    So, you know what was awesome about this book? That this issue made Batwing really feel part of the DCU. Him working with Nightwing, Batwing, and the JLI really cemented him as someone more than a bit player made by Morrison for his INC story, who surprisingly was handed a book after being on about 6 total pages. This was just a big super hero action issue, which I really enjoyed. You can't go wrong with a book like that every now and then. The only negative was some of the inking. Marcus To is a guy who you can really tell when others ink him, a lot like Jim Lee. Given that I know Fed Ex fucked up a lot, if not all of the pages when he shipped them to the inker, I have to imagine a reason why there are so many on this particular issue, is because they were strapped for time. A lot of the guys who helped out inking just look really inconsistent, compared to Winn, who is the regular inker. But, it didn't actually take away from my enjoyment, just was noticeable is all.

    It's hard to watch a title that started with so much emotion and originality as Batwing in its current, neutered state. The onslaught of by-the-numbers capes-and-tights plot points has brought this series down to the lower echelons of the Bat-titles. Both writer and artist have it in them to restore this title to its former glory, but I have to think that the more distance between it and the JLI or other Bat-titles, the better it will be.

    This issue was mediocre at best. There are too many better books coming out today to bother with this. Read Full Review
