Lukes journey to Italy gets him deeper into the criminal underworld unfortunately for him, that means fighting superpowered villains in a death tournament where he cant use the Batwing armor!

    Gotham Spoilers - Gotham Spoilers Dec 4, 2013

    I've said many times before that I've enjoyed this run for the simple, action-packed fun that has been consistently produced month in and month out. That said, this was my favorite issue of Gray and Palmiotti's run on the title so far, because not only did it have that consistent fun, but it played with continuity from a past story (which I loved) in a new way, following up on threads that were left dangling. While always a fun book, this little foray into obscure continuity really gave this issue a nice hook, which I thought was really enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 4, 2013

    BATWING keeps getting better and better. Having a closer connection to Batman and (what's left of) Batman Inc is great but this issue also shows Luke Fox can easily stand on his own without the Dark Knight's help. It's clear Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti are having fun with this series and we're the ones being rewarded. Not only do we get some cool and great looking action, we also see a new character that will hopefully pop up again soon. Do yourself a favor, pick up this issue of BATWING if you haven't already. It's a fun read with a cool story. Read Full Review

    Batwing #26 is a blast. The over-the-top villain, combined with sound character work and a sprinkling of sexual tension make for a fun read. If you're looking for a more lighthearted DC title, maybe it's time you stopped picking up Batman: The Dark Knight or Superman and gave Batwing a try. You'll likely find yourself coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 4, 2013

    Batwing #26 is action packed goodness.  Part Kumite and part James Bond, I hope this issue gets the exposure it should to elevate it to the next level.  It really deserves a bigger audience and this issue is a great one to get it.  With DC really pushing gritty and dark, Batwing is a perfect title for those who still look for fun and action in their comics.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 4, 2013

    Batwing consistently is getting better with the team of Jimmy Palmoitti and Justin Gray. They know what works best for his character and that is keeping him active. Luke is a character who seems to love what he does even when he finds himself in a tough situation. There is always that lingering thought as to what will happen next and anything is possible dealing with Luke and he is a character that you can jump into the action with. There just doesn't seem to be a dull moment with him. As Luke or Batwing they have a good handle of making sure you see enough of both no matter what his next fight is. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Dec 5, 2013

    Batwing #26 is great escapism and a wonderful jumping-on point for new readers. However, I do disagree with how exposition heavy it gets at times and the potential body count that our hero ignores in the story's conclusion. If you approach it as a lighthearted action adventure, you'll have a really good time. I know I had fun reading it. So much fun that I'm going to ignore the body count thing and just go ahead and give it an 8. Yeah, it has some problems, but I think it's satisfying and worth your $2.99. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Dec 5, 2013

    The rest of the story is almost perfunctory in its execution. Batwing goes to Rome to capture Caligula, and that's precisely what he does, with remarkably few plot twists tossed in along the way. After building up the hype around Caligula and his criminal empire, the tidy resolution is almost too easy. Read Full Review
