Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Some of the most refined and cinematic art we've seen.” – IGN 
Library Journal
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, David Zavimbe, a member of the Tinasha Police Department and former child soldier, has taken on the new mantle of Batwing. Supplied and trained by Batman, Incorporated, he finds himself facing a villain called Massacre who has been slaughtering former members of the Kingdom, a revered pan-African superhero team. In trying to save the Kingdom, Batwing discovers that, under the mask, Massacre might be someone from Batwing’s past. Colorist Brian Reber uses an eye-catching blend of blues, yellows, and oranges for the present Batwing and substitutes green for his past.

Verdict Winick (Pedro and Me) has spun a gripping story with a unique setting, while Oliver’s lifelike art is nothing short of spectacular. With some graphic crime scene violence, this title is recommended for older teens and adults who are interested in comics that tackle serious international issues.—Heather Williams, Whatcom Community Coll., Bellingham, WA(c) Copyright 2011.

    As part of the New 52 Batman Family, Batwing makes for a interes

    As part of the New 52 Batman Family, Batwing makes for a interesting character. Unlike previous heroes with a tragic beginning turned to justice, David Zamvimbi lives thru his family tragedy by becoming a brutal child solider in the early days of this DCU Congo civil war. David's past and his becoming a member of Batman Inc is a new fresh take on the classic Batman (volume 1) #250 that brings out another seeker for justice that Batman's legacy represents.
