Comic Book Review: Batwoman: Rebirth #1

I've always loved the Kate Kane version of Batwoman. This new relaunch is really no different for me. The one-shot prologue is a bit heavy in the personal drama department, but writers Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV's storytelling seem to point in the direction of more action in the title's future. Artist Steve Epping leaves us with a striking image on the final page that will leave you no doubts that plenty of adventure and excitement await us.

Monster Venom is the hottest new bioweapon on the market. Kate Kane and her alter ego are going to have to return to the place where they spent some of their darkest hours to break up the syndicate spreading it around the world in Batwoman: Rebirth #1.

Batwoman: Rebirth #1 is rated T for Teen. It contains violence, adult situations, and frightening and intense scenes. There's really no reason for it to be given that rating that I can think of, unless censors consider Kate Kane's relationships "too edgy" or "mature content."

Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV wrote Batwoman: Rebirth #1. Stephen Epping illustrates the issue. It was released on February 15th through DC Comics. The book is 32 pages long.

Batwoman: Rebirth #1 is available now in print and digital editions.
