The solo adventures of Batwoman are coming to an end, for now.
DC's solicitations for August 2018 confirm Batwoman #18 will be the finale of the series, launched in February 2017 by writer Marguerite Bennett. She's joined for the final issue by artist Fernando Blanco.
The finale teases high stakes for Kate Kane's superhero career and personal life as she teams with Renee Montoya to take on Clock King. In the midst of busting the villain's drug operation, Batwoman must decide whether she wants to give her relationship with Montoya another shot.

It’s the series finale, and there’s a lot of drama to resolve for Kate Kane, both in and out of costume. As Batwoman, she teams with Renee Montoya to thwart Clock King’s latest time-bending enterprise: selling a drug that allows criminals to know if their crime will be successful—before it’s committed. But Batwoman’s facing a quandary to boot: Take this drug off the street, or use it herself to stop crime? The only fight tougher is the personal one: Should Kate and Renee give their relationship another chance?
While Batwoman's comic series comes to a close this August, the year should be an eventful one for the character as she is slated to make her live-action debut on Arrow during its upcoming seventh season.
Batwoman #18 goes on sale Aug. 15 from DC.
