Batwoman keeps her promise to soldier on and continues searching for
the missing children from the barrio. In Bloodtides, her search
takes her to a twisted house of mirrors, where she and werebeast
ally Abbot find Bloody Mary, one of the creatures of myth. J.H.
Williams III makes his triumphant return as artist to tell Mary's
origin, show Kate winning a few and losing a few, and illustrate the
initial stages of Flamebird's rise.
At the same time these stories are told, Wonder Woman fights a
handful of Medusa's minions; the narrative is completely different
in these sequences, using a poetic approach in the writing, and
extremely intricate details in the art, her portion of the issue is
almost a completely different book, but beautiful nonetheless. This
first chapter of World's Finest has set the bar really high.
