On his way to Gotham
in order to save two former super heroes from certain death, Batwing
leans the terrible secret of Africa's prime meta human team. The
Kingdom steals the show in this issue by Judd Winick, even though
their story is told using flashbacks. The reason why things went the
way they did and the choices they were forced to make, were written
well within the realm of logic, and showed why a terrible thing was
allowed to happen just to prevent one ten times worse.
Between The Kingdom's backstory and the Bat-family's appearance in
the book, there was not much Batwing to talk about; let's hope this
does not become the norm -although some more Kingdom wouldn't be a
bad thing. The one factor that was detrimental to the story was the
artwork by Dustin Nguyen. It's already been announced that Ben
Oliver is leaving the book, but this was the one issue that would
have looked fantastic pencilled by him. Overall, great writing,
below average art.
