    Despite some weird time questions, this served as a great introduction to Luke Fox, Batwing Ver. 2.0. A good first impression was absolutely crucial for this character/book, and Palmiotti and Gray delivered on that front. I'm not excited and interested to see where this more relevant Batwing will go in the coming months, and a big part of that is due to this issue. Read Full Review

    The new Batwing is here and makes an explosive debut. We were introduced to him last issue but Palmiotti and Gray throw him straight into the action to show us what he can do. By skating over the first moments with the new Batwing suit, there is a slight rushed feeling but it does keep the story moving and we do get some flashbacks showing how things happened. We've seen different styles or art in this series and there is a very nice feel to what we get in this issue. There is a feeling of excitement as we witness the birth of a new member of the Bat-Family. Yes it's unfortunate we no longer have the previous Batwing here but whether it's the new character or Palmiotti and Gray, my excitement has dramatically increased. I can't wait to see more.

    Down the road what seems to set the tone for the story is his attitude towards being Batwing. He's unsure of his ability, he likes to be independent, and he doesn't quite take orders as well. That will get him into more trouble than he has already and I'm sure that Palmiotti can handle. Read Full Review

    For a first issue, the new Batwing looks alright. If you're even the slightest bit curious about the new direction of this series then I think issue #20 is worth checking out. No regrets here. I read it a month ago now and it still sticks in my mind so that has to count for something. Read Full Review

    All in all, it's a less than illustrious first outing for our latest Batwing and time will tell if he's ready to ride to the occasion. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Sean Elks May 5, 2013

    Batwing is a decent enough action book, but it fails to stand out in the crowd of other Batman titles. Luke Fox is borrowing characteristics from other Bat-characters rather than developing any of his own, and he's being oversold as the one true Batwing. I guess it's nice that DC Comics is trying to keep a prominent black character in Batman's franchise, but so far, Luke Fox comes off as a major step down from David Zavimbe. Read Full Review
