Using the iconic
city of Giza as the stage, and cleverly taking readers back to the
events of issue #1, Judd Winick presents "I am Happiest When at
War." Batwing and Massacre fight each other once again, and this
time the round goes to the hero; sadly for him, just to barely do
it, and save the lives of innocents, he was willing to cross the
line heroes are not supposed to cross. This forces the question:
does the end justify the means in this case?
Winick also reveals
what motivated David Zavimbe to become a vigilante, and his first
encounter with Batman; but his past also catches up with him, when
he realizes who Massacre might truly be. Great way to toss away
linear narrative and play with flashbacks to tell the story so
readers can put the puzzle together themselves. Just a couple more
of issues before the truth is uncovered and the final battle ensues.
