What’s New With Batwing?

So as you’ve probably noticed by now, I’ve been talkin’ a lot about Batwing lately. I haven’t bought the 20th issue yet, but I imagine I will if I find myself with a slight bit of extra pocket change when I’m near the comic shop. Mostly, I’m waiting until I’ve dropped a couple other books, which I mentioned I’d be doing, but I’m also waiting to see if these changes and better writing will stay consistent as time goes by.

So what is it about the new Batwing that I really like? Well, I think it’s mainly on account of Luke Fox pretty much being Terry McGinnis. No, really, he’s essentially African-American Terry, not just in how the new Batwing suit is very similar to the Batman Beyond costume, but in the way he acts, how Bruce is monitoring him while he’s in the field, and the witty chemistry between the two.

I love how that one panel to the left pretty much summed up how a lot of people originally thought of the scenario. lol

And frankly, anything a person could do to remind me of Batman Beyond is a good thing, which is part of the reason I REALLY liked Bryan Q. Miller‘s run on Batgirl, but with this, if I wasn’t trying to be smart with my money and how many comics I buy a week, this would be on my pull list in a snap. And I don’t know if Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray are both just big fans of Batman Beyond, or if they actually did work with the show, but either way, not complaining with what we’ve got.

In addition to all that, I do like how they’ve staged this, that Luke is doing this behind his dad’s back and that Lucius Fox is not happy with his son’s choices in life. It creates an interesting situation, and you’re left wondering how long he can possibly work for Batman Incorporated and not have his father find out. Plus, the idea that Luke is a highly intelligent mixed martial artist gives him cred as someone you’d want as a solo operative.

Anyway, that’s my two cents on the subject. If the writing continues to be good on it, expect me to start picking it up soon. Ja né!
