Some thoughts about Batwoman #3
After returning to one of her former lover's home, Kate will be forced to face an old enemy who is ready to destroy everything around her.
Yeaaaaah, I'm not feeling this one yet.
Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV bring a new chapter where they continue to explore the past of this particular setting and its connection to Kate but is just so BORING that I can't be invested in it. The villain is simply not interesting enough to waste so much time on her nor her background and the same can be said about the whole place which makes the entire plot pointless.
Hell, not even Kate's background is explored in an interesting way since her own past is barely touched (Seriously, based on my previous complaints, I never thought I would be disappointed for the lack of flashbacks to Kate's past) and so her relationship with this environment is not emphasized adequately.
Steve Epting's artwork is solid with expressive characters, clear storytelling and a dark tone.
Other than that, this is not working. Don't know if it will.
