There’s been a lot of talk lately around the What’cha Reading bullpen about crossovers, event comics, what constitutes a good story. You know the same stuff everybody talks about… Right? Well this week I was reminded what a good story feels like.
Batwoman 21 is what I call a loose end story. After a big plot-line comes to an end you’re always left with a few unanswered questions, what happened to so and so and the like. After Batwoman and Wonder Woman defeated Medusa it left a lot of things in the air and Killer Croc was one of them.
Defeated as the Hydra and left for dead, Waylon (Killer Croc) Jones was found and nursed back by a mysterious cult. A cult with a purpose, to kill Batwoman!
Williams III and Blackman have done amazing things with Batwoman and this issue is no different. Take the usual great story telling and add in Francesco Francavilla’s creepy and engaging art and you have a sure-fire winner.
I highly recommend adding Batwoman to your pull list, I just hope the series lasts…
