Exclusive Preview: BATWING #21

The new Batwing has been thrown into the action and will now be facing an even bigger threat than he did last issue. It was nice knowing you.

There's been a bit of discussion over the idea of this new Batwing. You have to admit that Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray have added just the right amount of spice to jumpstart this comic. That isn't meant as a knock against the previous issues but they are adding a new layer to the idea and the fact that we have these heavy repercussions laying around should this Batwing's identity be uncovered.

DC Comics has given us an exclusive look at the next issue, on sale June 3. Hopefully this won't be the end of the new Batwing.

Art doesn't look bad. Dialogue isn't t terrible. Lion-Mane is a little bit over the top. Just still can't get pass the last issue with the whole he was born to wear the suit or whatever.

I like Luke as Batwing more than David. His suit reminds me more of T'Challa's though.

Just thought I'd give you a heads-up on that G-Man, thanks for the preview. This new shift in Batwing is pretty awesome -- I find this new version of Batwing just more exciting, the art is better and it's actually fun!

You're only one issue behind if you plane on starting soon. Batwing #20 was his first full debut.

sadly it's not. This book should've been cancelled a while ago, I only think they're keeping it so they don't get heat about cancelling another black hero's shine like when the green lantern cartoon or jla or whatever it was stopped using the black green lantern. I've stuck with it for a year and it was a pretty horrible year.

#19. I wasn't that much of a fan of the issue itself, but #20 was much better.

Hmm.... is it me or does the cover seems a heck of a lot more intimidating than the actual villain within the pages? Maybe it's the art? =/

I like this Batwing better then the original, suit and characters. Although he clearly gets his design points from Batman Beyond as opposed to the Back Panther in my book

Batwing seemes to be using an excessive amount of sprays, but the question remains, did Batman entrust him with the shark repellent?

I really hope this doesn't get cancelled. Batwing is very different then the other Batcharacters and I reaally like him. And I know Jimmy Palmiotti will do a great job.
