologues. didn't quite feel like this was a batwoman story, almost any characters could kinda fit into this plot. and the overall art wasn't necessarily bad, it just wasn't my thing.

    disappointed but don't plan on giving up on this character just yet

  • Sad Sunday, Cursed by DNF

    Wow. The artwork was pretty nice. As for the storyline - not so much. I would have preferred more linear storyline, since loads of jumping and inconsistency happen, and sometime it's hard to tell who is who and what is happening. I am fairly new to comics but I know who the Batwoman is, and it was hard to understand what book was about - her youth, her adventures, her nemesis, her becoming Batwoman or else. Beware, loads of kissing involved!

    I feel like whoever wrote the dialogue feels like there is more characterization than there actually is. What bothers me the most about the title is the facade of intended deeply rooted character analysis. It just tastes like a really boring plot-heavy exposition. I feel duped.

    Art is cool though. I liked the juxtaposition of written colors and drawn colors. Or I guess just “red” since Kate is the “red.” Maybe I didn’t like the art that much either. I don’t know. It was better than the overbearin

    Pretty bad.

    World: The art is okay, it's a bit bland and the sense of motion and contrast in shadows is not really there, rather forgettable. The world building, the first 3 pages of Rebirth was good, the rest was rather ho hum I don't care. I want to love Kate and I do, Williams III built an amazing world for Kate to play in and I am comparing this world to that and this world, is bland, poorly constructed and the motivations are wonky and just unappealing. I don't care about the island I don't

    Pretty bad.

I don't care about the island I don't care about the Many Arms cause they were not developed well. Poor world building.

    Story: Bland story that is bloated with dialogue that has no depth or structure. The story is choppy and barely intelligible with poor character introduction and usage. This is suppose to be a reboot but not reboot, but at the end it was supposed to be a jumping on point for new readers. I've read the previous runs and I can barely understand what this book is trying to do for Kate. The island was boring the characters were boring and we don't care. I want to care about the relationship cause we are suppose to care according to the writer but I don't due to poor writing. The Drake stuff, if this is where Detective Comics is gonna go...no.

    Characters: Kate is barely developed. There is a lot of dialogue but Kate is barely developed as are all the characters. Knife is dull as are the twins. We don't even get a reason why they are doing what they are doing. That's stupid. Then there's the romance which is fractured. Sure the creative team wanted to play the siren the jealousy and the spoiling a good thing card but jeez the writing was poor.

    This book is bad, it's almost Blue Beetle bad.

    Onward to the next book!

    Batwoman Vol.1: The Many Arms of Death is a dark and gritty but beautifully drawn graphic novel. Kate Kane is the female equivalent of Batman, a womanizing, rich, tortured soul fighting crime with her own Pennyworth watching her back. With a childhood shaped by violence, she turned to her own vices before she shaped into the crime fighter she is. A crime fighter not afraid to work with criminals to take care of business. Story lines that include a villianess from Kate's past, and an evil new Bat

    Batwoman Vol.1: The Many Arms of Death is a dark and gritty but beautifully drawn graphic novel.

With a childhood shaped by violence, she turned to her own vices before she shaped into the crime fighter she is. A crime fighter not afraid to work with criminals to take care of business. Story lines that include a villianess from Kate's past, and an evil new Batman, keep the reader's attention as the pages fly by. Beautifully drawn with a lot reds and blacks that convey the mood perfectly for an interestingly original story. My voluntary and unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

    I love Kate so much!!! My only problem with the story is how non-linear it is? I wanted a little bit more consistency but other than that I'm very curious where the story will go.
